Adding Your Products to Solid Commerce
If the SKUs you're importing from Newegg already exist in your Solid Commerce account, you can skip to the Importing Your Listings From Newegg section below.
If the SKUs you're importing haven't been added to Solid Commerce yet, you will need to add them as part of the import process.
1) Open the Excel template you usually use to add new products to Solid Commerce.
- You can also use the Products & Inventory tab of the template attached this article. If you need to customize our template, see Creating and Customizing a Solid Commerce Excel Template.
2) Copy the Seller Part #s from your Newegg export. Paste them in the product custom sku and warehouse id columns in your Solid Commerce file.
3) If you provided MSRPs to Newegg, you can copy them from your Newegg export. Paste the MSRPs in the msrp column of your Solid Commerce file.
- This is an optional field in Solid Commerce. If you have not provided your MSRPs to Newegg, you do not have to populate this field.
4) Copy the Inventory from your Newegg export. Paste the quantities in the qty column of your Solid Commerce file.
5) product name is a required field.
- The product name can be edited later. Some people simply paste their SKUs in it.
6) Enter the name of your Solid Commerce Warehouse in the warehouse name column.
7) Populate any of the optional fields you would like to add to Solid Commerce, such as the upc, image file, or custom product attributes.

Importing Your Listings From Newegg
1) Download the Newegg.com Importing Listing Template.xlsx file attached to this article and open it in Excel.

|Newegg Field||Corresponding Solid Commerce Field|
|Seller Part #s||product custom sku|
|Seller Part #s||warehouse id|
|NE Item #||newegg item number|
|Selling Price||newegg price exp|
3) Fill in the following Solid Commerce specific fields:
|Solid Commerce Field||Field Description|

4) Set the automation using the run newegg column:
|Solid Commerce Field
Enter No to import your listings with the automation turned off. Enter Yes to import with the automation turned on.
Solid Commerce will automatically sync with your listings when the automation is on.
