Required Data for Order CSV Imports

Even if you don’t have the option to Export Orders from your selling channel, you can assemble a CSV file from scratch. Just be sure to include at least the following pieces of information:

  • Order Number

  • Item Name

  • Customer First and Last Name

  • Shipping Address

    The Shipping Address must be separated into a column for each part: Street Address column, City column, State column, and Zip Code column.

While not required, we strongly suggest that you also include the following information:

  • Item Quantity

  • Item Weight

  • Customer Email Address
