How to import product content in Shopify


After downloading your product content for your product range, you need to import this data into your own webshop. This article provides specific information on how to import data on webshops that are built on Shopify.

Importing products in CSV file

You have received a comma-separated values file (.csv) with data of your specific product range. This is the file you need to import product content of YOUR into your webshop. A clear overview has been created in the help center of Shopify to guide you through the data import process. 


Concerning the preparation of the CSV file, we only provide product content of the products. We do not provide other specifications within the file such as prices, stock or delivery time of the product. You need to add this data yourself to the CSV file you receive from us before you can start the import process

Below we have listed these articles. These are optional and provide some extra information before starting the actual import into your webshop.
