Sales Catalog

The Sales Catalog integration takes a catalog of products available at the fulfillment partner for distribution and loads the catalog information into the Digital River Physical Fulfillment system. This feed typically contains the following data:

  • SKU of the fulfillment partner
  • Manufacturer’s part number for the product
  • Weight and dimension data of the product

Digital River also requires the price of the product if Digital River has a distribution relationship with the partner.

This feed is not a Site Catalog that provides content and assets to the commerce site hosted at Digital River Global Commerce.
