Import products into WooCommerce with the Product CSV Import Suite

WooCommerce gives you an option to import your products using the Product CSV Import Suite extension. In this article, we'll show you how to create a CSV file of your products, then import it into your WooCommerce store.

Downloading and customizing the sample products CSV file

First, you'll have to create a CSV file. You can find a sample.csv file in the plugin folder or download it here.

Adding products to your CSV file

With a sample CSV file in hand, add each of your products according to the columns listed. In addition to the columns provided by the sample CSV file, other fields may be set to import further information. For a complete list of all fields available, refer to the CSV import suite column header reference.

Additionally, product images can be imported, but will take a few extra steps. For more information on including images within your CSV import, take a look at the images section of the Product CSV Import Suite FAQ.
