  4. Go to the Omnivore 'Dashboard' and click 'Upload to Catch' to update your listings.
  5. Your description on products will then include the product description from your ecommerce followed by FREE SHIPPING - we aim to deliver within 7 days.


You can also use any of the following product data attributes to enhance your product descriptions for Catch: Note that these Product data attributes are case sensitive, so always enter them exactly as they are below (e.g  $brandName or $sku).

  • $sku – this is the SKU of your product.
  • $brandName – this is the brand name (if you have assigned one).
  • $retailerName – your store name.
  • $colours – if the product comes in different colours, the list of the colours as you described them, e.g. Coral, Midnight, Gunmetal
  • $standardColours - similar to $colours except the colour names are as mapped to the standard colour names, e.g. Pink, Black, Grey for the above example
  • $productName – the original title of a product.
  • $amount – the products selling price e.g $89.95
  • $rrp - product's RRP price

  • By default, any additional text or product data you enter here will be appended to the end of your existing product description.
  • If you wish to change where it appears, you can reference the existing product description and any new text/product data like so:
    Below changes the description to have
    10% off all Catch orders
    Your current description
    Name: Product Name
    SKU: 12345


Removing or Changing Text from ALL Product Descriptions


Sometimes, you may need to add or remove certain text from all your product descriptions, before listing them on Catch. For example, you may wish to remove a promotional message from your product descriptions as it is specific only to your own eCommerce store. 


To remove a sentence which may not be relevant to selling on Catch e.g Next Day Delivery add -##Next Day Delivery##- to the description template. This will remove 'Next Day Delivery' from ALL Product Descriptions.


To replace/add keywords use -## | ##-. For example, to replace "Next Day Delivery" with "Ships in 5 days" add the following to the description template:  -##Next Day Delivery|Ships in 5 days##-  (note the | to split the two).
