There are two ways to update products on TradeGecko;
- Update a product individually
- Update products in bulk
To update existing products in bulk go to Inventory>> Import New Products.You will see the following screen;
Select if you want to upload an existing spreadsheet into TradeGecko or if you want to download a spreadsheet from TradeGecko to fill up and use that to update your products.
Select the attributes to update. Check the box if you would like to update price lists for your products at the same time. Then select “Build a Product Sheet”.
Once you have filled in the relevant columns, upload the product sheet. If you are unsure of what information is required for the columns refer to the table in the import guide.
Review and Confirm the changes. If you encounter errors when uploading the spreadsheet, refer to this handy guide to resolve them.
Your products and price lists have now been updated.
How to add new variants to a product
If you want to add new variants to a product, add a new row and copy the product ID but leave the variant ID blank.
Now, add 2 columns; Initial Cost Price and Initial Stock Level.
These columns are important because we set your MAC for the new variant based on these columns. If you leave them blank, then the MAC will be set to 0.
Having your MAC set to 0 is a problem when you start receiving orders because you will not be able to calculate your profits. There is no associated costs with the variant.
