How do I import Manufacturers via CSV?

This article will give you a step-by-step process on how to import your manufacturer information.

Import Manufacturers

To import your Manufacturers, you will first need a copy of the appropriate sample.csv file. Log into your 3dcart online Store Manager and use the left hand navigation menu to:

  1. Go to Products ->Product List
  2. Once there look towards the top right of the page and click on the “Export/Import” button

The Export/Import page will list a series of Export options on the left and Import functions on the right. Look towards the right hand side of the page (Import), and click on the +Icon next to the “Manufacturers” option.

  1. Click the link that says “Sample File” and download the sample file.

This action will download a CSV file named manufacturers.csv to your computer. Here’s an example of what the spreadsheet will look like.

You may now add information to the proper columns Below is a brief description of each field:

  • id
    This is the unique ID assigned to the manufacturer by the 3dCart system. If this is a fresh import, you will leave this column blank.
  • manufacturer
    This is the name of the Manufacturer the product is associated with.
  • logo
    This is the path to the image file for the logo of the manufacturer. Example:
    assets/images/logo.jpg
  • sorting
    This will determine the sorting order of the Manufacturer list. Lower numbers
    will display before higher numbers. Put 0 if you do not have a sorting preference.
  • header
    This is the content that will display above the main body or content of the page
    for the manufacturer.
  • website
    This is the URL of the manufacturer’s website. This will display on the manufacturer page – the customer can click on the website link to direct them to the manufacturer’s website. Example: www.3dcart.com
