As mentioned in a previous video, you can either choose to generate your own template by typing in the product type you wish to sell in the search bar, and clicking the search icon and then selecting which template below that you wish to use or selecting your product classifier in the category listings below.
You would then need to select which mode as discussed previously. And again, we recommend the advanced mode option. Then click the yellow generated template button at the bottom. We again, recommend that you select the relevant product classify instead of the templates generated from your product search.
As these files tend to have a far more inclusive range of categories and classes for your products. Remember that should you wish to list your products in multiple categories. You would need to download and complete each individual category template and upload them each individually as well the category. Remember to also consult your style guides and any approvals required for the category specific templates you wish to use before and during competing the relevant fields in the template.
You can also choose to download your category specific template by going to the inventory files header at the bottom of the page. Clicking on the category specific inventory files alongside the product creation and matching file type.
Then in the popup windows. Scroll down to choose a file template. Click on templates for specific categories, and select your file template for the relevant category in order to downloaded. Upon opening this file, you will see the following worksheet tabs, instructions, images, example, data definitions, template, and valid values.
As discussed before, you would need to familiarize yourself with the instructions and data definitions and refer to the example when filling out the template itself. We strongly recommend that you complete as many fields in this template as possible. Your template is broken down to the following sections, the product information, images, variation, basic, discovery, product enrichment, dimensions, fulfillment, which is again important that you select the default for merchant fulfilled.
Compliance, and offer. Once you have completed as much information as possible, save your file and then go back to the ad products via upload page. Click on the check and upload your inventory file tab.
And proceed to either upload your inventory file for a check first as explained in the previous video, or skip straight to step two and upload your inventory file. Note again that any errors that need to be fixed will be mentioned in the monitor upload status page so that you will know which fields to amend.
