Importing a file:

  2. Choose a Request Type:
  • Regular Import - Use this option to add/modify/deactivate SKUs in your import file.
  • Pricing Import - Use this option if you are importing a file to set market specific prices.
  • Purge - Use this option to deactivate any listings that currently exist in your Fillz account, but are not in the replacement file you are importing.
  1. Select an Import Format. See table above for descriptions of each option.

  2. Decimal separator in prices - Select the appropriate decimal separator for your prices from the drop down. Example: if your prices are in US Dollars, you should select .(period). If your prices are in Pounds you may need to select ,(comma).
  3. Select other options as required. See below for descriptions of each option.

  4. Click Submit Test if doing a test import or Submit Request if performing a real import.

  5. You'll then be redirected to the Request Status tab to check on the request and view/download the results when completed.
