If you have not found a supplier on our Marketplace who can meet your expectations or your partner is just not listed here, you can use a Datafeed file easily to create your products to upload them into your store.

Please note, that this feature is available only for Shopify, ShopRenter and Jumpseller stores.

To set up your import task and start uploading the products to your store, follow the steps below:

Creating the task and adding the file

  1. Go to the Product Upload menu of the DataFeed Manager

  2. Click to Add New Import Task

    1. Name the task and choose the store you wish to import products to

    2. You will be directed to the first page - the Mapping

  3. Click on the + sign to choose the connection type you will use

    1. Supported file sources: URL, (S)FTP, Google Docs URL, Google Drive URL, OneDrive URL, Dropbox URL, file upload.

    2. If you have an API or SOAP connection, contact our support staff, you will not be able to select that connection type there

  4. Add the file in the Source file section

    1. In some cases, authentication is required to access the file; in this case, enter your Username and Password

    2. If you choose the File upload option, you will need to select the file type as well

      1. Depending on the type, you will have different setting options here

      2. Supported file formats: CSV, XML, XLS(X), JSON

    3. If the product details are provided by the supplier in separate files (such as price and stock in different feeds) you can add more files following the same steps. Please, keep in mind:

      1. The files have to be from the same supplier

      2. The connection type has to be the same for every single file

      3. File type can be different

      4. Syncee ID has to be the same value in every file

  5. Click on Upload

  6. Click on Save

    1. The fields from the file will be displayed now on the right side of the Mapping page

Completing the Mapping

  1. On the Mapping page, you need to drag and drop the fields from the right to their respective fields on the left. This way you tell Syncee which value in the file should be used for the Title or Prices for example

    1. Product ID, Title and Price are mandatory fields

    2. Please note that the “Filterable fields” is not uploaded to your store. It is for filtering purposes only in Syncee in the next step. You could map any field here to use the values for filtering. Eg:. “To import” and “Do not import”

  2. Once done with the mapping, click on Save and next

    1. You will be directed to the Filter page

Setting up Filters

  1. On the Filter page you can choose which products you wish to keep (or exclude) for importing

    1. Click on Add group and the + sign to start adding a filtering rule

    2. Different filtering conditions are available - SKU or product ID to add filter specific products, categories or vendor filter for adding products in bulk etc.

    3. More on setting up the filter HERE

  2. Once finished, click on Save and next

Setting up Collections

  1. On the Category page you can assign your store collections to the supplier's product categories

    1. Please note that in case of Shopify, only your Manual Collections can be mapped, the automated ones will not appear

    2. Check the steps of this process HERE

  2. Once ready, click on Save and next

  2. On the Summary page you can check the exact number of the products in the file and the number of those products you have kept by filtering

    1. You have the option to set if you wish to receive an e-mail notification and a report when the task is done

    2. Click on Finish when you are ready, you will be redirected to Product Upload page

  3. Click on Run to start the product upload
