  • SKU (unique, product identifier)
  • Product name
  • Product category

2. Products will be placed in store categories. So, you need to create categories in the admin panel

categories for product import

3. Change the column letters to numbers in the price list and add the numbers in the supplier form settings.


4. Mapping product categories

In most cases, the product category name in the price list is not the same as our category.

We have to map the price list category to our category in the tab "Category and margin".

In this setting, we also have to set the image folder to download the images.


5. Start the process and reports
