The requirements and the help file for how to use the bulk lister is located in your admin. Just click on the link Bulk List/eBay import then click on the link Requirements and Help. The help file is very detailed showing exactly how the file should be created. You do need to have your photos must have an internet link to their location (not on your computer) and they can't be located on a dropshipper's website.

If you don't know how to create a spreadsheet that can be saved as a tab-delimited file, you probably need to find someone local to you who can teach you the basics of creating the tab-delimited file.

ALSO, please don't start multiple topics with the same question!

Many of us never used the bulk upload file at all. I'm not sure what you are trying to say about the 'video list on the product', but I am pretty certain there are no videos on how to do these uploads. Most stores that people used a bulk upload to fill up their store, forget to go back and tweak each and every listing and make sure it is formatted correctly. An eBay upload ends up being one solid paragraph, single-spaced, with reference to eBay, auctions, etc. which all need to be cleaned up. I have listed each and every listing I have manually and I am not talking about 100 items. In my first year here, I listed over 5000 items manually and try to maintain about 8000 active listings at all times. It is doable and the listing looks much better and I was able to use my photos that are on my computer as well. As you list each item, it goes live instead of waiting for your upload to be approved and then be showing and then you have to manually fix 1000 listings.

As far as I know, the bulk upload is only for items coming from eBay. I don't know if they take an excel file without it being from ebay, but then as I said I have never done one.

No, eCrater has two (2) different uploads. You can import your eBay listings and you can upload a tab-delimited file.

You have already imported your eBay listings. You need to make sure your all your listings can be legally sold in the USA. If the produce contains medicines that require a doctor's perscription in the USA, you can not sell them on eCRATER.

If you have additional products you want to add to your store, you can create a spreadsheet (excel if you wish) and save it in a tab-delimited file. That file can then be uploaded to eCRATER.

Note: You CAN NOT use the eBay importer or the bulk lister to update products already listed in your store. You must maintain your store manually by deleting products that have been sold on other sites.

I noticed on your ebay imported items that you may have left the quantity blank so all your items show you have more than 10 available. If this is correct, good. If this is not correct, you need to correct the item quantity on each item.

Thank you for clarifying the two ways to upload. I will try to put that in my hard drive! Laughing

Bestpins, It would probably be better to start your own topic than jump onto an old one.

The instructions are pretty clear. They provide the list of headings that go at the top of each column of a spreadsheet. When you save the file, be sure to save it as a .TXT tab-delimited file using UTF-8. Here's the list of headings they provide (scroll to the end of section II to see the table of entry format requirements):

II. Bulk File Structure

You must prepare tab-delimited text file and save it using UTF-8 encoding. Each row of this file represents one product. Be careful not to include line breaks!

- title
- description
- local_cat_id (on the instructions page, they provide a link that will give you a list of all your custom categories with their ID numbers)
- global_cat_id (a list of these is also provided via its link)
- image_url
- price
- weight
- taxable
- condition
- quantity
- shipping_us48
- shipping_alaska
- shipping_hawaii
- shipping_canada

I corrected what I said above about the file type to save it as. It would seem eCrater only wants a text file, so you would have to save it as a .TXT tab-delimited file using UTF-8 coding (on the latest version of Excel, in the file type list, it appears as "Text (tab-delimited)").

Ha! I was wondering why you said that, but I just noticed this thread was started back in March by someone else. Oh well, question answered. LOL
