What is Shopify?
Shopify is an ecommerce platform with tons of features to help you launch and manage your online store. It doesn’t require any coding or technical skills to get started. You can sell on Facebook, accept credit cards and use buy buttons on your blog or any website. There are several subscription packages for any stage of your e-commerce business. If you have a Shopify store then you can easily export jewelry piece information from JDM Premier Plus and import into Shopify.

Export Jewelry Pieces
In JDM Premier Plus you can export all your jewelry pieces as a CSV type file using the Report form. The Category, Piece Name, Description, Size, Retail Price and Number in Stock will be exported. You can modify the spreadsheet before importing if needed.
- Open the report form. In Report Groups select: Shopify. In Report Names select: Export Jewelry Pieces
- Select the pieces to export by checking the boxes to the right of each piece row. You can also click on Select All or open a Saved List of pieces.
- Click on: Export
You will now see the Export Records to File window. Follow the Shopify Export Instructions to give the file a name and type. Be sure to check the file name extensions and type.
The exported csv file will look like the one below. The Handle and Title are the Jewelry Piece Name, Body is Description, Vendor is your company name and Type is Category. We have selected “Deny” to not allow pieces to be sold if they are out of stock. You can modify the spreadsheet before importing or make changes in Shopify. Shopify has a bulk editing tool that allows you to make changes easily.
