Click Here for a Video Tutorial Overview of the Bulk Lister.
The Bulk Lister allows you to list and manage your items in bulk, using a CSV file. In general, you can list multiple items much quicker using the Bulk Lister compared to using the standard Sell Your Item process. The Bulk Lister is also a great option if you would like to import, manage, or even keep your inventory in sync with an external database, spreadsheet or website. For more details on these advanced options, see the Bulk Lister - Advanced Usage page.
||This is the title of your listing.
||This is the numeric category id which corresponds to your listing. Only valid numeric category ids as specified on the Bulk Lister > Categories page can be entered.
||This is the description of your listing.
||This is either a URL to your image (if hosted online) or the file name of your image (if hosted on your own computer - see Images below).
|start_price or buyout_price
||The Starting Price (auctions) or Buy It Now Price (store items) of your listing.
||The Private ID of your listing. While optional, we recommend that all listings include a Private ID (or SKU). Note that when using a Private ID, it must be unique across all of your open listings. Including a Private ID will help you to manage your inventory, and allow you to easily Bulk Update your listings in the future.
As noted within the Fields section, certain fields only accept specific values, including the category_id field. You can review the list of acceptable numeric category id numbers from the Bulk Lister > Category page:
||The Magic Category: Stamps will place each of your listings in the appropriate stamp category on HipStamp, based upon the Country included within your listing's title. If your listing does not include a Country do not use this magic category.
||The Magic Category: Postcards will place each of your listings in the appropriate location based postcard category on HipPostcard, based upon the Country, State and/or City information included within your listing's title. If your listing does not include a Country, State and/or City do not use this magic category.
||Postcards by Topic
||The Magic Category: Postcards by Topic will place each of your listings in the appropriate postcard category under the Topics (Themes) main category on HipPostcard, based upon the information included within your listing's title.
For any fields which are not included within your (Basic) Bulk Lister CSV file, such as shipping costs, your Default Listing Settings will be used. As such, please review the settings you currently have set within the Members Area > Selling > Seller Tools > Default Listing Settings page.
If you need to set different shipping costs for one or more of the items within your Bulk Lister CSV file (different than your Default Listing Settings), please see the Bulk Lister - Shipping Costs page for additional instructions.
If you would like to provide value for Item Specifics, such as "Main Character", "Stamp Condition", etc., or to review which Item Specifics will be automatically filled in when omitted through the power of Magic Item Specifics, please see the Bulk Lister - Item Specifics page for additional instructions.
