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:


Note
Do not remove, add, or edit any columns to this file. If you do not have a need for a column please leave it blank. This is the exact format the file needs to be to import your Manufacturer information properly.

  • 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.

Tip
The list of Manufacturers can be located in the 3dcart Online Store Manager by going to Settings =>General =>Manufacturers.

Any new manufacturers entered in the CSV file will be automatically created in the system.

  • 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
