Import Products

How Tos (1)

You can find this section under Data Imports/Exports > Import Products in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

You use this section to import product details in bulk to the IRP. This is one of the most powerful and useful features in IRP as it allows you to import large numbers of products effortlessly. All you need to do is complete a template file and then upload it to the IRP.

NOTE: You should use the Import Products section only for creating new products — not for updating existing products or for maintaining stock level information. If you want to update existing products, use the Bulk Updates section.

Note that some details are required — you need at least ONE of: model, option, price, brand or category name.

When you have completed the straightforward process of configuring the template, you can stage and upload the data with the click of a button.

The DataImportProducts.aspx page appears as follows (note that this shows a staged data file and your screen will look different if you have not yet uploaded a data file):

Import Products

As shown in the screen capture above, there are three tabs:

  • Import Product Data: You use this tab to upload your completed product data file, stage the data and then import it to the IRP.
  • Create Template Import File: You use this tab to set up and download a template file for importing the product data.
  • Images: You use this tab to download images to include with the product data.

If needed, you can use the following buttons at the top of the tab:

  • Brands: Click this to go to the Brands.aspx page.
  • Categories: Click this to go to the Categories.aspx page.
  • Models: Click this to go to the Models.aspx page.

For more details, refer to the How To Import Products article in this section. You will also find the IRP Product Data Guide Strategy Centre article helpful.

For help with troubleshooting product data uploads, refer to the How to Troubleshoot Bulk Updates and Product Data Uploads help topic.
