Import Product Information

Overview

Sellercloud allows you to import products and product information in bulk so you can easily manage your products. From the Import Product Info page, you can import products, product specifics (like general information, images, and channel attributes), and product relationships (like kits, shadows, variations).

Usually, basic product information, such as product descriptions, prices, dimensions, and UPCs, should be updated using the Bulk Update tool. For any other product specifications, such as channel attributes, product shadows, or kits, you should use the appropriate Import option.
