A Product Feed is a set of products fetched or uploaded from a source at once. It contains information about the various attributes of the product and can be used to populate Product Catalogs.
Product Feeds can be added to Product catalogs by clicking on the Add Product Feed button for any Product Catalog either on the All catalogs page, or on the Catalog Details page.
A product catalog can have one or multiple product feeds. Adding a product feed to a product catalog can be performed as a one-time upload of a file, as well as a one-time or scheduled sync to a URL. The supported file types for a Product feeds for both these scenarios is CSV, XML, TSV, JSON.

- Processed with Error – there were some errors with some of the products in the uploaded product feed. The feed has been uploaded partially
