Product Import & Export

RazorCart > Import Export

The Product Import allows you to import new products or update existing products from an CSV file.  A good way to start the import is to enter a couple products using the UI and then export.  Exporting gives you a good sample CSV file to work with.  When importing your products the program will lookup products by SKU, if the product currently exists in the database the import program will update the existing product and if the product SKU does not exist the import program will insert a new record in the database.

Importing Product Images

Importing images is a 2 step process.  
 
Step 1 - Enter your image names (without path) in the CSV file
 
Step 2 - Upload your image files (jpg, png, etc.) to the following folders on the server where you have installed RazorCart:
 
Thumbnail Images - \portals\{0}\smithcart\thumbnails
Large Images - \portals\{0}\smithcart\images
Zoom Images - \portals\{0}\smithcart\zoomimages
 
You would simply replace the {0} placeholder with the Portal ID for your store.
 
Just make sure that the name of the image file In the "Image" cell of the spreadsheet for each product matches.
