The RentMy bulk import tool makes it easy to add dozens or thousands of products easy and quick. This article will help you through the process.
The RentMy inventory import tool makes it easy to add hundreds or thousands of products to your account.
Click on the Settings menu and then choose the Locations link. Name the default location anything you like. Use this name in the Locations column of the import file in Step 2.
If you plan to group your products into categories, before using the import file, create your categories by visiting the Settings > Categories link. When each category is created, a unique numeric ID is assigned.
Use this number in your import sheet. You can add multiple IDs to each product (in the event you want to add a product to more than one category).
