How to Use Bulk Operations

Bulk operations help you change multiple items in your Products or Listings Workspaces quickly and easily. Here's how to take advantage of this tool.

In addition to making edits to individual items from within the grid of SellerActive's Products and Listings Workspaces, you can also perform certain actions in bulk. SellerActive still supports bulk functionality through a CSV upload, however, bulk operations will help you expedite the process by performing tasks natively from within the user interface.

How to access the bulk operation menu

The bulk operations button can be seen below your Advanced Filter options. The box will become highlighted once you select any SKU's from either the Products or Listings Workspace. 

Bulk_Operations

  • We do suggest filtering your SKU's via the quick search bar or with any of the columns that are visible to you. 
  • To select all items, you can select the check box that to the far left of your column headers. 
    Bulk_P

When you select an SKU within the grid (either one by one or with the select all button), you will see a box highlighted on the left side of your screen. The options you see here will vary depending on which workspace you are in.

Products Workspace

Within the Products Workspace you are able to delete Products from SellerActive and all sales channels associated with them.

Delete

  • Using this option will remove the listing from both the Products and Listings Workspaces, and will remove all saved options, such as prices, pricing strategy, cost, etc.
  • This delete option does not remove the listing from the marketplace or send a quantity of 0 to the marketplace. If you do not remove the listing from the marketplace directly then the item will be re-imported.
  • We will import full inventory files once every 24 hours. If you do plan to delete products we recommend doing those action same day otherwise the items may re-import.
  • For more information on the Delete functionality, please reference this article

Listings Workspace

Currently, you can perform bulk operations within the Listings Workspace to assign pricing strategies and shipping policies. These options must be created prior to the bulk actions being used.

Each option is marketplace-specific: pricing strategies are created within SellerActive, while shipping policies are created on the marketplace directly.

Categorization

  • You can only categorize 100 listings at a time.
  • If you have already published an item through SellerActive, you cannot edit the categorization after the fact. You will see that the line was skipped from within the Bulk Operation window.
  • If you have a valid Product ID attached to your Products, we will actively attempt to gather the category for you. If the item does not have a Product ID, you might need to manually add the category through this bulk operation.

Apply Pricing Strategy or Shipping Policies

If you have pricing strategies create within SellerActive, you can assign them in bulk to your listings. 

If we have imported your shipping profiles from the marketplace, those options will be available within these drop down menus. 

Here is an example of when you do not have your shipping policies enabled:

Remove your Listings from SellerActive

Using SellerActive you can remove your listings local to our platform. This can be used for general account clean up or when you're attempting to refresh your account.
