Coverage Analysis of Your Catalog


All shops want good product information for as many of their products as possible. Therefore, knowing your catalog coverage is critical before implementing Icecat and choosing between Open and Full Icecat. In general, Icecat strives to cover at least 90% of the stock portfolios of mainstream distributors. Icecat, together with its brand, distribution, and retail partners, monitors this coverage daily as input for editors.

  1. Login or Register at Icecat.

2. Upload your catalog to Icecat – Go to “Upload your file” at and setup the import.

4. The results will give you the match percentages for Open and Full Icecat, and you will get a list of the products Icecat didn’t recognize.

Extensive analysis (Do it yourself)

If you want a more extensive analysis, you can download the whole catalog of Icecat: This enables you to make extensive coverage for yourself. We have to warn you. However, this is a lot of work.

Explanation of the information.

  • Market presence=Y in the matching file indicates that we notice that the product is currently present at least in one distributor’s catalog.
  • Quality=Icecat means that Icecat editors have standardized the data sheet.
  • Quality=SUPPLIER means that the data-sheet is auto-imported from a manufacturer’s CMS and may be queued for standardization.
  • Quality=NOEDITOR means that our editors did not create a data sheet yet, nor did we auto-import manufacturer data; so, it is only the raw data as we received it from channel partners.
