Only products with all Required attributes filled will be created.
  • The second sheet "Full Example" shows some examples of correct data input. in a sheet containing all headers.
  • Other sheets such as "Electronics" or "Decoration" contain only the attributes applicable to those categories. If you can provide only provide a subset of those attributes, you may delete empty columns. However, if mandatory attributes are missing, products will not get created.
  • When the template is filled with product data, seller can upload it in Carrefour Marketplace back office from the seller account: My Inventory -> Import from File
  • Then, Select the file -> File content : Offers and products -> Import mode : Normal

 

3) Add mass product export synchronised with a product database.

Caution: this method requires custom developments in order to connect the product database to Carrefour Marketplace database, If you are new to web services and APIs and/or your developers are not familiar with those methods, CSV might be the best way to get the inventory created at first.
