How do I import data to inFlow Cloud?

You can import data to inFlow Cloud, but first you’ll need a file! This guide will show you all you need to know about importing to inFlow

Import file

The file should be a .csv file (spreadsheet). You can take a look at the example files at the bottom of this article to see how it might look like. If you want to format your own spreadsheet for importing, please see the following for how to do so:

It’s not possible to have one file containing all of the above at a time, so depending on what type of data you’re looking to import, please select the corresponding article for further detail.

Are you thinking of using an integration with inFlow? Before you import products and other information you might want to make sure your product names match your other system. Check to see if you can export a csv from your other system and you can use that to create new products in inFlow.
