How to Import Products in Bulk With SureCart

In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of importing products in bulk with SureCart.

By following the steps of this article, you can easily import many products at once into your SureCart store so you don’t have to spend time in creating products manually.

Let’s dive right into it.

Preparing Your CSV File

To import your products through a CSV file, you need to prepare a CSV file with the information required to create a product in SureCart.

Here’s a template CSV file that you can refer to and create your file with product information.

CSV File Sample

In the template file, you will find all the fields you need to have to import the product data.

You have two options to start with your product data.

Option one: You can use your own file that has all the product information. Just make sure to change the headers in your file to match the headers of our template.

Option two: If it’s easier for you, just copy the information from your file and paste it into our template. The most important thing is to make sure the first row with the column headers matches correctly. For example, put the slug data in the column labeled “slug,” and do the same for other information in their respective columns.

Please note: The required fields are the ones that contain an asterisk (*) next to the header. In the above example, the required fields are Slug, Name, Currency, and Amount. If you don’t fill the required fields, importing will not be successful.
