Spreadsheets try the patience of every single eCommerce vendor. They’re clunky, a magnet for human error, and if it seems as it they go on and on forever it’s because they do. They’re ability to put the most even-tempered person into a bad mood is legendary. Unfortunately, there wasn’t any other way to work because your supply chain shares their product information with you via spreadsheets. You were stuck with them…

How Venzee works:
Step 1: Sign Up In Less Than A Minute
Sign up for Venzee takes just a few seconds, and doesn’t require a credit card. When you’re done you can start uploading your data to Venzee right away!
Step 2: Selecting The ArtFire Template From Our Template Library
The ArtFire template is where it all happens. So, let’s head over to the Template Library and pick it up. Click on Dynamic Data and then the “Add” button. When you find the ArtFire template, select it and click “Next”.
Step 3: Creating A Dynamic Collection Using The ArtFire Template
Creating a Dynamic Collection involves the simple process of mapping the attributes in your data (size, weight etc.) to the fields in the ArtFire template. It’s a very simple process. However, if you’re doing it for the first time and need some assistance just click on the “?” for help. Unless the format of your source data changes in some way you only need to go through this process one time.
We’ve created some advanced features like the ability to create tables, do math, and add padding to make your products look nice in the ArtFire platform. You can also create new data by bringing together your source data’s attributes and the template’s fields. This is how dynamic pricing works.
When you’re finished click “Generate” and you’re all done! Click “Export”, follow the instructions, and Venzee will send you a download link for the file. This file is what you will use to create ArtFire-compatible products from your source data.
Step 4: Relax. Life Is So Much Easier When You Let Venzee Handle It!
Your Venzeefied, ArtFire-compatible products are dynamic. They are linked to your source data and whenever the source data gets changed they change as well…automatically. We told you that you’d be working faster and with almost no spreadsheets!
