Is the order of items in a product feed important?

Am I right in thinking that the items in a product feed (the rows in a spreadsheet) do NOT have to be ordered in any certain way, e.g. sorted by ascending 'id' value?

 

I'm fairly sure this is correct, but just want to check before I start moving things around. Thanks.

yes -- order does not matter.

a best-practice is to use a mix of letters and numbers for id;
for example, abc123 -- especially if a spreadsheet is used.
