Importing the spreadsheetBack to top
Once you complete the spreadsheet and add all the products you wish to import, it's time to go ahead and import the CSV file into your account.
Click on the Choose File button, select the CSV file from your device, and then click Submit.
Mapping the spreadsheet columnsBack to top
When the spreadsheet uploads, you need to map the data columns to the matching fields in your system.
You only need to map the fields you wish to import. If there's a particular column you don't wish to import, then don't select anything from its dropdown menu. Note that SKU and Product Name are required mapping fields.
Once you select all the fields, click Import. You are asked to confirm the action.
To continue, click the red Import Now! button. If you want to make changes, then click on the No, I need to fix something! button instead.
If everything goes according to plan, then you receive a success message. Click OK to continue.
Should the import not be able to complete, then you receive an error message. Adjust the information in the CSV file based on the error message details and try the import again.
