Best Practices

   
  • Import your entire inventory. Buyers are searching for everything.
  • The first row should be the column name. This makes future imports faster & easier.
  • Use the same file format every time. The import process will recognize the file and apply the right import settings.
  • Comma Separated (CSV) files are recommended, and required with over 25,000 parts.
  • Provide as many fields as you have available
  • Do not combine part number and description. The two fields cannot be separated by the import process
 

Accepted File Formats
