The inventory import mapping tool enables you to map a file that contains inventory quantities of products. The mapping allows you to import excel files that are not formatted with the format of a SellerCloud inventory file.
Using the mapping tool, you can update the following product attributes:
- Physical Inventory Qty
- Vendor SKU
- Site Cost
Please Note: By default, the inventory import works with inventory ranges . That means the exact inventory will not be that on the product. Rather it will set the inventory to the lowest value withing the range. For example - one range is 10 - 20. If the product's inventory on the file is 17, the quantity will be set to 10. If you would like to update exact quantity see setting below in step 8.
