  1. Set up import settings:
    • Prepare .csv file - Please, make sure that your .csv file contains all necessary fields and all data you need. If your vendor provides you with the product list in Excel, you can convert your Excel files to the CSV format within the Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice application by using the "Save As" option. You can then access the Save As dialogue box which contains a list of alternative file formats. Among the offered file extensions, you can find Text CSV file format. By saving your file into CSV format, Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice will export the first active worksheet with the correct delimiters.
