Some reserved characters in PCDATA are not allowed in the XML document while fetching the data from XML, this will cause an error in the browser.
To avoid this issue, CDATA section is used.
Here’s the syntax of CDATA:
<!CDATA[ // CDATA CODE ]]>
In this guide I will show you how you can include CDATA in an XML feed attribute tag.
Follow the easy steps to includ CDATA in your XML feed attribute tag:

2. Scroll down to the Feed Configuration section, and here you will find all the attributes as per your selected merchant.
