You can upload a CSV file in Creatopy through the Feed Ad builder. You can make multiple ad versions using CSV files simultaneously, saving time for ad designs. In the CSV, you can store data such as product name, image, headline, body text, CTA, target URL, etc.
We recommend using spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets for better data visualization.
Specific requirements need to be met when you upload or source the CSV to Creatopy, and you'll be able to find them below.
CSV upload requirements
- Include a column header row.
The first row of the CSV will be treated as a column header row, which will bind your content categories to the elements from your design.
You can add data such as Product Name, Product Image, Headline, Body Text, etc.
- List each item or product on its row.
On each row, you should describe a variation of the item you'd like to showcase in the design.
- Choose images of the same size and orientation.
If you're using images for your ad variations, ensure that the images have the same size and orientation and the objects in them have the exact placement in the picture.
- Use a protected source for your image files.
Ensure that your image files are served from an SSL-protected source. This can be easily spotted by checking if the protocol has an "HTTPS://" value instead of "HTTP://" in its URL.
- Check the file format and encoding.
Save the spreadsheet in COMMA SEPARATED VALUE (CSV) format, with a UTF-8 Unicode Text encoding.
- Maximum file size.
The maximum accepted file size is 1MB. However, you can bypass the file size by serving the CSV via URL.
