It is a free tool to massively upload lots and keep the catalog up to date. You only need a file in .csv or .txt format of your current catalog.
If you don't have a digitized database, you can create your own file from one of the templates of todocoleccion. You can download them in the User guide of Importamatic.
It is recommended for sellers with a large catalog of lots, such as the sale of books, comics, music, films, stamps or coins.
There are two ways to update your catalog with Importamatic: sending a file with your complete catalog or sending files only with new registrations, changes and/or cancellations of your references.
If you want to send us your entire catalog for the first time or update the catalog you already have on todocoleccion, choose "Option 2 - Send complete catalog".
If you want to send only the new lots (new registrations, cancellations or changes) with respect to your current catalog on todocoleccion, then you must choose "Option 1 - Send only the new lots".
To send us your file go to your personal page of My todocoleccion and click on the section Importamatic.
Once inside the Importamatic page you will be able to choose one of the upload options according to your interest.
Remember that the button to overwrite images should only be checked in case you want to replace images that you already have in your lots with new ones that are already inserted in your file via URL.
When you click the button "Upload file" a window will open for you to select the file from your PC.
Once confirmed, the upload will start and when it is finished you will see it reflected with the status "Pending" in the upload history, waiting for the file to be processed.
Once the file is processed it will change to the status "Completed", or it will appear as "Rejected" if it does not meet the requirements. In such cases, our responsible editors will contact you with a notice to let you know why the file has been rejected.
You can associate your images by including image URLs in the file; these must be previously hosted on a web server or on your website. You will need as many image fields as you have URLs for each lot.
You can also associate images using the Photobooth or FTP. To do this you will need to rename each image with the exact same name of the reference to which it corresponds. E.g. If your reference is 123, the name of the main image must be: 123.jpg; and if you have additional images: 123_2.jpg, 123_3.jpg, 123_4.jpg...
If your file already has the mandatory fields, we will adapt it to our system and if any of them are missing, we will help you to incorporate them. These are the main requirements that the file must meet:
