Use a CSV file to publish products on eBay, Shopify, Etsy, Storenvy, Amazon, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, Pinterest, Tumblr

You can publish on multiple channels from any e-commerce tool, accounting system, or ERP that allows .CSV product export. Start by importing your products in Nembol using an easy .csv file.

Once your products are in Nembol, you can easily and quickly publish them on any or all of: Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Storenvy, Shopify, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr.

Import via .csv is extremely useful if:

  1. The software in which you manage your products is not one of those directly connected by Nembol (i.e. eBay, WooCommerce, PrestaShop, Shopify, Etsy)

  2. You prefer using a tool like Excel or Numbers to massively edit your products before uploading them say on eBay, Amazon, Etsy, Shopify, or any of the other channels.

Import via .csv, and Nembol in general, may be very useful to migrate across e-commerce tools.

Below the full explanation, also refer to this useful troubleshooting article in our blog.

How can I use a .csv file to publish for example on eBay or to migrate from say Shopify to WooCommerce or else?

  1. Login to your Nembol account on app.nembol.com or create a new account if you are a new user (there’s a free trial for up to 14 days)

  2. Click on the blue button “Import CSV” (image 1)

  3. Download the .csv file template (image 2)

  4. Open the .csv file template with Excel or with Numbers is you’re on a Mac

  5. Fill it up with all information you want to add regarding your products (bear in mind that you can later edit each product in Nembol, but only one product by one. You can edit products from Nembol also after they’ve been published)

  6. If your system (e.g. Magento) has an “Export for Facebook Catalog” function, you can use it to export a file ready to be imported inside Nembol

  7. Save your .csv file on your PC

  8. Note that Nembol requires ; as a separator. Both Excel and Numbers hide the separator to your view, and receive it from your computer settings (which can be set to use , or ;) . So double check that you have ; by opening your file with Text edit or another basic text editor. If you have , just search/substitute with ;

  9. Click “Choose file” in Nembol (image 2), select your file on your PC and click “Start import”

  10. In case some of your products generated an import error, Nembol will inform you and give you an error log file to make it easy for you to correct and resubmit (image 3)

  11. Once done, refresh the Products section in Nembol

  12. Select the products you wish to publish on (for example) eBay

  13. Log into eBay in Nembol using your eBay login and password

  14. Click “Publish” in Nembol.

You can right away or later select more channels in Nembol and publish again on any of them.
