Import CSV PrestaShop

1. Download the three options (categories, products, combinations)

2. In your PrestaShop you must:

A. We start importing categories

In the menu on the left look for "Advanced parameters" --> "CSV import".

  • We load the file
  • If we want to delete everything we currently have on our loan we must check if we want to "delete all categories before importing". If we leave NO, we will keep what we have.
  • If we check YES in "omit the regeneration of thumbnails" takes less time to do the dump but then you have to regenerate them from the BackOffice. In the long run it takes the same.
  • "Next step"
  • In the table that comes out you have to check column by column, that the first line coincides in name with that of the filters. If they do not match, choose the correct option.
  • Note: The "ID" field must be "IGNORE THIS COLUMN" if we want to keep existing items.
  • "Import CSV" field

B. Now we have to import "Products"

  • In this case we must say YES in "use the reference of the products as a key".
  • "Next step."
  • We double-check that the data matches
  • "Import CSV"
  • Note: The "ID" field must be "IGNORE THIS COLUMN".

C. Finally we import the combinations

  • We load the file of we leave marked the same thing that in the previous option.
  • "Next step"
  • We double-check the columns
  • "Import CSV"
  • Note: The "ID" field must be "IGNORE THIS COLUMN" if we want to keep existing items.

NOTE: THE "ID" FIELD MUST BE "IGNORATE THIS COLUMN" IF WE WANT TO KEEP EXISTING ITEMS:

It is very likely that PrestaShop will fail, the connection will be cut in the middle of the import, that does not upload any of the files well... don't worry, keep doing the import, be patient, it takes about 5 minutes the first time All exports and imports are tested and proven. We too have failed in the middle of the import and the thing to do is to do it again.

This is the most common error that usually gives:

It is possible that another type of error. In that case contact your web provider to report the error and propose a solution.

Why does it fail? Prestashop is an unstable platform in some respects.
