3rd Party Orders

The 3rd Party Orders file is a CSV (comma separated variable file). If your orders file is in Excel please save it as a CSV before you import. Each row/line in the Order file is a line item in an order. All the orders in a file have to be from same source/website. It is important that the columnName exactly match the columns name in the attached spreadsheet or in the document below.
