New YouTube Merchandise Product Feed

New YouTube Merchandise Product Feed

As already announced, we are updating the domain structure for your Spreadshop. While we’re at it, we’re giving your YouTube merchandise area a nice little technical tune-up. This will make selling your products through YouTube even easier. We will also transfer your product feed to the new domain. Since September 24th, the transfer is complete – no action needed from your side.

Stay tuned and sell merch

Thanks to extensive testing, we do not expect any disruptions or bugs – your merchandise area should still work exactly the same after the changeover. So you can just sit back and relax.

If you sell your store products on other platforms such as Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest in addition to the YouTube merchandise area, you will have to update the product feed yourself. You can find more information here.

Update

The domain update for your Spreadshop is now finished. The new subdomain will simplify your Shop verification for the YouTube merch shelf, making it easier to sell your products directly under your videos. Read all the details here.

Are you ready for your Shop domain to be redirected?

Are you ready for your Shop domain to be redirected?

We’ll soon be redirecting your Shop URL from the old to the new domain. Learn how to customize your store integrations on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Google here.

What does domain redirection mean for my Shop?

On September 27th, domain forwarding will be activated from your old to your new store domain. From this date on, every page view of your old store URL will be redirected to the new one:

SHOPNAME.myspreadshop.xyz

During normal online surfing, nothing changes. Whoever types in your old store URL in their browser will be automatically redirected to the new domain. Nevertheless, you should only use the new store URL from now on.

The Google index will also be switched to the new domain. So whoever searches for your Shop in the future will see your store with the new domain on the search results page.

Next step: update the domain on all your platforms

If you also sell your Shop products on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Google or advertise your store there, then there’s an important step you need to take.

If you do not update your domain on these platforms, you may get error messages.

Therefore, you should definitely adjust your store integration and product feed on all external platforms as soon as possible. This is especially true for:

– the Facebook Business Manger and therefore also for Instagram

– the Google Merchant Center

– Pinterest Shopping

You’ll need to make sure to link your new Shop domain there in order to guarantee that your products can be clicked on and purchased, as well as to ensure that your advertising is correctly displayed.

Why does my Shop need a new domain?

Facebook, Pinterest, and other platforms require subdomain structures for the integration of Shops into their platforms. You can read more about the details and background information here.

Social Commerce: Take your New Spreadshop Domain to New Heights

Social Commerce: Take your New Spreadshop Domain to New Heights

You’ve been asking for an easier verification of your Shop on Facebook, Google and Pinterest for a while. And it’s happening! We’ve optimized the structure of your Spreadshop domain and made it future-proof. You can now sell and advertise products even more effectively on your social networks.

Why does my Shop need a new domain structure?

With the old domain structure, the URL for your Shop looked like this:

shop.spreadshirt.xyz/SHOPNAME

For the past few weeks, social networks like Facebook and Pinterest allowed only subdomain structures to be embedded on their platforms. We’ve fixed this for you by fronting your shop name so it will become a subdomain. You can use the link as follows:

SHOPNAME.myspreadshop.xyz

The same principle also applies to your checkout area. The URL now looks like this:

SHOPNAME.myspreadshop.xyz/checkout

The benefits for you and your customers are massive, and you will enjoy this change for years to come!

Why social commerce is a no-brainer

The changeover to the new domain structure ensures that you can continue to sell Spreadshop products via Google, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest in the future. The verification process has been standardized and made more secure. Social commerce is now easy! You can just upload your product feed, advertise, and sell your products. Let’s go!

How can I get started?

In the transition phase, both the old and the new URL for your Shop will work alongside one another. If someone tries to use the old URL, they will be redirected accordingly.

You can already start adjusting all links to your Shop, everywhere you use them. Here are a few examples:

  • In your social media bios (Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Soundcloud, etc.)
  • In all future social media posts
  • On your flyers, websites, email signatures, etc..
  • The links that integrate your Shop with your website

You can find more information on how to verify your Shop directly on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or via the Google Merchant Center. After that, it’s best to start creating new social and Google Ads right away to boost sales in your Shop.

If you have any questions or comments about the new Spreadshop domain, please leave us a comment or visit the forum.
