What affects the speed of data regeneration in Mergado?

  1. The most time-consuming is processing rules of apps from the Mergado Store because they are linked to Mergado via API. Communication is technically more difficult.
  2. The rate of regeneration is also affected by the number of products in the feed. You can avoid this by applying rules to traced products only.
  3. As a user, you can affect the length 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.
