How to import my products in a TikTok catalog?

Before importing your products into the TikTok Ads Manager, you must create a catalog for each different "Country/Language/Currency" group. Each catalog will host the product data corresponding to each "Country/Language/Currency" group. To know how to create a TikTok catalog, click here

To import your first product feed into your first catalog, follow the procedure below:













- On the fly data recovery method (catalog < 5000 products):




- OR XML data file recovery method (catalog > 5000 products): 




If your URL is password protected, enter the login information (optional).




Important note: if you have created a CRON task to update an XML file that will be retrieved by TikTok, be careful to set this CRON task so that it updates the XML file before TikTok retrieves it. Also try to space the schedules of both tasks because depending on the size of your catalog, updating the XML file may take more or less time. For example, if you have set your CRON task so that the XML file is updated every day at 3:00 am, set the file recovery by TikTok every day at 6:00 am. Also, be careful that the time zone selected is the same for the CRON task and for TikTok recovery.





Repeat the previous steps for all your product catalogs (as a reminder, a catalog corresponds to a feed, i. e. a single group "Country/Language/Currency").

If for any reason you want to import your products without waiting for the next automatic update, you can do so by going to the "Product Sources" tab of the menu on the left, clicking on the name of your feed and on the "Request Data Now" button of the "Overview" sub-tab:
