When your catalog is ready and avaiable on a http or ftp server or locally in your computer, you then only have to import it into BeezUP.

You will below find instructions to make the 1st importation of your catalog:

1. Go on the tab "Importation".


2. Choose the format of your file: XML or CSV.

For the CSV, we recommend you to indicate the separator used and the coding of the file. Very often, we have the US-ASCII (or ANSI) or UFT8. If your catalog is encoded in ANSI, you have to choose Encoding_Western European (Windows) in the list.
If you have doubts about the coding of your file, please consult the article here.


3. Choose the location of your catalog and complete the required informations:

a) « From your computer » : if your prefer to import your catalog from your computer
b) « FTP » : if your catalogue is on the FTP server, in this case, please note the name of the file.
c) « HTTP/HTTPS » : if your catalog is hosted by a HTTP or HTTPS server, in this case note the full adress where you can find the file, for ex:

We recommend to keep the "Automatic importation" activated if your file is on a server (http or ftp) hosted, so every night the catalog will be updated.

Observation 1 : if you want BeezUP to take your catalog at a a higher frequency and/or at specific times, please contact us through the chat 💬 precising the time you wish.
Observation 2 : if your XML catalog contains undertags or values in the attributes, you can use the advanced options.

Advanced options :

In the import page, you have advanced options tab.

Here the list of what you can find here :

  • Check this box to import the attributes of your XML nodes

This option is going to read the content of the attributes that are inside a tag

🔵 Example of a tag attribute in XML :

<Product titre id = "10222">

Without this option, the information id = "10222" is not going to be read.

  • Check this box to import children nodes of your XML feed

This option is necessary if you want to read the children nodes of your file

🔵 Example:
<Product title id = "10222">

In this example, the attributes Title and Price are children nodes.

  • Check this box if your product feed is under a .zip file

This option must be checked if your import feed is in a compressed file ( .zip)

  • Check this box to import duplicated items

The last option must be checked if your products are duplicated and you wish to import the first appearance. If you don't check this box, none of your duplicate products will be imported.

4. Click on "Start importation" before coming on the page "mapping of the fields".

5. Wait while your catalog is being uplodaded

6. When you are on "Mapping of the fields",please be careful, because here we match the fields of your catalogue with the BeezUP fields:


For every field of your catalog (in the list), it is necessary to choose to which BeezUP field they correspond.
Here above an example of mapping.

If you have doubts on associations to set, you can visualize an example value which is taken from your catalog on the right (in the zone "Example").

7. When the mapping is done, click on "Validate and Import".

8. Wait until your catalog has been successfully downloaded.

9. Your catalog is imported, you can see it on the home page, at the top on the right.

If you have a problem with the importation, do not hesitate to contact us via the Chat 💬 after logging into your BeezUP account.
