The description of the fields are separated into:
- Data for matching / fields relevant for product classification
- Price and stock fields

Even though many of the matching and optional fields are not essential prerequisites for the listing, we would like to suggest that you fill in as many fields as possible in order to noticeably increase the quality of your ITscope listing.
Please keep in mind that many merchants import the data into their ERP systems and online shops. If your products are not correctly assigned and displayed, they will not be taken into account for exports.
The quantity and particularly the quality of the data you send to us is decisive for:
- Fast integration of your price list
- Better discoverability of your products
- Better matching of your products to our catalogue and categories
- More customers that can be won over for your products
- More customers that integrate you into their ERPs or online shops as a supplier
