Importing Listings

In order to allow merchants to upload and manage a large number of listings, Adult DVD Marketplace supports the importing of a tab-delimited text file that can be created in any spreadsheet application, such as Excel.

Creating the spreadsheet

To create this file, a spreadsheet must be created with the following columns:

Column 1
This column must contain the Adult DVD Marketplace ID for the DVD being loaded. This ID can be found manually by visiting the info page for that DVD (where it is labeled as the SKU), or through an automated process described below.
Column 2
This column must contain the condition of the DVD. This can be either: New, Like New, Very Good, Good, or Acceptable. For more info on these conditions, please review our condition guidelines.
Column 3
This column contains any comments that you want to be displayed beside your listing describing either the DVD itself, or giving information about yourself.
Column 4
This column contains the price of the DVD (without a dollar sign).
Column 5
This column contains a count of how many copies of the DVD you have available. For used items this will normally be set to 1. If you don't want us to track inventory for you, but instead want the listing to always be displayed, you can set the count to a value of -1. In this case you will be responsible for manually canceling the listing if you run out of inventory.
Column 6 (Optional)
This column can contain an internal ID that will be stored with the listing and will be printed on the notification e-mail that is sent to you following a sale. This is for your own internal use only, and is optional.
Column 7+ (Optional)
If you want to store additional info related to this DVD in the spreadsheet for your own personal use you can use columns 6 and higher. This info will be ignored when the file is imported.
Sample Excel Spreadsheet
Creating the import file

In order to create an import file from this spreadsheet, you must save or export the spreadsheet to a tab-delimited text file. In Excel, select "Text (tab-delimited)" from the "Save As Type" selector on the dialog for saving the file.

Loading the import file

Once you have saved the spreadsheet as a tab-delimited text file, you are ready to import the file into Adult DVD Marketplace. The process is:

  • Select "Import/Export Listings" from the "User Account" menu
  • Select "Browse" to choose the file to be uploaded, or type the filename directly into the text field.
  • Click the "Import listings" button to load the listings from your file.
  • Our system will process your import file, and you will be sent a notification when they are available online. Note that any listings you had live at the time of the import will be replaced with the contents of your imported listings.

Exporting your listings

If you want to create an import file from a set of listings that you have loaded manually, or if you want to create a new import file based on your current listings, you can do so by selecting the "Export your listings" option from the import page.

You can edit this file in Excel by importing the tab-delimited text file. This is done by selecting "Import External Data" from the "Data" menu.

Looking up DVD IDs by Title or UPC

If you want to find the IDs for a large number of titles, rather than looking them up by viewing each DVD's info page, you can use our automated matching tool. To use this feature you should create a text file containing the titles of the DVDs you wish to import, with one title per line.

We now also support an optional UPC in the second column, which may be used to enhance your search results. Please note that our UPC database is not complete nor 100% accurate, so please review these matches very carefully. Consult here if you need more info on how to create a CSV from Excel.

Once you've created your file, select the file in the "Get DVD IDs" section of the import page and click the "Get IDs" button.

Our search will find the ID for any DVD with exactly one title matching the exact spelling of the title you provided, or the UPC. Results will vary depending on the complexity and uniqueness of the title. If an ID is not located, then that title is most likely stored under a slightly different spelling. In this case, you should use the title search tool to locate that title.

Exporting Your Sales
