CSV File error

I am getting two errors while uploading my CSV which are listed below

  • Inventory policy is not included in the list.     (I have listed the option as "Shopify tracks this product's quantity")
  • Option value provided for unknown options

The second error can't be cleared for some reason.


I have attached my CSV below

Hi @RouhabJPR 

The value you must add in "Variant Inventory Policy" column should be "DENY" or "CONTINUE" only. 

CONTINUE: Customers can buy this product variant after it's out of stock.
DENYCustomers can't buy this product variant after it's out of stock.

Using the Shopify admin to upload spreadsheets requires that your file matches their format exactly, which can be a little tricky sometimes. I took a look at the file and was able to fix it by making the following changes:

  • The "Variant Inventory Policy" column should have the text "deny". (Or "allow" if you want to allow the product to still be sold when there's zero inventory)
  • The "Option2Value" needs to be renamed to "Option2 Value", the space in there is causing the issues

After making those changes the file appears to work:
