Usage

Adding Items

You should arrange items in your spreadsheet in the following order.

line-note | quantity | retailer | part-number

Line-note can be anything you like. I normally use schematic references. Retailer is a name of one of the supported retailers and part-number is the part-number specific to that retailer. See the example tsv.
In your spreadsheet select the relevant columns, copy and then click the paste button on the 1clickBOM popup.
Alternatively, if you visit a page that ends in .tsv and has data in the right format available 1clickBOM will show a blue badge and button with an arrow. Press the blue button in the popup and the data will be added. You can try this on the example tsv page once you have the extension installed.

Then What?

Once the data is added you can use 1clickBOM to add the items to your carts using the buttons on the popup. You can also quickly view and empty your carts.
