What Products to Use


In order for Duel to generate UGC Galleries and enable product tagging within the platform, it is necessary to have a product catalogue. A product catalogue serves as a central repository of information about your products, allowing Duel to retrieve and display relevant product details.

When logged into the Duel Dashboard > head to settings (top right dropdown) > Product Catalog 

Catalogue Types

  1. JSON: A JSON feed is best if your product catalogue changes frequently, the catalogue is updated daily.
  2. CSV: A manual generation and upload process is required to update the catalogue, this can work if your product catalogue does not change very often. 

Data Field Mappings

The following data fields are supported 

Title Description Example
sku Product SKU/ID 12345
name Product name Flyte Black
description Product description LISSOM® Flytes have been designed to help you live in the movement everyday.
url Product URL
src_img Image source link
price Product price (optional) 97
currency Product currency (ISO 4217) (optional) USD
region Product region (optional) United Kingdom

If a brand is offering multiple currencies or building a mixed region programme they can leave price, currency & region empty. 


What Products to Use?

If your website does not reload between colourways/SKUs, we recommend using parentIDs.

Duel has the capability to support both ParentIDs and SUKs, but it is important to carefully consider and choose the best setup for your brand. It can be challenging to switch approaches once implemented, so it is advised to make the right choice from the beginning. There are primarily two approaches to consider:

  1. Use of ParentIDs
  2. Use of SKUs

This choice will effect two main areas:

UGC Galleries


The choice will effect what shows on product display pages.

  1. ParentIDs: Various colours will be mixed up together in the UGC gallery.
  2. SKUs: Colours will be specific for the SKU selected in the UGC Gallery.

Any decisions you make in the product catalogue will also effect how end-users interact with the platform, including when they product tag and when they view the products featured in UGC.



In the history tab, you have the ability to view all activities, updates, and any potential errors that may occur for troubleshooting purposes. This feature allows you to easily track and monitor the progress and performance of your product catalogue.


Brands have the ability to customise the default field mappings in the settings section. Changing the target field to what their catalogue shows.
