Importing an Inventory List

Use Business Manager to import your inventory lists, and structure your data according to the Inventory.xsd schema.
  1. Select site > Merchant Tools > Product and Catalogs > Import & Export > Upload.
  2. Select an XML file on your local computer and click Upload.
  3. Navigate to Import Inventory Lists, select your uploaded file and click Next (the file is validated).
  4. Click Next, select the import mode you want to use for importing (to create the inventory list select Merge) and click Apply. The mode options for importing are:
    • Merge: Updates existing database objects and creates new objects based on the XML file.
    • Update: Updates existing database objects only (it doesn't create new objects based on the XML file).
    • Replace: Deletes and recreates existing database objects and creates new objects based on the XML file.
    • Delete: Deletes all database objects contained in the XML file.
  5. Assign an inventory list to a storefront site (if this was not done already by the initial Site Import).
  6. Select site > Merchant Tools > Product and Catalogs > Inventory Lists.
  7. Click Edit for an inventory list.
  8. Select the Site Assignments tab.
  9. Check the box of the site to which you want to assign the inventory list (only one list can be assigned to a site at a time).
