Exporting and Importing a product CSV produces errors

Problem

Exporting a product CSV and importing it back in again produces upload validator errors despite being the original data that was in the system.

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC

Cause

This occurs because the data stringency requirements have gone up since Vend started. The reason for this is that allowing bad data into the system causes a lot more problems than it resolves. This means pre-existing data that is currently in the system does not meet the current data stringency requirements. 

Solution

You can resolve this issue by downloading the file and working through each of the marked issues:
