Approved Headers

  • Use this list to build your own files for uploading inventory to your AoB account.
  • All headers should be lowercase. While some are accepted as uppercase, not all of them are, so it's best to err on the side of caution and use all lowercase.
  • The only required header in your file is the sku, with all other headers being necessary only for the task they are to complete.  (Example: say you wanted to do a mass delete of some old stock. You could send us a file with just the sku and qty fields with 0 (zero) as the value of the qty column.)
