For those who utilize MarketTime's B2B Website feature, the categories included on Transit-ready files may be of use to you.
NOTE: A prerequisite of the categories on your Transit file being added to your Agency must be met before attempting to import products with their categories. For more information, please see our relevant support article on Managing Item Categories.
You may use the same modified Transit file used to import products if desired. If your products include categories, you may use the corresponding Import Category, SubCategory, and Items button found on the Import & Export screen.
Here you will select that modified Transit file, and map the columns accordingly.
The example below shows products being mapped to a single Category, SubCategory, and SubSubCategory:
NOTE: MarketTime only allows three levels of product categorization.
Continue the import process to associate the items in the file with the mapped category columns from your Transit file.
If your file has products that fall under an additional set of categories, you may repeat this process to map those category columns as well so the products are found in multiple cateogories.
