How To Import Your Reviews

Part A - Formatting the CSV

  1. Directly copy this Google Sheet to your Google Drive and prepare the import file.
  2. Fill in review details in the same format as the sample reviews in rows #2 and #3. Once you've done that, remove the sample reviews in rows #2 and #3.
  3. Make sure the date is in the following format:YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS. For example, 2020-12-13 13:00:00.

  4. Make sure the product id is correctly entered, e.g., 44122744568127. Learn more.
  5. Download the formatted review data as a CSV.

Important

  • Make sure there are no empty rows or duplicate entries.
  • Make sure the date is in the required format (#3 above).
  • You can choose to fill product_handle instead of product_id if you wish.
  • The default headers in the template shouldn’t be changed or removed.

Part B - Upload Reviews

  1. Open a new browser tab and log in to Stamped
  2. Navigate to Importer > Reviews from the left navigation menu under Settings:

Tips

  • Update the published column depending on whether you'd like to showcase a given review or not. For example, enter the value TRUE to set the review status as Published, and FALSE to keep a negative or misleading review unpublished.
  • In the location column, you can either enter the full name or the country code (e.g., United States or US (ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 format)).
  • You can prepare the CSV using any editor or spreadsheet software, however, some programs like MS Excel tend to convert the values into scientific notation which might corrupt the intended format of certain fields (e.g., the required date format). We recommend using the above-linked Google Sheet instead and downloading to CSV.
