Create New Products on ChannelAdvisor:
There are 2-ways to add new products through ChannelAdviser. They are:
- Using Bulk file
Listing a single product at a time is the most basic method and a little bit time-consuming. But using bulk files (Excel / CSV/ TEXT) it’s much easier and faster than the manual process. Because with the help of Bulk file you can add multiple products at once, but we prefer both methods.
Okay, Let’s dive into the process of creating a new product listing on ChannelAdvisor Manually or in Bulk.

Step 1: First you need to log in to your channel advisor account.
Step 2: Hover over to the Products menu then click on the Catalog option
Step 3: After clicking the Catalog then the Catalog page will appear. On that page, click on the Create New option and select the Product from the dropdown.
