  4. Click Export Template to download a sample .csv file with the necessary headers.

Importing Product Price Attributes Data

Example of a product price attributes data import template

Product SKU Price Attribute Unit Code Currency Price
sku_001 MSRP/MAP item USD 20

To import a bulk of product price attributes:

  1. In the main menu, navigate to Products > Products. The product list opens.

  2. Click Import File on the top right.

  3. In the Import dialog, select the Price Attributes Data tab.

  4. Click Choose File and select the .csv file you prepared.

  5. Click Export Template to download a sample .csv file with the necessary headers.

  6. Prepare data for import: Based on the downloaded file, create your bulk information in the .csv format. Once your file is ready, click Choose File and select the prepared comma-separated values (.csv) file.

  7. Select the strategy for uploading the file:

    • Add and Replace strategy overrides the existing price attribute data (MAP/MSRP/etc) with the one mentioned in the file for the corresponding product item. Also, it adds the price attribute data to the products with the empty values.

    • Reset and Add strategy removes the existing price attribute values for all the products (regardless of the currency) if the price attribute is listed in the file. For example, if an MSRP value is provided for a Product A, all the MSRP values in all the currencies are removed for all the products. If MAP is not mentioned it the file, the MAP values remain intact.

      As an illustration, let us fill the table with the following information:

      Product SKU Price Attribute Unit Code Currency Price
      TAG1 MSRP item USD 20

      Originally, the TAG1 item as well as all other items on the Product page have some MSRP attribute price.

      Once we imported the .csv file, all the MSRP attribute prices were deleted, and the TAG1 item acquired a new MSRP price of 20 USD instead of the previous 7 USD.

  8. Validate import results: Click Validate to check your import results. If there are any Records with errors, fix them in the .csv file before starting the import.

  9. Launch import: After successful validation, click Import File.

  10. Click Cancel to decline the import.
