Import Inventory CSV into ShipStation

Troubleshooting Tips:

  • Use ShipStation's sample inventory import template, which you can download from the Inventory Import pop-up screen in ShipStation.

  • SKU and Stock fields in the CSV are required.

  • When performing an import, blank fields in the CSV file will cause the matching field to be empty in ShipStation.

  • Reducing inventory stock to 0 for a product will not delete the Inventory Warehouse Location.

  • Stock cannot be set to less than the current Allocated amount for that product. Check the Product > Inventory grid to see the allocated stock for your products.
