Uploading CSV with Prestashop fields

Uploading CSV with Prestashop fields

I'm trying to upload a large csv(5000+ products) that I had sorted for Prestashop. All the category numbers are the prestashop category numbers and all the image urls relate to images already in my prestashop database and you appear to want text categories and new images uploaded. I also have columns for tags and whether the item is active or not which seem to be missing from your list. I also note that in your documentation you state that an In Stock field must be included but then you don't give an In Stock field as an option.

I thought with your product linking to Prestashop that all the csv fields would be the same but they're not.

Do I have to rewrite my csv? I bought the product to save me time not cause more work.

Hello Robert Parker,

Thank you for your post!

You see, Store Manager requires a specific .csv format.

Product import requires category names (specified in text) in order to avoid duplicates and confusion.

Concerning images. Store Manager operates with a new storage system offered by PrestaShop from version 1.4.3, where all images should be sorted in the appropriate subfolders (directory path generates basing on image ID).
Store Manager for PrestaShop allows you to import images from the local folder (you have to specify the exact folder on the hard drive of your PC) or from external source (image URL).
You're welcome to find more info about product import in the article below:

Also you're welcome to find a detailed instructions on how to import product images from local PC and external source in the following articles:
