I understood the difference between the offers and the products, but how to know if it is necessary to send my products?

1. Either you have the certainty that your products do not exist on Rakuten France, i.e. they are not known through their EAN code, in this case you will need to create your products in order to be able to publish offers on them.

2. You resell known manufactured products whose EAN code is known in Rakuten France, so you are sure that your products exist on Rakuten France, so follow the tutorial products creation.

3. If you have any doubt, you sell such products marketed by one or more suppliers that could be sold on Rakuten France. In this case your products may already exist on Rakuten France and then you could send your offers without waiting integration.

In this case follow the initial offers publishing tutorial.

Then, if there are any products to create, you can create a posteriori, Rakuten France will then create the products that do not exist in their catalog, you will follow the products creation tutorial.
