You can import premium vendor information by importing a CSV file. This article explains each of the required and optional fields that you can include in your CSV file. To generate a CSV file, export your spreadsheet as “.csv” (comma-separated values).
For each record in your CSV file, there must be a value for each of these fields:
Some fields are optional; others, if left blank, will be auto-populated (i.e. SKU will become the Item Title, and Meta Description will be populated with text from the Description field).
Any fields that you include in the CSV file must appear in the exact order given below. Otherwise, your diamond information will not be imported.
Below are the fields for the advanced CSV template. Only fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.
Next to each field name is a value type (in italics). These value types will help you fill out your CSV with the proper information so your site information displays properly.
