Product Import Reference

Last updated 18/02/2021

Overview of the fields in the product import spreadsheets.


This is a reference for all three product import templates. These templates are to be used as guides and provide basic examples using a minimal number of fields. You can import into any field in the Product module; simply include it in the spreadsheet as a column to include it in the import. You will need to match your additional columns yourself after import, however.

The templates are:
