Business-to-business platform Fashion Cloud created a new model for eCommerce product data aligned with industry standards and aimed at helping merchants integrate information from brands into their digital stores, Fashion United reported.
Fashion Cloud partnered with Bte and Euretco to develop the guide, which will assist over 17,000 merchants that use the platform to tap the product data that brands provide. Further, some 2,000 retailers use Fashion Cloud to pull together product data from other brands.
“We appeal to every supplier to follow this standard and will work in the coming weeks as well as months to support more brands in meeting these guidelines,” Alies ter Kuile , co-owner of Fashion Cloud, said.
