You’re spending a lot of time messing around with spreadsheets in order to update your ShopManiaBiz store. You’re doing this because that’s the way it has always been done in the eCommerce world.

Step 2: The Secret Weapon: The ShopManiaBiz Template
The secret weapon that’s going to allow you to do amazing things with your source data is Venzee’s ShopManiaBiz template. You’ll find it in our Template Library which you can go to by clicking on Dynamic Data and then clicking the “Add” button. Once you find the ShopManiaBiz template, select it.

Step 3: How To Create a Dynamic Collection Using The ShopManiaBiz Template
We’ve selected the ShopManiaBiz template. Now we will use it to create some products that are fully compatible with the ShopManiaBiz platform and the first thing we need to do is create a Dynamic Collection.
Making a Dynamic Collection involves mapping your source data’s attributes (color, size) etc. against the template’s fields. It’s a very simple process. However, if you need some assistance with this just click the “?” or watch the video. Provided that the format of your source data doesn’t change this is a one-time process.
There are some advanced features that you can use while mapping your data. They include the ability to make spec tables, do math, and add padding. You also have the option of creating entirely new content by combining the template’s fields with your data’s attributes.
When your done mapping your data click “Generate” and then “Export”. We will send you an email with a download link for the file that you’ll use to create your ShopManiaBiz products.
