Vendor Tools (Export/Import products)
Export/Import products as CSV or XML files
The tools feature allows you to export or import your products along with their details. It supports .xml and .csv format files.
This module can be a great form of utility for both to keep backups of product data and upload data at any time.
Log in to your vendor account. Navigate to Vendor Dashboard→Tools.
Select the Import tab.
Importing as XML
If you want to import your data and information as XML, just select your existing .xml file by clicking on Browse. Then click the red Import button.
Your product information would be restored shortly.
NOTE: You must restore the image files for the products manually.
Importing Products as CSV File
To import your backed-up products as CSV, click on the Import button.
Choose the CSV file from the computer you want to import and click on the “Continue” button. In the next step, you will have to map columns and finally import. When the process is complete, you will get a confirmation message. Now you can check your products on the listing page.
Step 1: Map your CSV file against the column file
Step 2: Import will start
Step 3: View Products
NOTE: We strongly recommend not importing tags since tags are usually imported with an underscore, i.e. with a low dash instead of a space between words (for example, the tag “crochet baby blanket” will be imported as “crochet_baby_blanket”) and such tags will not be recognized by the system to improve the search for your products. Add your tags manually for each product making spaces between words. All tags with underscores, will be deleted from the system.
IMPORTANT: Immediately after importing the files, change the status of all imported products from “Online” to “Draft“. (See Product Bulk Edit).
Then edit each product individually: add photos, write tags, сheck if the product category is correct, and add the necessary attributes and individual shipping conditions, if any. For digital downloadable products, be sure to upload the file to the DIY Markt server (the file that customers will download after purchase).
After editing the products don’t forget to change their status to “Online“.
Log in with your vendor account. Navigate to Vendor Dashboard→Tools.
Export as XML
Select the option you need from All, Product, or Variation, and hit the Export button. A .xml file with all your product data will be compiled and downloaded.
A file like the following will be downloaded instantly, with your product data in XML form:
Keep the file in secure storage and you can use it later upon any accidental deletion.
Exporting Products as CSV File
Click on the Export button under Export CSV.
You will be taken to a new page to fill out the following fields:
You can either export all columns and product types or choose specific ones. Select to export all custom meta if you want.
After configuring, hit the Generate CSV button. You will get a processing screen and after completing a CSV file will automatically be downloaded.
A file like the following will be downloaded instantly, with all your product data in CSV format:
Save the file for later usage.
Use Import & Export feature directly from Products Tab
Vendors can also use this feature from their Product listing page.
