Values and value format that are editable in the CSV file:
asin: Unique Amazon code, given by Amazon
sku: Product ID
backdate: Yes/No - if you want to apply a product value to the past (example: if your products cost price simply has changed from today onwards, but it was set correctly in the past, add NO)
vat_type: Sets the default VAT type for all countries: "standard", "reduced" (refers to the regular reduced rate of a country), "reduced_alt", "super_reduced", "parking"
val: Products cost price. If the value is not an integer(is a positive or negative number ex: 4 or -20), the decimal separator must be a “.” (dot) character. (X or X.XX)
currency: The currency of the set value.
weight: product's weight. If the weight is not an integer, the decimal separator must be a “.” (dot) character. (X or X.XX)
comm_code: Official products commodity code
origin_country: Products origin, country of manufacturing.
vat_type_XX (COUNTRY): can overwrite a products "vat_type" in a specific country. (Example: If a product has a reduced rate in all countries except the UK, you can set the "vat_type" to "reduced" and add one column for "vat_type_uk" with "standard")
Only the ASIN is a mandatory field (primary key to identify a product), all other values can be left blank if they should not be filled.
