- Log in to your Bezzu Retailer Backend and navigate to the Products Tab.

- Download the CSV Template. Fill out each of the columns, with one product per row. Each column within the CSV file corresponds directly to a field in the product creation screen. Read on to learn more about each column.
Brand: The product brand name is simply the brand name of the product. This will be the foremost detail of the product listing and one of the first things your customers will notice
Status: You can choose to set your product as available or sold. Available means the product is ready to sell on Bezzu and actively listed on the marketplace and your profile.
Price: The price of your product. You'll need to make adjustments to your product price accordingly.
Section_id: The section a product belongs to, this can either be men's, women's, children's or homeware. You'll need to assign your product to the correct category to ensure your items appear in the correct place when customers are searching for items.
Category_id: The product category is the type of product available in each section. You can select the relevant category from the drop-down list. It's important that the category you choose matches your product. Customers will search for products based on the category so accurate listings will sell more.
Subcategory_id: Similar to the product category, the sub-category is simply a specification of the initial category. This is to offer the customer greater choice when searching for products. Again, accuracy is key here.
Style_type_id: The product style offers further clarification of the product to the customer based on the design style of the product itself. For example, a trouser style could be straight or slim. This field is essential for your products to appear correctly in looks created through the Virtual Stylist (new feature coming soon!).
Description: Your product description offers a summary of your product's features. This is a vitally important element of the sales process. It's best to think of your product description as your in-store sales pitch. You can check out our Bezzu guide to writing compelling descriptions for more information.
Size_and_fit: The size and fit section offers you the opportunity to express the more intricate details of a product's fit. Perhaps it fits a little small and requires shoppers to purchase a size up.
Details_and_care: The details and care section outlines the necessary steps a customer should take to ensure their garment is cared for appropriately. You'll generally find these details on the product label.
Shipping_weight: This is simply the weight of your product. This can be used to determine the cost of shipping each product
Listing_color_id: This is where you can select the colour of your product. You'll need to use your best judgement here as product colours can be somewhat ambiguous. We've done our best to make the colour selection process as easy as possible by offering a range that's not too specific or too broad. Customers will search for products based on colour so it's important to get this field right
Product_code: SKU Or Stock Keeping Unit, in the field of inventory management, refers to a specific item stored to a specific location. If you have one for your products already, here is where you can enter that information. If not, our system will automatically assign an SKU to each product left blank.
listing_listing_variants_attributes_0_listing_size_id_(0 to 3): There are 3 size_id columns, numbered 0 to 3. Each one accounts for a separate size. For example size_id 0 would be S, size_id 1 would be M, size_id 2 would be L and so on. These columns can be used to select any size between XS to XXL. If you have more than 3 size options for your product, you can edit the listing to add additional sizes after you have uploaded the file.
listing_listing_variants_attributes_0_quantity_(0 to 3): The quantity columns correlate directly to the size_id columns outlined above. Quantity_0 is the number of size_id 0 that you have in stock, quantity_1 is the number of size_id 1 that you have in stock and so on.
Product Image & Video columns: These columns can be used to add image and video URLs to if available. To do so, your image(s) will need to be online already and hosted on an image/file storage/sharing site. If you do have access to such images, simply copy and paste the URL into the corresponding image column (1 URL per column for a total of 4). If you wish to. Upload the images after the product upload, that's fine. Simply leave the image/video columns empty.
