If you've read our help article about Creating New Products, you know that you can add new products to your Farmbrite Market through the Products Homepage. However, we know that you if sell a lot of products, it might be time consuming to enter them individually. That's why we provide you with the ability to import your product information from a spreadsheet. This might also come in handy if you are migrating your store from a different system, or already have your products tracked in a spreadsheet.
Before getting started, we suggest you read our Guide to Importing Data.
Navigate to the Products page, and click the actions menu (3 dots) next to the New Product button. In the next step, you'll have the option to download a CSV Template file; we suggest you download and use this as a starting point for your import as it contains all the fields/columns you will need. Open this with your preferred spreadsheet program like Excel or Google Sheets.

After adding your product details to the spreadsheet. Be sure to save it as a CSV file type. Once saved, you can upload it to Farmbrite. IN this step, you'll also select if you are adding new products, or updating existing products.
The system will ask you to map the columns on your spreadsheet to the standard Farmbrite fields; as long as you used the template file, you won't have to make any changes here. Just choose to import the sheet, and you'll see a summary page with your products added, or any error messages.
