The importing of products on your store is a process which will allow you to import large quantity of products directly onto your Store so you can avoid the part where you will configure each one of those manually. This is particularly useful when you are moving your Store from one website to another or if you just find it more convenient to first define the products into a CSV type of file instead of creating them one by one.
In the next few lines of this tutorial we will provide you with detailed information on the whole process of uploading a CSV file and configuring the products added by that file to your Store.
Before you can actually upload the CSV file you will need to configure few settings which we will discuss bellow. First however, you will need to access the Importing page where all this can happen. In order to do so you will need to access the Back Office of your Store and to navigate to Advanced Parameters → CSV Import.
Then you will be presented with the page where you will need to actually configure the import before you can upload your CSV file. All the configuration process will be reviewed in the next step of this tutorial.
When you access the Importing page you will notice few configuration options that will need to be configured before you can proceed with the actual upload process. Let's review them:
Whenever you are ready with the configuration feel free to use the Next Step button which will move the importing to the next step. There you will be presented with a list of the products you are about to import and after pressing the Import .CSV data the CSV will be imported. Once the process is finished you will be provided with message indicating the success.
Congratulations! You can now import products to your website from a CSV file!
