When you need to create a large number of products the standard product creation method can be slow and laborious. Using an import file makes bulk product creation quick and repeatable.

Add a Product
Each row in the product import file represents a product that will be created upon upload. Fill out at least the sku and name fields for each row and ensure that the headings for each column are present.
Save your product import file in CSV format when done.
