Carrefour.es: how to group products
About this article
This article describes Carrefour.es's Código de familia (Family code) attribute, and how it should be mapped depending on the product.
Table of contents
In many categories on Carrefour.es, it is mandatory to group products under a specific 'group number'. On most marketplaces, this sort of grouping is only required for variants – and is done based on a group number like the parent's SKU.
Carrefour.es is different, as it uses a dedicated attribute that must be mapped: Código de familia (Family code). This is always required, even if the product is a standalone.
Products with variants
If you have a product that belongs to a product family, map the parent product's SKU as the Código de familia. In most cases, this is the Parent SKU.
When exporting the product to Carrefour.es, ChannelEngine sets the EAN of the first variant as the Código de familia.
If you have standalone products, map the product's SKU as the Código de familia. In most cases, this is the Merchant product number.
When exporting the product to Carrefour.es, ChannelEngine sets the EAN of the product as the Código de familia.
If you have both types of products in the same category, use an advanced rule based on the product type to map it according to Carrefour.es' requirements.
