Adding New Products via CSV

< Back

 

Once you have completed your initial upload of your catalog you do not want to maintain things with a large CSV file, doing so can cause several hour delays before products appear in your Products page.

Instead you’ll upload a CSV file that contains only the new items.  You will need to upload a file using the required CSV format, you can download our Sample CSV file if you need to.

If you have a larger CSV or Excel file that you mange you can simple copy out the new items and create a smaller file.

 

 

Once you have the CSV file ready with the new products, the process to upload is the same,  go to the Import/Export page by clicking the Import or Export button while on the Product page.

 

The lower half of the Import/Export page is for importing your products.  By using a properly formated CSV file you can upload new products, or update existing products in your Sellware product database.

All you need to do is click Choose File, and find your CSV file, select your shop from the dropdown then click Upload and Import CSV File to process the file.

 

 

Once you have submitted the file for processing you will see a confirmation in a blue box at the top of your screen.

The process may take several minutes to complete, but you will see the Products added or updated on the Product screen while in progress.  You can also refresh the Import/Export page and it will show you when it has been completed.

 

Note: You should only do a full export once.  Afterwards you can add and update products by uploading smaller CSV files with the changes.
