Uploading Your Spreadsheet

To upload through the Excel Add-In Tool:

We recommend including the WooCommerce Product Attributes with your other Product level fields. That way you can populate them when you create your products. The attached template is set up this way.

To upload the WooCommerce tab of the file using our Excel Add-In Tool, click the Upload Data button. Check only the Update Marketplace box.



To upload through the web uploader:

Go to the Products menu -> Import Products and Inventory. Check only the Import Marketplace box. Select MyStore from the Select marketplace drop-down.


If you include the WooCommerce Product Attributes, or any other Product Level fields, with your WooCommerce data, you will need to check both Product and Marketplace during the upload.

NOTE: Our listing service runs on a cycle. It may take up to 10 minutes for us to submit your automated items to WooCommerce.
