WP Maps Product CSV Guide

One of the most useful features of WP Maps is the ability to upload multiple products through CSV files.

To avoid any issues with product CSV uploads, users will have to follow the exact format for a CSV file that will be uploaded to the WP Maps platform.

This guide will explain in detail how you should structure and populate your product CSV file so that it can be recognized by the WP Maps platform.

List of Mandatory Data Columns #

The following is a list of mandatory data columns that should appear in your product CSV file before you upload it into WP Maps. Please be sure all column headings are in lowercase.

  1. sku
  2. title
  3. description
  4. price
  5. images
  6. website

List of Optional Data Columns #

The following is a list of optional data columns that you can add to your product CSV file. Furthermore, a CSV can be successfully uploaded even without these data columns. Please be sure all column headings are in lowercase and that each word is separated with a “_” (underscore) symbol. For example, “best_buy”:

  1. amazon
  2. walmart
  3. target
  4. costco
  5. the_home_depot
  6. best _buy
  7. kroger_co

Product CSV Data Format  #

This section will explain what each column heading means, and in what format you should enter the data for each column so that it is recognized by the WP Maps platform.

For each column heading you will need to enter data for it to be uploaded into the WP Maps platform.

Moreover, all mandatory column headings, such as “sku”, should be populated with data for proper CSV upload. However, there is one exception, the data in the “description” column is optional. As a result, the data in the “description” column won’t affect the CSV upload process.

Let’s go over each column heading one by one and see their requirements
