Another stinkin' froogle question...

Okay maybe more than one...if you can give me a link that would be fine.

Am I correct in assuming that we can no longer auto upload from Etsy?

Froogle wants descriptions and says it should appear the same as on our site...does this means the whole thing. Excel doesn't like multiple paragraphs.

IS IT WORTH IT?

Thank you for reading. Again, I know this has been discussed but my computer still likes to lock up in Etsy forums so if you have a direct link to a past thread that answers these questions...I'd appreciate it.

Yes, I believe we cannot upload from Etsy automatically anymore. I have some of my items on Froogle. Does it help? I don't really think so, but I guess it doesn't hurt.

If you need help, you can send me a convo. :)
the description has to be exactly the same as in ETSY's but minus the paragraphs. You can paste into word, delete the paragraph divisions then paste into excel. :) time consuming process..
Another option for your paragraphs.

Enter your paragraph into Excel, say in column A1. In column B1 enter =TRIM(A1). This will clean up your paragraph of any extra spaces, hidden characters, etc...the kind of things that screw up Froogle uploads.

Now, highligh column B, hit Copy & then Paste Special as Values. This will eliminate your formulas.

Now, take it one step further, in column C1, type =Proper(B1). This will clean up the text...adding capital letters where appropriate, correcting punctuation, etc.

Now, highligh column C, hit Copy & then Paste Special as Values. This will eliminate your formulas.

You can now delete column A & B. The column C data is in Froogle-ready format.

Good luck,
Bill
