The online giant real.de is one of Germany’s top new marketplaces. The supermarket chain ‘real’ merged with the online marketplace hitmeister.de to become one of the biggest platforms in the country. For the first time in Germany, a classic retailer and a growing online marketplace are combining their expertise and are offering dealers and sellers new opportunities. On real.de, online buyers can find more than 12 million products from various categories. Their slogan “Einmal hin. Alles drin” which can be translated to “Once there. Get everything” shows that the German company can be considered a competitor for Amazon and eBay on the German market.
With Channable, you can create a connection to real.de in no time. We make sure that you can deliver high quality data without the extra effort. A distinction is made by real.de between content data (ie. title, EAN, image, description etc.) and offer data (price, delivery time etc.). A separate upload is necessary for each data set. In Channable, content data is sent via a feed, whereas offer data is sent directly with an API to real.de. Offer data can only be created in real.de as soon as they have received EAN codes.
