Before publishing the catalog on the marketplaces, it's important to manage the settings
, such as prices, shipping, payment methods, etc., and inlcude Filters

These settings are to be managed for each configured marketplace and catalog. When they are not editable, it means that they can not be managed for that specific marketplace.

The Filters tab
is used to decide what to publish on the marketplaces by adding Inclusions
filters based on various parameters such as: Shop category Brand name SKU code EAN code Price range Min / Max Qty Weight range
