Learn all data regeneration options to speed up changes in Mergado

With Mergado, you can quickly get an overview of the changes you've made. Your edits appear after data has been regenerated. Data regeneration has several options. Let's describe where you can use its particular types.

  • After applying the rules, the changes will only be reflected in Mergado.
  • New data from a store is not loaded in this case.
  • The output feed is not updated as well.

  • You can access it in the Settings -> Regenerate page.

What affects the speed of data regeneration in Mergado?

  1. The most time-consuming is processing application rules because they are linked to Mergado via API. Communication is technically more difficult.
  2. The rate of regeneration also affects the number of products in the feed. You can avoid this slowdown by running rules only for the products you watch.
  3. As users, you may affect the rate of data regeneration if you set up Mergado efficiently.


Pay attention to when and how you regenerate data. This can speed up the display of feed changes, giving you valuable extra minutes when you set up your advertising.
