Updating Products Using CSV

< Back

 

If you have a particularly large list of products you may find it easier to update them in bulk using a CSV file than to update them manually.

The easiest way to do this is to copy the products that you wish to update to a new CSV file.  You may include other products, but they will be processed as well which could greatly impact the overall processing time of the updated products.

Make any changes you wish to make to the product in the CSV file.  You can make multiple changes to any of the products in the CSV file.

 

Once you are ready to import your products go to the Import/Export page by clicking the Import or Export button while on the Product page.

 

The lower half of the Import/Export page is for importing your products.  By using a properly formated CSV file you can upload new products, or update existing products in your Sellware product database.

All you need to do is click Choose File, and find your CSV file, select your shop from the dropdown then click Upload and Import CSV File to process the file.

 

 

Once you have submitted the file for processing you will see a confirmation in a blue box at the top of your screen.

The process may take several minutes to complete, but you will see the Products added or updated on the Product screen while in progress.  You can also refresh the Import/Export page and it will show you when it has been completed.

 

Note: You should only do a full export once.  Afterwards you can add and update products by uploading smaller CSV files with the changes.
