The price of a product is passed on via
- the product feed
- the shopitem api
Your feed is picked up several times a day to process the adjusted prices and delivery times. This process follows a fixed schedule with two-hour intervals. Your adjusted prices and delivery times are processed in our database within one hour.
Prices are forwarded to the shopitem api at the initiative of the websop. These updates are immediately processed in our database. These prices are used real time in the checkout of the Beslist shopping cart. The renewal of prices in the search results differs per product category. All prices in the search results are updated at least once a day. We strive for continuous, real-time updates in the product categories with the most visitors and changes.
The new discount price is passed on via the price field. (This is in contrast to some other channels, where the discount price has its own separate price field).
In addition, the original price can be passed on in a separate field. This is possible both in the feed and via the shopitem api.
If an original price is passed on, the discount percentage is automatically calculated and displayed with the offer on beslist.nl
To be able to update prices or discount prices, it is important that the corresponding product with all specifications has been successfully processed. Therefore always place the product in the feed as early as possible, and indicate with the help of the display column that it cannot be published yet. Products that are in the feed before 7 pm are available for publication the following morning. The moment the day deal starts, it can be passed on via the feed or via the shopitem api. The precise moment at which the deal is also available in the search results differs per product category.
When the deal ends, the display column or the delivery time (not available) can indicate that the product is no longer available. If this is done with the shopitem api, the product immediately cannot be ordered in the shopping cart checkout.
Black Friday / Timing
In some cases, discount promotions start exactly at midnight or end at midnight.
Stopping a promotional offer can be accurately indicated for products in the shopping cart via the shopitem api.
This exact timing at the start of a promotion is not yet supported by beslist.nl. The processing of prices and products is tailored to the largest volumes in visitors and orders on the website. That is why we aim to do the processing overnight and publish the new offers in the search results during the morning.
