What you'll learn
- How to upload items into MarketTime in bulk via Excel sheet.
Importing Items via Excel sheet
Begin by clicking on the Items button on the left side of the screen, and click the Import/Export option.
To import new products, click the Import Items button in the Import section of the screen:
Choose the File
Here you will choose to browse for your Excel file with product data in it, by clicking the Choose button and searching your computer for the desired product file.
Map Data Columns
Once selected, you will need to match the columns within the Excel sheet with what MarketTime will expect those columns to contain, to ensure the data imports correctly.
Do this by using the drop-down menus by the items with the red X next to them, which notates that they were not automatically matched.
Any columns left unmatched will not be imported
To match a column, click the drop-down button and match your column with the expected column. You can also search for the field name in the search bar:
Now that all the data has been properly matched, and all columns have check-marks next to them, click the Next button to move to the next step!
The next screen allows you to view your data to ensure it’s correct, and make any last-minute alterations if need.
If the data is correct, click the Next button to progress to the next step!
On the final screen, is where you have a few additional options.
If this is your first item import in MarketTime, it does not matter which option you choose, but for future imports, it's important to know that if you choose the REPLACE option, it will completely replace what's currently in MarketTime while importing, and can not be undone.
Select any desired options, and click the Import Items button, and the process will begin.
If there are any errors during the process, you will be notified, and be given the ability to view the error file.
Once the process has successfully completed, you will be taken to your product list, on the View Items tab.
