Your Assigned FTP Account

Your POS system uploads a catsync.zip file to your assigned SmartEtailing FTP account. This catsync.zip file contains two text files, inv.txt and loc.txt.

  • The loc.txt contains your store(s)'s name, address and contact info.
    • This is used to map your available inventory to the correct store location for your online catalog and Buy Local Now reporting on dozens of brand websites.
  • The inv.txt is a file containing the SKUs shared by your POS system, including pricing and availability (by location) for each SKU.

Here is what is typically seen when looking at the files on the FTP site:
