Lesson 10: Bulk Importing Products

In this Virtuemart tutorial we show you how to bulk import product data using comma separated files (CSV). To manage bulk importing of products in Virtuemart we recommend the CSV Improved extension. Along with the CSVImproved extension, we will need the Virtuemart extension.

In our example, we are also showing you how to import custom fields, so we will need the CSVI custom fields extension. First we show you how to install the CSVImproved extension, and then how to set it up. Next we show you how to generate a template so it knows the format of what we are importing. 

We also show you what an import file looks like and bring you through the process of bulk importing new products into Virtuemart.
