Price list

The price list is a file with data about all products you plan to advertise on Yandex.Market. The file must follow with the Yandex.Market guidelines.


Price list formats for Yandex.Market:

YML offers the most features and advantages. The CSV format contains elements similar to YML, but there are fewer elements to choose from. Excel format is viable if you are creating your price list manually.

Ways to draft a price list

You can make a price list using one of these methods:

Generate it using special software.

You can use special software (third-party or developed on your own) to:

  • Export data from your database and generate a file in the appropriate format.

  • Convert an existing price list to a file of the appropriate format and type.

This is a time-consuming method. Use this method if you plan to:

  • Place a wide range of products on Yandex.Market.

  • Update the data on Yandex.Market frequently and automatically.

Create the file manually.

You can create your price list manually. Use this method if:

  • You only plan to place a small range of products on Yandex.Market.

  • You don't have a way to automatically upload product information from your system in a format valid for Yandex.Market.

Ways to send a price list

You can send the price list to Yandex.Market using one of these methods:

Upload it in your personal account on Yandex.Market.

The maximum file size is 100 MB.

Publish the price list on your website.

The Yandex.Market robot will regularly download the file using the link you specified in your store account. This method allows you to frequently and automatically update your store's assortment on Yandex.Market (several times a day). For example, you can configure it to automatically upload your price list from a CRM or CMS.

The file should be uploaded by the Yandex.Market bot within 150 seconds from the moment it accesses the link. This is why we recommend that you regularly update the file when certain events occur (for example, each time that your store database is updated).

The file must be accessible via HTTP or HTTPS. If you use a Cyrillic link to your file, it must be accessible via HTTP.


We already have a price list, can we use it?

It probably won't work. The price list must conform to the Yandex.Market rules in a specific format (YML, CSV, or Excel).

Can Yandex.Market collect product data from the store's website itself?

No, it can't. Yandex.Market does not collect product data from your website. You need to make a price list yourself.

Yandex.Market can access your website and automatically download the price list you have prepared.
