One of the most frequent complaints heard from eCommerce merchants involves the frustrating, labor-intensive process related to creating or updating products for their Highwire online store.
It’s the spreadsheets. Nobody likes them and for good reason. They are an absolute nightmare to work with. That’s why we started Venzee!
Venzee does the heavy duty spreadsheet lifting so that you don’t have to. With Venzee you can both create and update your Highwire store with only a minimal amount of spreadsheet use.
How it works:
Step 1: Simple Sign Up
It takes less than a minute to sign up. Once you’re done, take the product information your supplier or manufacturer shared with you (via Venzee, CSV, XLS, or XLSX, online form, or from our Integration Marketplace) and import it into Venzee. You’re all set to continue on in the process of transforming your data into Highwire-ready records.
Step 2: Meet Our Template Library
Ok, by now you’ve imported your product information into Venzee. Good job! Now go to the Dynamic Data tab on top of your collection, and find the green Add+ button. Welcome to our Template Library! Locate the Highwire template, select and click Next. You’re almost done!
Step 3: Map Those Attributes!
It’s time to map your data’s attributes (size, color, name etc.) with the fields you see in the Highwire template. If you’re not quite sure how to do this click the little question mark for more information.
You can do fun stuff like create new content by combining the template’s fields with your data. This is how dynamic pricing works. You can also do math calculations, make spec tables, and even add padding to make your data match Highwire standards. We call this process Data Transformation and it’s going to save you a lot of time and money because you’re not working with single products, but performing actions in bulk!
Step 4: Generate
When you’re done mapping attributes to fields click “Generate” and then “Export” to get the file sent to your email. You’re done!
The Source Data you imported in Step 1 is now fully compatible with your Highwire platform! This file – the one that Venzee just sent to your email – is the one you’re going to use to create and update products for your Highwire store.
Kick Back, Relax, And Leave It To Venzee!
