Bulk Import: Creating New Offers in Voluum

Creating new offers in bulk gives you great flexibility and automates your daily work. With the bulk import feature, you can import up to 250 offers and set them up in your ad campaigns. In a blink of an eye. Easy.

I.  Download a CSV Template


First, you need to learn how to prepare the data to deliver it formatted appropriately for the Voluum's structure. In order to jump right in, Voluum provides you the CSV template that indicates which columns should be filled in with accurate pieces of information.    



  
    
                     

To get the Voluum template where you can add your offers, perform the steps:

1. Sign in to Voluum.

2. Go to Offers. The Offers view will show up.

3. Click the Bulk actions > Import new offers drop-down button. The Import new offers form will show up.

4. Go to the first step of the importing process and click the CSV template button to download the CSV file with a predefined file structure. 


Voluum Tip: You need to follow a data pattern implemented in the Voluum platform to be able to upload many offers at once. It is highly recommended to always use the CSV template while importing offers in bulk.  


5. Save the Voluum CSV template locally on your machine.





 


















II. Fill out the Template with Your Offers


Once you have got the CSV template that is suitable for the Voluum's data structure, you need to prepare your data.


 
  
    
                     


1. Open the downloaded Voluum template with a CSV editor that works best for you.

2. Add entries for your new offers following basic rules listed below:

2a. One offer is represented on a separate row in the CSV file.

2b. In the file, each row must end with a line break and each column must be separated with a semicolon.

2c. Offer's properties are added according to a certain pattern delivered within the Voluum template.


Before you start editing the CSV template, read more about the Voluum's data structure and how the offers should be added to the CSV file:
