For example, Laptops>>Macbook or just Macbook. Note, if you are specifying full path, your parent category must exist, if category is newly created, it will be assigned to parent category automatically. If you are specifying most bottom category name, it should be unique.


File name of a picture (ex. phone.png), or URL to a picture, or full path on server.

Discount Name or ID

You can specify multiple discounts in one cell, you should use | (vertical bar) symbol for this. Example, 20% off|30% off would apply 20% off and 30% off discounts.

All other column destinations do not support inputing multiple values in one cell, and they don't support using multiple columns as well.
