FNAC

WARNING!

Fnac uses the Mirakl platform to manage the creation of products in its marketplace.

To create new products, you must request the creation of a "FNAC-Mirakl" feed and choose the universe corresponding to your products via this link.

All the setting information can be found on Point 3 of this article.

1. How does FNAC work?

1.1 Before creating your FNAC feed

Contact Fnac (vendeurspros.mp@fnac.com) to know if you are eligible to sell your products on their website.

1.2 Two types of feed available for FNAC

To list products on FNAC, reference products have to exist on the marketplace.

There are two types of channel available for Fnac:

  • Fnac Marketplace API: enables to publish and update your offers on Fnac and to retrieve your orders.
  • Fnac Mirakl - (product universe): enables to create new products on Fnac. You have to use this channel in addition to the "Fnac Marketplace API" if your products don't exist in the Fnac catalogue yet.

1.3 Variation Values

FNAC doesn't manage products variations and will create a separate product page for each product variation from your products catalogue.

For instance, there will be different product pages for a cell-phone available in different colors on FNAC:
- One product sheet for the product X in black
- One product sheet for the product X in grey
- One product sheet for the product X in red
- One product sheet for the product X in blue

Note: Use the Segmentation to exclude the "parent" type of products from your feed.

2. Configure your FNAC Marketplace API feed

Once your FNAC marketplace API feed has been created, products are automatically send to FNAC.

FNAC uses your EAN codes to match your offers with the existing products.

2.1 You already have products displayed on FNAC?

If you already have products live on FNAC, these products have to be set with a quantity of 0 within your FNAC account, before we can upload your feed. To do so, you need to upload an empty .csv file in a “replacement” mode within your FNAC account.

If you need help, your FNAC account manager should be able to assist you.

2.2 Field matching

2.2.1 ID products/EAN codes fields

Once the catalog is sent, connections EAN / ID products are final and can not be changed in the marketplace. By default, we match the field with your field containing identifiers products, but if you have multiple fields Id Products (product_id, internalref, SKU, reference_product…), you will have to check that the matching field Offer_reference fits well to your Product ID used internally.

There are two fields to check : 

If this is not the right field that was Matched, warn the support by ticket.

2.2.2 Definition of other FNAC fields

An example of matching fields : 

price : This field should contain the item's price (min. 0.90€). Offers with less than 0.90€ price can not be sent or updated on FNAC.
product_state : product status, 9 possible values (see definition of fields). An incorrect or missing value will block the sending of datas and therefore the update offers.
quantity : an integral number strictly between 0 and 999. Wrong value (-1 or 1000) or missing will block the sending of datas and therefore the update offers.
You need to create automatic rules to modify the quantities of your products if they are not included in this range.
description : precise description of the specific product to the seller. Typically, vendors provide information about their products, such as delivery time, shipping country or other custom message to be displayed in the list of offers on FNAC records. In the case of a used product for example, specify the state of degradation of the product - limited to 255 char.
internal_comment : internal review of the listing - limited to 255 because.
product_type : the type of product reference transmitted (Ean, ISBN, FnacID) capitalization of this field must be respected. Exceptions, you should not modify the contents of this field.
