Assign a Template


You have the opportunity to add information to the product descriptions that appear on bidorbuy using ‘Templates’.  This rule allows you to choose which pre-written template you’d like to add to certain products on bidorbuy.


Click 'Create a New Rule', this will open the rule edit page.

Here you can edit the conditions to specify which products this rule applies to or you can keep is for 'all products'

You can choose products based on Product Title, Product Type, Product Vendor, Product Tags, Variant Title or All Products.

Once an option is selected, you will need to select the condition it needs to meet for the products to be mapped.  For example, ‘Product Title’ should ‘contain’ the word 'sunglasses'. You can also choose to have more than one condition by clicking the blue 'add a rule condition' button.

NOTE: If you select ‘Matches Exactly’ you must ensure that the text is input as an exact match including spaces, special characters and letter case (Capitals) otherwise the rule will not work.


Click ‘Assign a Template’

When the new page opens, either select a pre-made template or click ‘create a new template’, this will open up the template editor.

Using the formatting tools in the editor, add the additional information you need.  If you’d like the original product description to be included, add it from the {{Placeholders}} menu as shown in the image above

Once you’ve created your template, save it to add it to the rule.

Click 'update rule', or if you don’t want to change anything or to go back to the previous screen, click ‘cancel’.

If you want to edit, delete or add templates, you can find them by clicking on your account name in the top left corner, then selecting ‘Multichannel settings’. 


From there, select Product Description Templates on the left-hand side menu, then you’ll have the option to either create a new template or edit an existing template.
