Bulk Upload Guide




We know that your time is precious, so we have created two different solutions to enable you to easily bulk upload your products to ForgeHub.


Requirements


There are a few small requirements when bulk uploading your products. They are:

  1. Folder Structure - a product will need to have its own dedicated folder. This means that all contents (images, 3D files, textures etc) will need to be within the folder for that product.

  2. Products Details - we will need to know the details of the product (Name, Description, Price etc) so we can populate our product page. We can receive these details in on of two ways:

    • An Excel document that sits above all the product folders containing the details of every product; or
    • A text (.txt) document that sits within each product folder - with details for that specific product.

  1. Log in to your Google account.
  2. Navigate to Drive.
  3. Right click on the folder you wish to share.
  4. Select + Share.
  5. Enter our email address - support@forgehub.net.
  6. In the Message box - tell us your ForgeHub username and the number of products you wish to share.
  7. Click Send - Easy!

Method Two: FTP


If Google Drive is not an option for you, we can also set you up with a secure AWS S3 Bucket - which is essentially a big hard drive in the cloud - to which you can easily ftp your files.

  1. Send an email to support@forgehub.net requesting an S3 Bucket - with your username and the number of products you wish to share.
  2. We will then create your dedicated bucket and send you a response email with your authorisation details.
  3. Download a free ftp client - we recommend Cyberduck or WinSCP .
  4. In your FTP Client - Connect to your S3 bucket with your new authorisation details.
  5. Simply drag and drop any files or folders you wish to upload into your new bucket.
  6. Done!
