eSagu ebay RePricing "CSV-file format"

With our CSV-data you can access your data record quickly and effectively. You can update your prices on eSagu and amazon simultaneously .

Click on "CSV FILES" option in the menu (on the left) to customize your CSV-template.

Eg. You can create a template named "price rules" with the columns SKU, MIN_PRICE and MAX_PRICE.

We recommend you use the freeware OpenOffice / LibreOffice for editing the CSV-files. Select Encoding: UTF8 and Delimiter: semicolon. Ensure that you save the prices with two decimal places. You can use a comma(12,34), point (12.34) or no separator (1234).

If you edit your CSV-File on Microsoft Excel ensure that all columns are formatted as "text". Otherwise, the following errors might occur:

SKU "0110" Microsoft Excel omits the leading zero which creates a new, unrecognizable SKU number "110".

A price of 10.10 could be interpreted by Excel as a date like "10th Oct.".

Below you will find a table with all selectable columns and their description.

You can email us any time on support@esagu.eu if you have any questions concerning the CSV files and if you need help editing them.
