Did you know that you can export and upload your DC spreadsheet and /or images for importing back into your Product Database from your own DC account? Then you can track that update and you will be notified upon the completion of the product update.
Export your data: You can export your Product, Option and Choice data from your DC products. Most Suppliers only need to export their Products data though for pricing update purposes.
Go to Products Tab > Product Data Export > Excel Data Export
Once you click on Export, you will have the opportunity to export certain fields and criteria. Then “Submit” the file and you will receive an email with a link to download it for editing.
Upload your File: After you have edited your file and saved your changes, you can then upload it again for importing.
You can upload it under Shortcuts on the right side of the home page.
Once the file is uploaded, you can then track the upload and you will receive an email when we complete it.
