Importing products into your account using comma-separated values (CSV) files is useful when you need to create multiple products. This feature is also useful when switching from another platform, as it allows you to import all active products at once.
When you import products, the data is converted from the CSV file into products under Inventory.
- From your admin account, go to Products under the Inventory module
- Click the three dots (…) in the top-right corner
- Select Import Products
- Then, select Import Products from a CSV file
- And hit, Next
- To get started, download our spreadsheet template file and fill it up with your products and variants information, including product name, description, options, variants, their different prices, and much more.
- Once you made the desired changes to the spreadsheet file, click next and you will be able to upload your products into Qoblex.
Your product CSV can’t exceed 2MB. Consider splitting your CSV files into multiple chunks if you have a large number of products to import.
