Updating product prices and stock levels on listings automatically

After you have created your products in the inventory, update your prices and stock levels automatically to avoid problems

This help article is written for our suppliers and will not be relevant if you are an Avasam seller. To access seller-specific articles, please follow this link.

Updating products

If you need to update a product or products, and you're not using an integrated software solution such as Linnworks, we recommend that you use a product feed file for detailed changes or a stock and price feed file for updating stock levels and prices.

When Avasam finds a file named Avasam Supplier Stock and Price Feed.csv in a specified FTP folder on our server, it will import it and then delete the file to confirm that it has been imported successfully. Contact our support team if you don't have access to this FTP folder. 

Stock and price feed columns

Column name Description Mandatory


Internal identifier/SKU for product Yes
StockQuantity Current available stock level Yes
PriceExclVAT Net price to seller. Ex VAT Yes
RRPExclVAT Recommended Retail Price, ex VAT No
VAT%Rate VAT rate to apply to product as whole number (e.g. "20", "0") Yes
ShippingCountry 2 digit country code for the country you ship the product from (e.g. GB, US, ES) see ISO 3166 country codes http://www.iban.com/country-codes No


You can use quotes around the information in individual fields, but it's not compulsory.

For example: 

"10.99" is the same as 10.99

"Sony" is the same as Sony

Repricing software

Please remember that, if using automatic repricing software on listings generated by or controlled by Avasam, they will override any rules or updates made within our sotware. As such, we cannot be held responsible if margins are not covered by the sale price in an order where this software is used, so ensure you check your products and the repricing software regularly.

For BigCommerce listings, you must ensure that your VAT/Tax settings are properly configured before listing products or sending price updates.
