2.5. How to Import Products

  1. Navigate to Catalog -> Products and click "Import"

  2. If you would like to upload images with your products, you will first want to upload all of the images into your image directory. You will see a link on the import product page that says Click here to batch upload images. Click on that link and you will be taken to your Image Manager. Click batch upload and then select the images you would like to upload.

  3. You will also see a link to download a Sample CSV file. The easiest thing to do is download this file and then replace the sample information with your information. The top row tells you what information should be entered in the column below and if it is required or not (for example Product Name (Required), Attributes (Optional), etc). In the following rows you will see a few examples of how the information should be entered. Just replace these examples with your actual product information (in the same format) and save your updated document.

  4. Upload your updated CSV file!
