The products imports

There is such thing as product templates on Jumia seller center, which are supposed to help people to list many products at once instead of listing them one by one. Go to the product imports page, and download templates for various product categories that you are selling. The template contains the descriptions of all the attributes, the examples of them, and a template table that you will need to fill with your products. When you are done, just save the table as a .csv file. Then, you need to choose the import mode for creating products or updating those that already exist. Also, you can import or update images via the CSV upload.

When the file is uploaded, you should be aware that it might take time to import your products into the Jumia system. When the file upload is successful, it means that the file is valid, and the system is now attempting to create or update the product. You can view the current state of the file you have imported in the feed table, which is below the import section. In case you see some errors in the file, you can choose the option “Details”, and the overview of the file will be opened, with all the file errors listed.

If you want to see a full list of those products that were rejected, you can click “Products”, and then “Manage your Products”. There are a few available filters:

  • Image missing – the products that were rejected because of lack of images. To sell your product successfully, you need to have images on it.
  • Poor quality – the product has been rejected by the Content Team because of its supposed quality.
  • Sold out – the product has no stock anymore, and the customers are unable to purchase it.
  • Inactive – the products are set as inactive, products which are edited but their old version is still up in the Shop System, or those products that are waiting for being approved of quality by the Jumia Content Team.

You can upload the product in bulks when it is possible, instead of listing them one by one. This way of uploading is much more convenient.
