    Hi Malcolm - I am no expert in Cloud POS - have not tried to import items before - but have you checked out the help files?

    String types mean text... decimal types are numbers... so the error sounds like you are trying to import text characters into a field that is expecting numbers only?

    Did you download the template provided by Cloud POS first and then enter data... any pricing etc - should not have $ signs - should just be numbers?

    if you want to email me the list you are trying to import - I am happy to have a quick look?  Send to [email protected]
