A Product Feed can be used to add new products or update existing ones, specifically in bulk. A feed is simply a .csv file in a Houzz-specified format, with each row representing a product. You can add product listings using a Houzz feed or a feed compatible with Amazon.
From Seller Central, click on the “Upload Product Feed” link under the “Products” section in the left-hand column.
Make sure the Import/Update Products tab is the active tab. It will be in white as shown.
When uploading new products or updating existing data, do not check the box for “Overwrite Listings” or “Update Images.”
Once an item is approved, you will no longer be able to adjust titles, description, dimensions, style, category or images. Please go to https://support.houzz.com and submit a request if you need to edit these fields.
Tip: If you remove a SKU from your data sheet, it will NOT be removed from Houzz. If an item is out of stock or discontinued, you will need to either remove the item through your Seller Central or through the inventory feed.
From the drop down menu, select the type of feed you will be using.
Step 1: To use a Houzz data feed, select “Houzz data feed” from the drop down menu.
Step 2: Click the green link to download the Houzz template. The full format for the “Product Feed” is defined here. A document will be downloaded to your computer. Open the document and click the “instructions tab” for instructions on completing the form. Complete and save as a .csv file.
Step 3: Return to the Upload Product Feed page, choose the file and click Upload. A window will pop up letting you know that the feed has successfully uploaded and how to view the status of the feed.
If any products have failed, you will see an error message on the View Status page with the corresponding line from the feed. Make corrections as advised, save, and re-upload the file.
Houzz will review all uploaded products as soon as possible. Products will have a “pending” status until approved.
Tip: All HTML will be stripped and only certain HTML tags are preserved (as text). Example <BR> for line break or <LI> for bullet points
