  • More importantly, you will need to choose the primary feed that you want to link. This should be the feed that you’ve already created for your online store. Moreover, this primary feed MUST be from other sources, not from the Socialshop app itself. Otherwise, it would cause conflict and become unable to link the supplementary feed to the primary one.
