Bulk upload Products onto your website
You can bulk upload new products and edit existing products onto your website using our CSV bulk Upload feature. You need to navigate to WordPress > Products > Toolbox
Please note that you If you want to compare prices from multiple stores/vendors for the same product, then you will have to create multiple rows for the same product. For example if Product XYZ has offers from both Amazon and Ebay then, this product will have 2 rows for the prices from Amazon and Ebay in the CSV file one below the other.
