Product List Mass Upload Tool

The Product List Mass Upload Tool is a great new feature. It allows you to upload a full-preformatted product list. This feature will be more beneficial to you if you have a very large product list.

We will be using a tab-delimited format text file, because it is one of the most universal format.

Since there are so many formats it would be impossible to walk you through every single format. Please follow the steps below.

Here is a step-by-step procedure on how to use the Product List Mass Upload Tool.

Step 2: Click the "Add a new category" button to create a new category for the products you will be uploading.

Note: If you already have a category to upload products into you may bypass steps 2 & 3.
