You can create more than one product at once by importing a list of products from a .csv file. The product importer is a widget that you place a page, which you then open in a browser and select the .csv file to be imported. Once you have uploaded your file, the product importer widget reads the values from your file and inserts them in the database. The Product Import is deployed as a NuGet package, which you import using NuGet. NuGet is a Visual Studio extension that makes it easy to install and update third-party libraries and tools in Visual Studio.
RESTRICTIONS: Using the product uploader, you can import only top level departments and you cannot upload custom classifications.
To import products, perform the following:
NOTE: You must have created all product types and custom fields of your products. The order of the columns in the .csv file and the order of the fields in the product types must be the same. For reference, use sample .csv files provided in the .zip.
