Whilst we recommend setting up an automated upload via FTP or HTTP (scripts available here), in certain situations it might be necessary to manually upload stock to NearSt.
In these cases, you will need:
The unique NearSt Upload Key (FTP password) for each of your store locations
An FTP client application, like FileZilla
Connect to the server
In your FTP client, connect to the FTP server using the following details:
Password: your store's Upload Key
Uploading stock files
Upload your stock as a CSV file (named stock.csv, or any other name that isn't products.csv).
The CSV file should have the following headers:
In your FTP client, simply drag this file into the remote FTP directory to upload the file. It will be automatically processed.
Checking your stock upload
In your MyShop dashboard, under the section Inventory, you will be able able to see the status of your last stock upload.
