Why upload the same CSV file twice?

To create multiple products and generate QR codes in one go, we recommend using only 1 CSV file to prevent mistakes. The CSV file contains product information and SCM tags set up in the campaign.

The first upload is to create products in the Scantrust system.

The second upload is to update the SCM data to the products you just created.

Then you will download the QR codes with all the information that you wish the consumers to see.
