Product Data Updates: Import via FTP Upload

  • Updated
Add or update your DC products automatically via FTP Upload
To get started, send DistributorCentral's product data team your custom product data spreadsheet. We'll work with you to build an import process to handle your custom data template in future updates.

Once the custom process is created by DC's product team, your product data updates get automatically processed when uploaded via SFTP.
