Registration Form

2 Click the + button to add a new import preset.

Registration Form

A preset is a set of rules on how to interpret an imported file. Once you configure a preset, you’ll be able to import multiple files of similar structure without the need to modify each of them separately.

3 Configure the import preset: choose a file (of CSV or XML format) that you’d like to import, and enter the name of the preset (you’ll use it later to find it among other presets).

Registration Form

4 Click Create.
5 Switch to the Fields mapping tab. This is where you tell CS-Cart how to interpret the imported file:
  • Match the columns or XML elements in the imported file with corresponding product properties in CS-Cart.
  • Check the example of imported data to see if the matching is correct. Make sure that the imported data follows the field format of the corresponding product property.
  • If necessary, add a few modifiers. Modifiers are functions that help you change the imported data. Use the Modifiers list button to find out what modifiers exist and how to use them.

Registration Form

6 Once you configure field mapping and modifiers, click Save. If you’ve done everything properly, you’ll now see that the examples of imported values have changed to take the modifiers into account.
7 (optional) Switch to the Settings tab. It contains settings related to import behavior.
  • Perform test import — enable this setting if you wish to import only the first five products from the file.
    That will allow you to check if everything is configured properly. Deleting or fixing 5 products should something go wrong is easier than dealing with 500 products after a full import.
  • Import strategy — choose whether to import all products or only some of them:
    • Import all products from the file — new products will be created, but if a product already exists (the existence is determined by product code), then it will be updated instead.
    • Update existing products only — skip any products that don’t exist in your store; only products that already exist will be updated.
      This strategy is convenient if a supplier provides a file with all his products, but you sell only some of them. That way you won’t get unwanted products in your store after the import.
    • Create new products only — skip any products that already exist in your store; only products that don’t exist in your store will be imported.
      This strategy is convenient if you change some product data (such as description, product name, etc.) after the import. That way your changes won’t be lost if you need to import the data from that supplier again.
  • Set quantity of all products to zero — enable this setting if you want the quantity of all the products in your store to be set to 0 during the import.
    Only the products that have a quantity specified in the imported file will have a different quantity.

Registration Form

There are three Additional settings hidden by default:

  • Delete existing files of downloadable products — if you enable this setting, then importing downloadable products will delete their existing files.
    When the setting is disabled, importing a file of a downloadable product doesn’t replace the existing files, but rather adds it alongside them.
  • Delete existing additional images — if you enable this setting, all the additional images of a product will be replaced with the images specified in the imported file.
    When the setting is disabled, importing additional images for a product doesn’t repalce the existing additional images, but rather adds new images alongside the existing ones.
  • Delete existing attachments — if you enable this setting, then the existing attachments of the imported products will be replaced with the attachments specified in the imported file. If no attachments are specified, the old attachments will remain.
    When the setting is disabled, the new attachments will simply be added to the existing attachments.
8 Click Import. If your preset is configured properly, and the data in the imported file is correct, your products will be imported.
Note: After the import you can go to ProductsProducts and use the Recently updated saved search to see all products that were updated within the last hour (alternatively, you can use Advanced search). This will help you check the import results.
Why post products as a bulk upload?

Uploading products with the bulk upload tool saves you time by removing many steps in the product upload process. This is ideal for sellers who already manage their products using spreadsheets, or can easily export their product catalog into an Excel spreadsheet from another marketplace. The alternative, individual product posting, is a more manual process.

What is MOQ on

Some suppliers will list the MOQ for the product directly and some will not. It is kindly advised that you could confirm with the supplier about MOQ before ordering the products.

Why my product is always in Approval Pending?

After you post a new product, our related colleagues will take about 24-48 hours to audit it. Upon approval, it will be listed on in 2 x 24 hours. Please note that auditing can help our sellers to post products in a good manner. Therefore, please just have a wait for the approval.
