Create New Listings

Once your csv file is ready to import, navigate to listing library, choose the Import button and click Browse to select your file.  Select upload and then start import.

When the import completes, select the listings and click the Next button.




On the next page, select your listing, shipping, payment, and return profiles for each listing or create new profiles using the + button. 

If the listings will share the same profiles, select the four profiles for the first listing, then use the blue arrow button to apply to all products.

Then select Import Products.



Once the import completes, you will find your listings in ready status within your inkFrog library.


Editing Listings

When editing existing listings, the sku numbers must remain unchanged and images may not be edited through the csv file.

We recommend exporting the csv file from the inkFrog library.

Make your revisions within the exported file and save.

Then access listings > library and select the import button and choose from csv.



Select Browse

Choose your file

Then select Upload

Next, select Start Import



On the following page, you'll be presented with the products available.



Select the check boxes for the products you would like to edit, then select the Next button.


On the following page, you will notice the map existing tab is selected, this indicates that the product is mapping to an existing eBay listing for editing.


Should you see that a map existing tab is not automatically selected, if you continue the import, it will create a new listing rather than edit an existing listing.

If you know that a matching eBay listing exists in inkFrog, select the map existing tab, then select the matching eBay listing from the pop-up.

You may also change which listing is mapped by selecting the edit (pencil) button.



Then, select Import Products which will complete the editing of the eBay listings.
