Menu Feed Setup for Weedmaps

The Menu Feeds feature in Green Bits automates the process of managing your store's menu on popular online listing services such as Weedmaps. Once you complete the initial setup process, Green Bits will automatically update your Weedmaps menu in real time. To get started, follow the steps below, and see our video tutorial on Vimeo.

Note: If you've already created a menu in Weedmaps, enabling this integration will not affect your existing menu. 

Using a different menu service? Green Bits also supports menu integration with Leafly, Baker, and Wikileaf.

Before you begin:

Before creating your Menu Feed, it's a good idea to make sure you have your product list up to date and well structured. Check out these articles on Product Types and Naming Conventions for tips and recommendations.

You'll also need to create a Weedmaps account, if you haven't already done so.

1. Select Marketing from the top menu bar.

2. Select Menu Feeds, then Add Menu Feed.

3. Name your menu feed and select Weedmaps.

Note: This name is only visible to you.

5. Set Menu Groups.

Once you've selected Weedmaps from the Menu Listing drop-down, you'll see a list of default Menu Groups. Here is where you will filter the products that get published to Weedmaps and set the parameters for how your products will be listed.

Each Menu Group is separated by product type (Flower, Concentrate, Edibles, etc.), with most groups set to commonly used defaults.

You can remove Menu Groups by clicking the X near the upper right of each group, or add more groups by clicking Add Menu Group at the bottom of the page.

Tip: Determine the order in which you want these groups to appear on Weedmaps before setting the filters and parameters, as you will not be able to change the order later.

6. Set filters and parameters.

Group Name - Choose from Indica, Sativa, Hybrid, Edible, Concentrate, Drink, Clone, Seed, Tincture, Gear, Topicals, Preroll, and Wax

Product Filters - Apply one or more filters for Product Type, Flower Type, Concentrate Type, Tags, Without Tags, or Quantity on hand.

Price By - "Weight" will display prices for a gram, ounce, eighth, and etc. "Unit" will display the price for each unit of a menu item. Typically flower-based products (including pre-rolls and pre-packaged flower), concentrates, or anything else sold in various weights will be priced by weight. Edibles and seeds will usually be priced by unit.

Product Name Format - Controls how your products' names show up on Weedmaps. Check to make sure your products all have the associated fields filled in. For example, if you choose "{{strain}} by {{brand}}" each product will need to have both a Strain and Brand specified, otherwise it will not show up on Weedmaps.

  • {{strain}} - shows only the strain name, e.g., "Purple Haze"
  • {{strain}} by {{brand}} - shows the strain and brand, e.g., "Purple Haze by Greenery Farms"
  • {{strain}} {{concentrate type}} by {{brand}}, e.g., "Purple Haze Cartridges by Greenery Farms" or "Purple Haze Shatter by Greenery Farms"
  • {{tiered_pricing_model}}: {{strain}} - if you use tiered pricing, this option will show the names of your price tiers on Weedmaps, e.g., "Top Shelf: Purple Haze"
  • {{tiered_pricing_model}}: {{strain}} by {{brand}}, e.g., "Top Shelf: Purple Haze by Greenery Farms"
  • {{name}} - uses only exact product name you've entered in Green Bits

Test Results Padding (Optional) - shows a range of test results for all of the products in that category. Let's say for the Indica category you have Products A and B.  Product A has a THC of 5.3% - 5.7%, and Product B 6% - 9.4%.  If you place 2% in the padding range for this group, the results on the menu will show product A 3.3% - 7.7% and product B 4% - 11.4%.

7. Preview your menu feed.

As you edit each field, utilize the preview function in the top right of the page to view what your menu will look like when published. Here you will see your successful listings, as well as unsuccessful ones that will display an error message. Those messages will give tips as to which product parameter to adjust in Green Bits so the listing will populate to Weedmaps. For example, note the pink background indicating errors below. In the two examples, the errors demonstrate missing data for the name and price. To fix them, find the products associated with the errors and adjust the parameters associated with the error, i.e. the price and data needed for the name "{{brand}} and {{strain}}".

Tip: The error message "Missing price that fits into listing services's price columns" may also refer to a missing or incompatible value entered in the "Weight" field on a given product. Weedmaps lists prices for weight-based products in columns corresponding to commonly-sold weights 0.5 g, 1 g, 2 g, 3.5 g, 7 g, 14 g, and 28 g. Products with weights other than these exact amounts cannot be listed with these standard columns. 

8. Publish your menu feed.

Once everything looks good and there are no more error messages in the preview function, save the Menu Feed, and return to the Menu Feed list screen. From there click Publish.

Set up complete! Now you should see your menu populate on Weedmaps with all of your active products. Allow up to 1 hour for the entire menu to publish.
