Overview

Here you can find an overview and classification of the test results. You can read detailed explanations and troubleshooting tips in the article for the respective test result.


If a catalogue cannot be processed for technical or content-related reasons, a system error is displayed. In the overview of the catalogue versions, the test is assessed as Not OK and the release status automatically changes to rejected.

No preview can be created for catalogue versions with a system error. Release to the customer is also not possible.

You can find information about error analysis and troubleshooting in the article:

System error. Please get in touch with Mercateo.

If items display technical or content-related errors, for instance, because mandatory information such as prices is missing, these are not displayed in the catalogue preview and later on the Mercateo platform. In catalogue management, you can find these faulty items in the test results for the assessment category Items with errors.

The following test results belong to the category Items with errors, the items listed there are not displayed or used productively:

Item with invalid prices
Item with incorrect packaging information
Item with an identical item number
Item with invalid price quantity
Item name (short description) too short
Item number missing
Item without valid order unit
Item without valid tax
Item is on blacklist
Long description contains forbidden content
Contradictory contents in CSV file

If items display quality defects, they can be processed. However, problems may occur later for searches or orders, such as due to the provision of incorrect EANs or manufacturer numbers, missing images or inapplicable information on the scope of packaging within the length description.

For this reason, the errors in the category Item with quality defects must be taken seriously and rectified within catalogue management.

The following test results belong to the category Item with quality defects , the items listed there are displayed and can be used productively:

Item with adapted order or content units
Item with errors in image allocation
Item with an identical item name (short description)
Item with invalid order quantity information
Item with invalid keyword information
Item with insufficient packaging information
Item number too long
Item without valid EAN number
Item without valid manufacturer information
Missing images or PDFs
Error in the product group system
Advice for product content of a CSV file
Long description contains undesired contents

Under the assessment section General information, information and statistics are shown for the catalogue, e.g. number of all items in the catalogue or number of items with errors. This is not an error or quality defect.

The test results are largely self-explanatory. You can find some helpful assessments and explanations under the next points.

Products with BUYER_AID



Description:

This test result is above all important for the customers. In the download, you find an overview of the labels that the supplier has stated in his catalogue in the field BUYER_AID, e.g. the label for the standard or the core product range. In addition, merchandise groups or customer-specific item numbers can be checked that must be contained in the catalogue.

If a certain classification system should be required, e.g. eClass 5.1.4, you also find all information about this in the Excel table provided as a download.

Number of all items in the catalogue with errors


Description:

In this test result, you see how many of your products are not displayed due to errors and thus gain an overview of the quality of the catalogue. You can find the associated item numbers and error causes in the test results, for which a red square is shown in column assessment.

Products that have passed the basic test



Description:

In this test result, all items for a catalogue are listed that, from a technical viewpoint, correspond to the BMEcat specification and the Mercateo requirements.
