Why Does My Product Catalog Only Have 250 Products?

We have limit the size of the a single feed by using feed pagination to 250 products. If you have lots of products and lots of variants in your store, you will need to upload multiple feeds to your product catalog.

With feed pagination, it will split up your store's items into multiple feeds. You can then add those feeds to the Facebook product catalog where they will be combined into a single product set. 

To use feed pagination, you will need to set two parameters in your RSS product feed.

1) Limit - the number of Shopify products per feed page (default is 250) but you can go up to 10,000

2) Page - the feed page number

To add the parameters:

  1. Log in to Pixel Bay
  2. Click "Settings"
  3. Copy the RSS Feed
  4. Paste the RSS Feed into a new browser. At the top, you will see the following:

    <!--Current Page:--> By default, the RSS feed will be on page 1.

    <!--Items On Current Page:--> Number of products on the page.

    <!--Per Page:--> Default maximum number of products including variants per page, which is 250. However you can set this, to a maximum of 10,000 products per page.
    <!--Total Pages:--> Total number of pages

    <!--Total Items:--> Total number of products including variants in your store.

    By knowing how many "Total Items" you have in you store, you will know how to set your "page" and "limit" parameters.  

    For Example: Your store has 70,000 products. You can split your RSS feed into 7 pages with 10,000 products per page. In this case, you will have to do to add the following " ?limit=10000&page=1" to the end of your RSS Feed URL.

  6. Click on the "Business Tools Menu" icon on the navigation menu at the left hand side and click "Catalogue Manager"

  10. Next, click on "Create" and then go to your newly created catalog.
  11. Once your catalogue is created, you will see a message "Catalogue created".
  12. Click "View Catalogue" to proceed with the setup.
  13. Once you are in your product catalog, click on "Products" from the navigation menu
  14. Then, click on "Add Products".
  15. Select "Use Data Feeds" to upload your product catalog feed.
  16. Then, click "Next".
  17. Select "Set a Schedule" and paste in the product catalog feed url that you have copied earlier from Pixel Bay.
  18. For the Feed URL, enter in your first RSS Feed. Using the same example above, you'll enter in:
  19. Click "Create Feed".
  20. Then at the top menu, click on "Product Feeds". Repeat the steps again until you have added all the product feed URL in your product catalog.
