A manufacturer is the company that produces your products. In some cases, manufacturers are required by channels for your listings. Sellercloud can communicate this information. In this article, you will learn how to create and manage manufacturers in Sellercloud.
- Go to Settings > Companies > Manage Companies > Select a company.
- Click on Toolbox > Manufacturers > Add.
- Add the information required > Save your changes.
You can add manufacturers in bulk via a file import.
- Go to Settings > Companies > Manage Companies > Select a Company.
- Click on Toolbox > Manufacturers > Import.
- From here you can import and merge manufacturers. Download the template, populate it, and import it again.
- You can also update products with a manufacturer using the Import Product Manufacturer template. If the manufacturer does not exist, it will be created.
View and Edit Manufactures

Assign Manufacturers to SKUs
You can assign manufacturers manually or in bulk.
