This article will give you a step-by-step process to import your manufacturer information.
To import your Manufacturers, you will first need a copy of the appropriate sample.csv file. Log into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager and use the left navigation menu to:
Go to Products > Product List.
Once there, look towards the top right of the page and click on the Export/Import button.
The Export/Import page will list a series of Export options on the left and Import functions on the right. Look towards the right side of the page (Import), and click on the + icon next to the "Manufacturers" option.
3. Click the link that says "Sample File" and download the sample file.
This action will download a CSV file named manufacturers.csv to your computer. See the image for an example of what the spreadsheet will look like.
You may now add information to the proper columns. Below is a brief description of each field:
This is the unique ID assigned to the manufacturer by the Shift4Shop system. If this is a fresh import, you will leave this column blank.
This is the name of the Manufacturer the product is associated with.
This is the path to the image file for the logo of the manufacturer. Example:
This will determine the sorting order of the Manufacturer list. Lower numbers
will display before higher numbers. Put 0 if you do not have a sorting preference.
This is the content that will display above the main body or content of the page
for the manufacturer.
This is the URL of the manufacturer's website. This will display on the manufacturer page – the customer can click on the website link to direct them to the manufacturer's website. Example: www.shift4shop.com
Once you have filled in your information, save the edited CSV file on your computer.
