How it works

Set up the add-on settings first.


The add-on creates the XML and CSV import page, where you can see a list of all created profiles with the ability to delete, edit, add, and import profiles.


Select a file, the file type you would like to import and set the other parameters.


Then select containers for categories and products.


Once containers are selected, the Category mapping and Fields mapping tabs will be available. Use the Fields mapping tab to arrange a list of fields included in the data feed. While in the Category mapping tab, you can match product categories from the XML or CSV file with product categories in your store. Link categories manually if they were not linked automatically.



The Cron tab contains the link to run the cron script automatically according to a schedule. Watch our video tutorial to learn how it is set up.


After all the parameters are specified, click Save the changes and them the Import button to run the import process. It may take some time. At the end you will see the Import completed notification.
