Import Criteo Data to Google Sheets

premium

In this guide, we’ll walk through how to import Criteo data directly into Google Sheets, using the API Connector add-on for Sheets.

Criteo uses the client credentials OAuth flow so we'll get your API credentials and set up a custom connector.

Part 2: Connect Criteo to API Connector

  2. Scroll to the bottom of the sidebar and click Add Custom OAuth
  3. Fill in the Custom OAuth modal as follows:
    • OAuth Grant TypeClient Credentials
    • NameCustom Criteo
    • Token URLhttps://api.criteo.com/oauth2/token
    • Client IDAPI Key provided by Criteo
    • Client SecretAPI Secret provided by Criteo
  4. Click Save

Part 3: Get Criteo Data in Sheets

You can create a request using any of the endpoints and parameters described in Criteo's documentation. Select the custom OAuth connection you created above for each request.

Example #1

This request shows how to fetch your advertiser IDs, which you'll need for subsequent requests.

  • Application: Custom
  • Method: GET
  • Request URL: https://api.criteo.com/2023-01/advertisers/me
  • OAuth: Custom Criteo
criteo-advertiserId

Example #2

You can use the same setup to fetch data from any part of Criteo's API, by changing the request method and URL as directed in the documentation. For example, if you're fetching analytics stats, a request might look like this:

  • Application: Custom
  • Method: POST
  • Request URL: https://api.criteo.com/2023-01/statistics/report
  • OAuth: Custom Criteo
  • Request body (json): {"advertiserIds":"your_advertiser_id","startDate":"2023-01-01","endDate":"2023-10-01","format":"json","dimensions":["Campaign","AdsetId","Day"],"metrics":["Displays","Clicks","AdvertiserCost"],"timezone":"UTC","currency":"EUR"}
