Checkpoint: Make sure you have created the shop and previewed it externally in ShopFactory. And then close ShopFactory.

Required field: Item Number which is known as Catalog Number in ShopFactory. Product Name (known as Name in ShopFactory) is not a required field if you are using ShopFactory V10.24 Build 15148 or higher.

Let's start with a simple example -

I want to sell two types of Products in my Shop. I sell Flowers and Chocolates and want them to appear in two different Departments / pages.

So I would set up my spreadsheet like this.

Now this is one way to give your loved  one the royal treatment. 12 long stemmed Roses in a presentation box . with this bunch, they are going to be impressed!

This is how Import Wizard mapping will look

  

So once I have imported the products from my spreadsheet into my project, ShopFactory will show my products like this:

Note: The path name for your pictures needs to be the whole path name or it won't import correctly - for example,
