Houzz is an American website and online community about architecture, interior design and decorating, landscape design and home improvement.
Basic requirements for Houzz channel:
1. Within Shopify, make sure all products (including variations) have a unique SKU assigned.
2. For each SKU you want to list on Houzz, make sure you have a valid UPC/EAN/GTIN barcode assigned in your Shopify admin.
We highly recommend acquiring barcodes from your manufacturer or purchasing your own barcodes (at www.gs1.org or www.speedybarcodes.com).
NOTE: Creating your own barcodes or using incorrect/invalid ones can result in getting your seller accounts penalized, or even closed.
3. We submit the feed to Houzz via FTP connection.
We will need your Houzz Account Manager (or a Houzz Support rep) to provide us with your Houzz FTP credentials. They will typically set this up on their end for you.
This is very important and required for us to be able to send a product data feed over to your Houzz Seller Account.
4. Item dimensions required by Houzz
Houzz requires the following information:
As well as:
Shipping Lead time (min)
Shipping Lead time (max)
FreightItem? Yes or No
Assembly Required? Yes or No
Minimum Order Quantity
We know that in Shopify, they do not provide you with extra data fields to satisfy this requirement for Houzz (as well as others). And more often times than not, the item dimensions will vary per item.
But, within Shoppingfeed, we offer a Rules tool that will allow you to create and manipulate that data.
5. Product Titles (character limit)
Titles need to be under 80 characters for Houzz to approve your products.
