Mercamadrid Online now has a way to upload a new catalog or multiple modifications to your existing catalog at once.
Go to YOUR CATALOG page, on the top right corner of the screen you will find an “Export Catalog” button . If you already have uploaded products to the platform, you will get an export of your current catalog (with an option to include images).

Once you are done including or modifying the information from your catalog, click on “Import data to your catalog” button .
Choose the file you want to upload. The file formats supported are CSV and XSLX, and zip (if you are uploading a folder with the catalog information and images).
*Please note that the zip file should have the following structure: a CSV or XSLX file containing the catalog information and a set of folders (one per product reference) named by the product reference, containing the images you would like to upload per product.
Once the file has been processed, you will see a preview of the number of products and images detected by the system. You have the option to upload all these products as out of stock by ticking the checkbox.
Check out the information and if it is what you expected click on “Upload products”. Once they have been uploaded, a blue box will appear containing the date and time of the upload. As this process can be timely, you will also receive an email confirmation once the upload has been completed.
