Sniffie supports importing your own products directly using a CSV file / XML / JSON feed available for download by Sniffie from a web address of your choosing.

Here are the minimum specifications for a basic feed:

Sniffie feed guidelines

File / feed must use UTF-8 encoding.

Category, Product name, Product code, Brand and Website are used to generate a unique identifier for each product. When refreshing the feed, these are used to update the existing entry in Sniffie's database. If these fields do not match with anything, a new product entry is added. **This behaviour will change, so that new entries from a feed are unique by SKU only.**

If product image is added, it should be downloadable over the internet or be encoded with base64 (up to 1024 characters)

File / feed  should be available for download by HTTP/HTTPS.
