Method 1: Choose a Date Range & import products.

Method 2: Import products by comma-separated product IDs (no spaces)

Method 3:- Import products by product handle.

Once items have been imported, you can view the products in the Product Listing section of their respective panel.

Final Notes

ONCE YOUR PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN IMPORTED, YOU MUST SELECT THE COLLECTION AND SHIPPING METHOD FOR EACH PRODUCT.  Since we use our own Collections for sorting purposes, these cannot be synced.

**If a Shipping Method is not selected, the customer will get an error message at checkout and will not be able to complete their purchase.

Automatically synced products will need to be approved by Made By Her Staff, but don’t worry, we receive an email as soon as products have been imported and we will review them right away.
