How do I use the bulk product import tool?
Posted by Al Brookbanks on 24 September 2007 10:43 AM

From the "Inventory" >> "Import Cataglog" section of the administration control panel of your store it is possible to import your product catalog from a CSV file of any format. CubeCart will provide a prompt for you to select a CSV file from your local computer. After upload you can choose with a dropdown menu to select which field you want to import it against.

Below is a table of the possible fields identifiers with notes and example data. If your CSV has matching column headers to those in the table below CubeCart will automatically match up the columns to the fields. If these are not found you can manually match them up. 

Column HeadersDescriptionAccepted ValueNotesExampleGenerated Automatically if empty
status Status Number 1 or 0 1  
name Product Name Text   X4 Quadcopter  
image Main Image Text Document root relative path from the images/source folder. Before CSV import all images much have been uploaded to this folder and the image database updated using the "Update File List" button in the images filemanager section of your admin control panel. It is possible to comma seperate multiple images.
