Import Shadows

Updated 6 months ago

You can easily bulk-import Shadow Products using the Import Product Shadows Template file. 

You can also use this template to unshadow products in bulk! Use the Action column described below.
  1. Go to Inventory > Manage Inventory > Import Product Info > Import Product Shadows.
  2. Download the shadow template in the desired format (TAB Delimited, CSV, or Excel). Open sample Excel template.

  3. Paste the product information into the file columns as follows:
    • Parent SKU - Enter the main SKU of the product.

    • Shadow SKU - Enter the alternate SKU (e.g., for another ASIN, or for a product from another company). Existing Product IDs in your catalog entered under this column will be linked to parents as shadow. Product IDs that do not exist in your catalog will be created and link to the defined parent as a shadow.

    • Company ID (optional) - Enter the company the shadow is associated with. You do not need to select the company associated with the shadow from the Company dropdown.

    • Fulfilled By (optional) - Enter either Amazon or Merchant

    • Action (optional) - To bulk-unshadow products, enter this exact text for every product to unshadow: _REMOVE_SHADOW_
      This action will unlink a shadow sku from a shadow parent.

  4. Save your populated file > Choose File > Import Shadows.
