The following template headers are required in any upload when making a change to the corresponding information. Deleting the header row will make the upload file invalid. Values are required in order for a change to be made and any field left blank will be ignored on import.
When uploading your changes, please make sure that your file is in either .csv or .txt format.
- MAP_PRICE: Amazon only field. Set a MAP price on Amazon to hide your item price, until the item has been added to a customer's cart. To remove a MAP price, a zero must be entered in this column because blank fields are always ignored on import.
- SKU: The SKU you wish to update. With the exception of the "Update Group Inventory" template, this is a required field. Your import will fail if the SKU number is missing.
- MEMO: The memo field allows you to enter any notes about your SKU. If you leave this field blank, the field will be ignored on import and will not overwrite an existing memo with a blank one.
- MARKETPLACE_ID: The marketplace identifier for repricing information. You can find the ID for each marketplace on your marketplace card. This field is required if values are entered in the MIN_PRICE, MAX_PRICE, MAP_PRICE, HANDLING_DAYS, MANAGED, MANUAL_PRICE OR STRATEGY_ID. COST If you are updating this field, your costs should be uploaded in the currency that you purchased the item in.
- CURRENCY: Enter the currency code that corresponds to your item's cost. When a cost is specified, the currency code is required in order for your file to be processed successfully.
- MIN_PRICE: The minimum price you are willing to sell your item for (shipping included). To remove a min price, a zero must be entered in this column because blank fields are always ignored on import. This price should always be entered in the currency the marketplace calls for. i.e. for Amazon US, you would calculate your min/max prices in US dollars.
- MAX_PRICE: The maximum price you are willing to sell an item for (shipping included).To remove a max price a zero must be entered in this column, blank fields are always ignored on import. This price should always be entered in the currency the marketplace calls for. i.e. for Amazon US, you would calculate your min/max prices in US dollars.
- MANUAL_PRICE: Use this field to set manual prices for your listings (shipping included). Entering a value in this field will disable repricing and the manual price will be used instead. If this field is left blank it will be ignored in import. Enter a 0 to delete the manual price and re-enable automatic repricing.
- MANAGED: Indicate whether or not you would like Informed to actively manage this listing. Input a value as follows:1= Managed 0= Unmanaged
- STRATEGY_ID: The ID number of the strategy that you would like to a listing assigned to. The Strategy ID can be found on your strategy card.
- TARGET_VELOCITY: (Sales Velocity Algorithm) Set the target velocity for any SKU. This figure tells our system the number of sales you would like to make over a 30 day period.
