Learn how you can add your new products and product data through our CSV spreadsheet templates.
Sellbrite has the ability to add in your products and product information in bulk, through the use of CSV spreadsheet templates. These spreadsheets are also called CSV files, because the format of the file is CSV (Comma Separated Values) when you save it.
Here are some simple steps to guide you through that process:
1. Obtain a template of the Product CSV from Sellbrite.
Click Settings > Import Data > Products - CSV File
Find the link to download a blank template.
The template will include 2 sample products to help you visually see how to format your products.
Row 4 = a single product (meaning a product without any variations).
Row 5 = a product with variations (also known as the parent product).
Row 6-11 = variations of the parent product from row 5.
IMPORTANT: Do not edit or remove the first 3 rows of the file!
2. Fill out the spreadsheet
Note: When adding a product in Sellbrite, you are required to enter a SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) and a Product Name. Sellbrite only accepts letters, numbers, hyphens, spaces, and underscores in SKUs.
The table below provides an explanation of each column and a sample value.
