Do you read the documentation about the imports in HikaShop ?
You can find it here:
I did read the documentation several times but couldn't make it work. I am obviously missing somthing when I completed the import I had one product with no variations and I couldn't figure out how or where to put many of the columns of data provided from my supplier. I need to be able to take this file which will have about 1000 products in it and import it regulary to update and manage the products.
Thanks for your help!
To import products you have to:
1. create the categories (in the csv), if they don't already exists.
2. create the main product
3. create the variants.
Each variant type (color, size, ...) need a column.
You can find here an example of a csv ready to be imported. This csv contain a product without variants and one with variants.
On the right side of the csv, you can find the columns "color" and "size" (here for the example).
Before importing products with characteristics, you have to create the characteristics first in HikaShop.
Hope this will help you.
that looks completely confusing especially when relating to my data that I am using excel to save the csv file with. How do I take the file I receive from my supplier and use the data provided in the format you gave me? I don't mean to show my ignorance but it is just that. I can't figure out how I can translate my data into the usable format to accomplish what needs to be done.
I think the best way is to export the csv in the good format.
Another way could be to create a function to import the csv provided by your supplier, then organize the data with a php function, then export a new csv compatible with hikashop.
I gave you the format needed for a HikaShop import, now you have to organize data.
