Introduction to TikTok Feed

A TikTok catalog feed serves as a data file enabling you to upload product details for display and advertising on TikTok. By updating the feed file, your product information stays synchronized with your online store or website, ensuring accuracy and timeliness in the products showcased on TikTok.

TikTok catalog feeds are usually in XML or CSV format, depending on your choice and the requirements of TikTok. The feed file should contain several required fields, such as product ID, title, description, price, and image URL, and some optional fields, such as brand, category, and inventory.

TikTok catalog feeds allow you to better manage and promote your products, showcase them to TikTok users, improve brand exposure, and attract potential buyers.

 


 

Generating TikTok Feed XML using Smart Feed

Note: To generate TikTok feed XML, you need to first create a Google feed and complete asset authorization as required.

1. In Smart Feed, click New feed on the Feed page.

2. Select the Google channel and click Start creating.

3. Fill in the basic feed information, including:

  • Feed name: You can customize the feed name after the content is fixed to facilitate identification and management.
  • Target market: It refers to the countries or regions where the products in your Google feed are mainly intended for.
  • Language: It specifies the language used for products in your Google feed.
  • Whether to enable the switch: The status of the switch indicates the feed status. Once enabled, you need to upload products to Google Merchant Center (GMC) immediately.

4. Set product upload rules. Define the scope of products you want to upload to GMC.


5. Set product field rules. Select the data fields of products you want to upload to GMC, such as title, description, price, and size. (If you use “macro tags”as field values for synchronization, the values will be automatically updated as product information in the admin panel is adjusted.)

6. Click New feed.

7. Go to the feed list page and click the Get link icon.

8. Click Generate xml link in the TikTok channel.

  • The time it takes to generate the file is related to the number of products in your existing feed. Generally, it takes about 10-60 minutes. If the link is not generated after 60 minutes, please contact SHOPLINE customer support.

9. After the link file is generated, click Copy Link to obtain the TikTok feed XML file. [screenshot]
