Import and export of data – overview

You can import and export various types of data associated with your shop, such as products or categories.

Importing and exporting are especially suitable for creating a backup of your shop’s data or for adding a large amount of data in one go. If, for instance, you want to add a large number of new products, you can use the Export and Import feature in combination with a program such as LibreOffice Calc. This way, you won't need to add each product separately in your shop administration. In addition, exporting can also be very useful for processes such as moving data to another system, for example an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.

The data is exported as a CSV file. This is a simple text file in which individual words are separated by a pre-set delimiter (such as a semi-colon or comma). Each entry is shown as one line in the file.
