Importing products with CSV

Charlotte Leth

Hi there,

I  am planning to create all my products by importing a CSV-file. This should run  smoothly, I have tried with a copy of an existing product.

Nevertheless, I  do not know how to create the data that is in the “meta:_swatch_type_options” column (your variation data) of the file. See link to file.

Can you help?

Yes – that is not what I am asking. Please read my ticket.

I am NOT asking HOW to import and export.

I am asking how to CREATE the content for the swatches field for all the new products that I wish to create and import. The swatches field contains data like:

 

{“296cc9a02b167493f6ff885c48ca71ff”:{“type”:”product_custom”,”layout”:”default”,”size”:”swatches_image_size”,”attributes”:{“9ce7db59eea14e1ed3269f64b8859a69”:{“type”:”image”,”color”:”#FFFFFF”,”image”:”6353″},”feffe4f53f3f87f4a69602436f1997bc”:{“type”:”image”,”color”:”#FFFFFF”,”image”:”134″},”a91e7679eb0f8e31694df99be892dab5″:{“type”:”image”,”color”:”#FFFFFF”,”image”:”132″},”b950cfada1457afa1515c86aac630af4″:{“type”:”image”,”color”:”#FFFFFF”,”image”:”135″},”499f3adc9e8477b77274b61c5ebdbc07″:{“type”:”image”,”color”:”#FFFFFF”,”image”:”133″}}}}

How do I get/create the long string data for new products and what is this data?

Hi Charlotte,

This option is not currently possible. But we are working to build this feature.

Thank You

Hello,

I cannot use the plugin without the import option, so I would like to request a refund.
