XML feed format

Here are some simple guidelines for preparing an XML feed in order to include your ads in Trovit. If you would like additional information about the XML format, check Wikipedia.

The feed should be written in UTF-8.

The UTF-8 XML file has one ‘trovit’ tag, and one or more ‘ad’ elements. Each ‘ad’ element has basic and optional fields:


Required fields have to be included in the feed as they contain the minimum amount of information necessary for our system to include your ads in Trovit.

See technical specifications for further information about the data types and field restrictions.

  • id: id of the ad on your website (numeric or alphanumeric, however it must be unique because we use it to avoid duplicate entries)

  • title: title of the ad (a concise summary of the listing which does not contain your website’s name or URL).
