How do you feel when it is time to update your Kong store? Do you look forward to using that old friend of ours… the spreadsheet? Probably not! Well, Venzee has heard your prayers and is going to make your eCommerce life nearly spreadsheet-free by allowing you to both create and update Kong-ready products with only minimal handling of spreadsheets.
Find out how it works:
Step 1: Sign Up in a Snap
Set up your Venzee account free of charge, and get to work right away importing your data to Venzee. Take those CSV, XLS or XLSX files your suppliers send you and upload them in seconds. This is now your Source Data.
Step 2: The Kong Template
Go to the Dynamic Data label on top and click the green Add button. Find and select the Kong template in the library and click Next.
Step 3: Attributes & Fields
Now we’re going to create what we call a Dynamic Collection. Venzee helps you do this by mapping your data’s attributes (ID, size, weight, etc.) to the Kong template fields. This process, called Data Transformation, allows you to use things like dynamic pricing to create new content using your data and the template fields. Other advanced functions include the ability to create spec tables, perform math calculations, and add padding.
For tips on how to complete the template fields, click on the purple “?” icon to the right.
Step 4: Generate & Update
Once you’re finished mapping click “Generate” and you’re pretty much done. This action will transform your Source Data into Dynamic Data compatible with Kong. Click “Export” and follow the instructions to get the download link in your inbox. Use this file to update your Kong store in no time.
Enjoy Your Nearly Spreadsheet-Free Life
Forget about working on products one at a time. Venzee helps you transform product records in bulk, saving you time and money. And it gets better… when your Source Data is updated your Kong-ready products update as well without all the spreadsheet headache you went through before!
