Before uploading the file, there are 2 options to consider.
- Exclude the First Row: select the checkbox if you have a header row
- Even with errors in the batch, Save coupons with no errors: This options is a mare choice of preference as some users prefer to fix errors and re-upload the whole file while others prefer to re-upload the corrected rows only. Checking the box will save any coupons that do not have errors and unchecking the box will save all coupons only if there are no errors.

To upload the csv file click the browse button, open your csv file and click the "Upload" button in the upper right corner. Any errors will be clearly displayed on the screen, and you will be notified of any savings.
You can view the successfully imported coupons in the Coupons screen.
