Specification for retailer connection to OUTTRA

Here you can find the specification for connecting a retailer to OUTTRA

To connect you to the OUTTRA Brand (Where-To-Buy Local & Where-To-Buy Online) interfaces, we need a daily updated CSV or XML file containing all EANs/GTINs of the available articles of your store(s) and/or your online store of the corresponding brand(s) on variant level, i.e. one line per article number/size/color. If no EANs/GTINs are maintained, we can calculate these EANs/GTINs based on the manufacturer article number, manufacturer color, manufacturer color number and manufacturer size.

This file will be sent to us via FTP or download link. You will receive your FTP access data from our support.

Our system processes the file every four hours.

UTF-8 encoding should be used.

Here you find an example of such an export-file: outtra_wtb_csv_template.csv

The following fields should be included in the file.

  • gtin
    This field should contain the GTIN/EAN of the corresponding variant.
  • name (optional)
    The name of the item variant should be submitted here.
  • brand (only necessary if no gtin/ean is maintained)
    The brand of the article is to be transmitted here.
  • manufacturer_article_number (only necessary if no gtin/ean is maintained)
    In this field the supplier article number is expected.
  • manufacturer_color_name (only necessary if no gtin/ean maintained)

  • manufacturer_color_code (only necessary if no gtin/ean maintained)

  • url (only necessary for online or multichannel retailers)
    If you run an online store, you can transmit the URL to the article variant in your store here.
  • stock
    In this field the stock of the respective item is transmitted.
  • storeId (only necessary for multiple stores)
    If you have more than one store, you can enter a store ID here, which can be used to identify a specific store. Afterwards, please inform us via our support which store ID is to be assigned to which store address.

The file can also contain more fields. We will then only read out those that are important for us.
