Replacing your whole store list

After you've been using Stockist for a while, you might want to update your store list to reflect changes in your distribution. Fortunately, we offer an easy way to swap in a new store list without any downtime on your locator.

To update your store list, follow these steps:

  1. Open the bulk import page of your dashboard, click Start an import, and follow the prompts to import a complete, current list of all of your stores. Don't worry about visitors seeing duplicate stores - when you first import a list it starts out in an an unpublished state and won't show up on your locator just yet.
  2. Once the file has been imported, click the button to go to the import results page.
  3. If there were any issues with your import (e.g. if a map pin could not be found), they'll be listed here along with links to fix the issue. If you'd like to take care of these issues, we suggest doing so now.
  4. When you're ready to complete the process, look for the This import hasn't been published yet section. Click Show more options.
  5. Select This import contains a complete list of all stores. Note the warning that existing stores will be deleted - be sure the list you just imported contains all of your stores.
  6. Click Publish import to instantly replace all of your existing stores with your new list.

If you have any questions or have a more complex situation (e.g. multiple lists from different distributors), we're happy to help - just click "Contact Us" in the header.
