Associating Products with QR Codes in Bulk

Note: this process is only recommended for companies who utilize the codes in a non-serialized fashion - meaning all items of the same SKU have the same QR Code.


Step 1 - Create the Upload File

  • This can be done via excel
  • Open excel and save it as CSV file:


  • Your "Code Association File" should have these headers:
extended_id product
  • Under extended_id paste all the Extended IDs (paste special --> Values)
  • Under product enter the SKU, this can be found in the SKU field in our platform: 



  • Here is how your Excel file needs to look:



Step 2 - Uploading the Association File

  • Login to the Scantrust portal
  • After logging in, click on the hamburger menu at the top left corner of the screen
  • In the slide-out menu click on: Campaigns
  • In the campaigns window, you can view all the campaigns that have previously been added
  • Then, Click on the: "Option Panel" action button in your campaign on the top right of the campaign field
  • You will arrive on the redirect screen inside the campaign settings
  • In the campaign menu bar, click on: "Codes"
  • Click on: upload 'SCM Data by CSV
  • In the pop-up window click on: "Choose File"
  • Select the file you wish to upload
    • If your file type is CSV, which stands for comma-separated value, the delimiter is a comma and this is set by default
    • If your file is using a different delimiter please input it
      • NOTE: All templates provided on the ScanTrust platform are CSV files
  • Click on: Next
  • You are shown all the headers that can be found in the file you have just chosen to upload
  • Select 'extended_id' as the unique identifier for your file
  • Click on Start Upload

If all goes well, you will see the pop-up that tells you that all codes have been updated successfully.
