Stock CSV Import

Stock CSV Import is ONLY intended for initial setup. This is due to the fact that the Ka-ching system is built around traceability, and all stock modifications are logged with detailed information about the reasons for the stock change (e.g. sales, returns, reception of goods or resets due to a stock inventory count).

The CSV Import is logged as 'stock import reset' event, so it basically overwrites the existing stock counts and does not provide a lot of detailed information as to the reason.

For this reason it should be used very sparingly - ideally only when the system is initially configured.

The format is very simple:

Format description:

Products without variants:

product_id,quantity
0001,11
0002,20
1234,1

Download sample

Products with variants:

product_id,variant_id,quantity
0001,blue,11
0001,red,2
0002,medium,20
0002,large,32
0003,,10

Note that it is ok to leave out the variant id for products without variants in the latter form.
