Once you have built the layout for your custom Facebook DPA, you need to generate a new Facebook product feed. This feed consists of your dynamic product ads containing the custom overlay you have created for each product. Bannerwise generates this feed URL for you and replaces the images of your original feed with the ads you have just created.
In this chapter of the Beginner's Guide, we will explain how to generate a Facebook feed that you will use in your Facebook catalog later on.
- Click on “Manage” in the hub and click on “Ads”.
- Click on “Publish” on the right of the ad set you want to publish.
- Enter the email address you want your new feed URL to be sent to.
- Click on "Generate feed".
That's it! You will receive an email when the feed is done!
If you check back in the export flow while your feed is being generated, you will see a screen that informs you that the feed generation is still in progress. In this case, simply wait for the notification email to arrive in your inbox. This can take anywhere from five minutes to a few hours, depending on the size of your feed.
Once you receive your new generated feed in your inbox, you can test what your feed looks like. For that, use the Bannerwise feed previewer. Simply add the new feed URL and click on "Check feed".
Congratulations, you are almost done! Follow the steps in this article to create your product catalog on Facebook and set up your campaign!
