Import of data

You can find further information on importing, exporting and editing exported data in the article Import and export of data – overview. Information on the import of product images can be found in the article Import of product images.


You can re-import exported and edited CSV files into your shop. During this process, any changed data is transferred into the database associated with your shop. For information on editing CSV files, please read Editing exported data.

Before you import a file containing a large number of data records, we recommend that you run a test import using a file containing just one data record or only a few data records.
Any imports are carried out at your own risk. If you import a defective file, you could potentially destroy the data of your shop.
