In addition to creating each product manually in Click & Drop, you can upload multiple products at once via spreadsheet.

To begin, click ‘Products’ on your Click & Drop menu bar, and on the dropdown menu, select ‘Import’ as shown:

You will be presented with the ‘Product Import’ page. From here, you will be able to upload your spreadsheet and map the fields ready for import.

Step 2: Import Settings

 In this section, there are two settings:

Check the ‘The first row is a header’ box if you have headers in your spreadsheet, and you do not wish for that row to be imported.

Please note that if you import a header, this may cause your import to fail.

 

In the ‘Import mode’ drop down box, you have the following options:

‘Create’: The products import will be saved as new products

‘Update’: The products you import will update and overwrite your existing products

‘Create and update’: This option will create new products where the product SKU is not already in your saved products, and will overwrite your existing products where the SKU is the same.

 

Step 3: Field mappings

This section will display the columns in your spreadsheet. The next step is to map the columns to the fields in Click & Drop:

The fields available for mapping are:

Name

SKU

Stock Location

Initial Inventory

Weight in KG (number only)

Price (in pounds sterling, please do not include £ sign)

Domestic package size (letter, large letter, small parcel, medium parcel, or parcel)

International Package Size (letter, large letter, or parcel)

Image URLs

Please note that SKU is the only required field, all the others are optional.

For Image URLs, please include the https:// or http:// in the URL. For multiple URLs, include the vertical bar (|) symbol between each URL. Do not leave spaces.

Example for one image: www.yourcompany.com/images/bluetshirt.jpg

Example for two images: www.yourcompany.com/images/bluetshirt.jpg|www.yourcompany.com/redtshirt.jpg

 

When you have mapped your fields, a green tick will indicate the SKU field has been mapped successfully:

Click the ‘Import Products’ button to finish.

When your product has been imported successfully, you will see the following message:

100-Click-Drop-Product-Import-Complete_0.jpg

When you click ‘Products’ in your Click & Drop menu bar, you will now be presented with your list of products. Clicking an individual product will expand the window to display the product details.

Your new products will be uploaded as shown:

Please note that packaging sizes may differ for domestic and international orders.

The weight limit for international orders is 2kg.

 

What to do if your import has been created with errors:

If your import was created with errors, you will see a warning message: 

80-Click-Drop-Product-Import-Error_0.jpg

Click the text ‘See errors’ and you will be taken to the ‘Product import history’ page that will explain what caused the error:

In our example, the value for ‘Price’ in row 2 of the spreadsheet was not in the correct format.

You would need to correct the values in the spreadsheet and begin the upload process again.
