New merchants will need to create a new store.

Existing merchants will need to access their current store to locate the data feed file name and ftp credentials.

Chose an appropriate name for your store catalog and the file name you wish to use. 

We recommend "bingshopping" or something similar.

**Save this information for later you will need to enter it into your SingleFeed account.**

Once you are finished labeling your catalog and data feed file name select SAVE. Now navigate to the "FTP SETTINGS" tab to create your ftp credentials.

After you have created your Bing Shopping account and Catalog, please provide us with your login information via the Engines page of your SingleFeed account:

  • In your SingleFeed account, navigate to the "Engines" page and select Microsoft Bing Shopping 
  • Enter your AdCenter username and password and Bing Shopping FTP username and password into the appropriate fields.
  • We recommend using the feed file name 'bingshopping.txt', but any other name matching the one you chose in your adCenter account will work. Please remember to include the file extension (.txt) when saving here. 
  • It takes a few days before Bing will create your FTP location is you are a new merchant. If you receive an error message when saving your information, un-check the "Activate Engine" check-box and save your information without activating the engine. This is usually due to your Bing FTP not being active yet (our system cannot connect to it).
  • Bing may send you an email when your FTP location has been activated (or you can check it under the FTP Settings page in your AdCenter account). When the FTP is active, login to your SingleFeed account, navigate to Engines and Microsoft Bing Shopping, and activate the engine by checking on the "Activate Engine" check-box and clicking on Save. If you still receive an error message, double-check your login information and try again. If this is still unsuccessful, please check with Bing Support (freeshop@microsoft.com) to see if there are issues with your FTP.
