Import Existing Retailers
In order to begin, your CSV file (what is a CSV file?) must contain the following column headers:
Once you have your CSV file formatted accordingly, log into your Prolo dashboard.
- Login: http://app.prolofinder.com/users/sign_in
- Navigate to Add Locations: Locations -> Add -> Add Locations from a File
- Now, click 'Choose CSV File' and locate your csv file on your computer, select it and click 'Upload CSV'
- A new import is created and the retailers you provided are ready to be processed. Generally, this takes 5-10 minutes to complete but may take up to several hours.
If you do however experience issues while trying to upload a CSV file to Prolo, you may need to update your save-as settings. If you're using common software such as Microsoft Excel, you can change these settings by selecting "save as" from the File menu and selecting "Windows Comma Separated (.csv)" from the format option located in the lower portion of the popup screen. This option will change the file type to one that is more compatible with our import tool. Once you've completed these steps, save your file with a new name and try importing the newly created CSV.
