Step 1: Upload product images to Media Library


The first thing that has to be in place before Bulk Uploading your product data, is to make sure all the product images are uploaded into the 🖼️ Media Library in Turis.  


💡 Pro Tip! give your product images a simple file name, such as the SKU or the product title. This will be of great help, when linking the product with the images file(s) in the Turis' product template file.



You upload your product images by going to 🖼️ Media Library in the menu on the left-hand side. 



Now click on the "+ / plus" button in the upper right corner and the window below will open.



Then you can either drag the images you want to upload into the dotted square or click on it to search your local drive. 



Once you have added all your product images to the Media Library remember to click "Save" to upload them. You are now ready to go step 2.







Step 2: Download template


To begin with, click on 🛠️ Tools in the menu on the left-hand side, followed by clicking on Bulk uploader. Your window should look like this now.




Now click on "Select from list" and the dropdown will unfold, for you to choose what type of data upload you want to do. Here you select "Products".



Your window should now look like this.



Here you click on the "Download template" button, to download the Turis product template CSV. 


🔔 Please note: if you need to convert the CSV into an excel file you can follow these four simple steps: 


1. Open the file and go to the Data tab in excel


2. Click on Text to Columns

Step 3: Fill in your product data


Some fields are required to be filled out, in order to upload the Turis product template. The table below will explain what all the fields mean.
