Matching Attribute

Create New Products
If enabled, the import will create new products for non-existent product IDs.
Set New Products for Planogramming
If enabled, newly created products will be designed to create planograms. This option is active only when Create New Products is enabled.
Ignore Deleted Products
By default, when the import does not find a live product for a given ID, it searches among the deleted products. If it finds a deleted one, it revives it. Enabling this option ignores deleted products instead of reviving them.
Do Not Overwrite Non-zero Measurements
If enabled, dimensions from imported records (e.g. height, width) are only imported if the existing dimension value is zero.
Product attributes to clear
List of attributes whose values are cleared from all products before importing.
