Products with Alternative Units of Measure (UOM) require additional fields to store their data. To make it easier to import this additional information, a separate import template for Alternative Unit of Measure products is provided to give you an idea of what is required.
If you sell both UOM and simple products, you will be able to import both in the same import spreadsheet by simply omitting the irrelevant fields for the simple products.
Before importing UOM products, it is recommended to review the Creating a Product, Product Codes, and Alternative Units of Measure Help articles for background on Cin7's product structure before beginning the alternative Units of Measure import process.
See the Importing Simple Products Help article for additional information on just importing simple products.
