Shopsite Product Upload: How To

Shopsite makes it easy to change multiple fields of multiple prooducts at one time, without manually editing product by product. This can be done using an excel spreadsheet. Below is how to properly format your excel spreadsheet for a product upload into shopsite.

Follow these directions:

  1. In the excel spreadsheet make sure these 2 things are correct.
  2. In the price column there has to be 2 numeric values after the decimal. Make sure this column is set to “number” formatting or it will take out the 0 such as 2.30 will become 2.3 and this will cause errors.
  3. After the last column in the spreadsheet type “junk” this must fill the entire column from 1st product listed to the last.
