The MercadoLibre CBT Flat File is a methodology that allows sellers to interact with MercadoLibre Cross-Border Trade Platform by uploading and receiving flat-files.
We refer to a flat file as a file in which tabular data is structured in lines of text with the value from each table cell separated by a comma and each row represented by a new line. Flat files are also called comma-separated values files (CSVs) and can be generated by a seller's enterprise resource planning (ERP) system or by spreadsheet software such as Excel.
Using Flat File sellers can
We recommend Flat File for sellers who have deeper levels of inventory (i.e., a larger quantity of the same SKU).
The Flat File system is asynchronous: sellers need to provide visibility into inventory as often as possible to avoid overselling (resulting in out-of-stock items). Sellers who work with shallow levels of inventory face a higher risk of overselling, which affects their reputations. For those sellers, we recommend directly integrating with Flat File through our APIs or leveraging a third-party integrator such as Channel Advisor or Channel Sale.
