To create listings or update inventory and price on your channels, you will need to first import your product catalog into GoDataFeed. If you are looking to use one file to do this then Manual Upload may be the best option for you. 

Our system accepts the following file formats: GoDataFeedXML, Google XML, Comma-delimited (.csv), Tab-delimited (.txt), Zip (accepted format compressed in .zip folder), Gzip (accepted format compressed in .gzip folder), Semicolon-Delimited (.csv), Generic XML, or JSON (.json). We have additional details regarding Data Feed Source File Specification



To select a file press the following button and choose which file you want to upload:



Once the file is chosen, press the “Upload File” button to upload the file selected:




Once the file is uploaded you will notice that the “File Name” field will now automatically have the name of your file which was just uploaded: 



You are now ready to import your products! You can click Import on the upper far left. 



Generic XML and JSON

This new import source type offers two additional file formats that were previously not supported which are JSON and Generic XML.

Our system previously only accepted two schemas of XML and those were Google and GoDataFeed XML, however, now we accept all types of XML schemas.


To use these two file formats there is an additional step:



The new row indexer is the name of the field that indicates a new row in your data. Our 4 default values are {id, sku, uniqueid, and productcode}. 

If your data does not use any of these, please fill out the new row indexer, else you can leave it blank.


Finally, our system uses GoDataFeed and Google as the default schema for XML, if you want our system to handle your XML as generic then please select it under the drop-down:
