In this tutorial, we'll look at creating multiple products using the Bulk Update Products feature. This feature can be used when creating new products or updating existing products.
Locate the Bulk update feature under the Inventory tab. On this page you'll configure, create and submit a bulk update file containing product information.
Click "Get Template file" and select a file format from this drop down. The file can be formatted as an Excel spreadsheet, tab delimited, or a CSV file.
Now select column headers you want to include in the product creation, like Product Name, UPC, and so on.
Select a column name, and click Add to List. Select another column name until you have all the properties you want to upload. When your list is complete, click Download Template.
Open the template. The template will open with definitions of the column names and sample values in each column. Enter product values in their appropriate fields and save your template.
Now we're back at the Bulk update template page. Select either UPC or Product ID as the product identifier in the "First Column Type" field. For new products click "Create Product if none exist."
Choose the file template you created for the new products and select a file type. Finally, submit the template into the queue for processing and the products will be created in your catalog.
You can view the results of your bulk update and track changes to existing products by clicking on the "View Bulk Update Log" tab.
Search for the bulk update and view details of the upload including who uploaded and when, the column names that were updated, the original and new values, whether it was successfully uploaded, and error messages when the upload was unsuccessful.
You can undo a file upload by clicking on the rollback file tab. This will revert your catalog back to what is was before the bulk upload
Child marriages are common:
On a recent day, eight community elders sat in a [refugee] camp, some chewing khat, the narcotic leaf favored by most Yemeni men. Seven have married off their girls this year.
Even Salim, the elder who worked at the charity, is preparing to marry off his two daughters, ages 13 and 14. "I want to feel secure of their futures, if only for economic reasons," he said.
Mohammad Ali al-Ansi married off his two girls, ages 13 and 14, in April. "My heart is bleeding inside, but I was forced to do this," he said. "I have no job. Its difficult for me to feed my 10 children." He received $1,600 in dowry for each of his girls, he said. But after paying for their weddings and meeting other debts, the money has nearly run out. "If things get worse, theres no doubt Ill marry off my 12-year-old daughter," Ansi said.
More on Ansis 14-year-old daughter Fatma, married to 21-year-old Zaid:
Fatma spent her day cooking and washing clothes for her in-laws. When asked the name of her husbands family, Fatma didnt know it. She remembers her father telling her and her sister, Amal, that the family needed money. She remembers that Amal was in tears because her new husband was taking her to another region. The two sisters have not seen each other since their weddings.
"I am too young to be married," Fatma said. "I want to study. I want to learn how to write. I have sacrificed for my family," she continued, her voice dropping to a whisper.
Minutes later, her husband arrived at the tent, and Fatma went silent. He said Fatma was "at a good age to marry." When asked if she could attend school, he shook his head no. "Shes a little too old for school," he said.
Female sexual freedom among the Tuareg : Flora Drury has written up the sex habits of the Saharas Muslim Tuareg people based on the work by Henrietta Butler. Some excerpts:
Their men became known as the blue men of the Sahara because the dye from their distinctive indigo scarves rub off onto their faces giving them a mysterious air. The Tuareg evoke images of a long forgotten and romantic age.
