Inglese How to upload products to PrestaShop: step by step guide

If you are looking for an efficient way to manage the process of uploading products to your PrestaShop online store, this guide is the answer you were looking for.

We will guide you through the steps necessary to add, insert or upload your products quickly and without stress.

You will discover how Connecteed, the software designed for data feed management, can greatly simplify this task by automating the import, merge, modification and conversion of product price lists received from your suppliers.
 

Preparing product data for import into PrestaShop

The first phase of your work consists in identifying the sources of data acquisition of the product sheets that you want to import onto your PrestaShop online store. In parallel with this activity, it is also of fundamental importance to prepare all the necessary precautions to preserve any data already present on the portal and avoid any damage that could result from their loss.
 

Backup del database

Before starting any operation, the advice is to proceed with a complete backup of your PrestaShop database. This trick will allow you to restore the previous state in case of errors or problems during the loading process. Remember that all the data on your portal represents an important asset for your business and take the necessary measures for their protection and conservation.
 

Definition of the template and compilation of the CSV file

Mass uploading of product sheets to your PrestaShop ecommerce can be simplified by using a file in CSV format, organized in such a way as to contain the data describing each item according to the database specifications of the famous ecommerce CMS.
 

Choice of spreadsheet management tool

The first step involves creating a CSV file for your products. You can use a spreadsheet, such as Open Office Calc or Microsoft Excel, to create this file. Make sure the columns are properly organized, as they will be associated with the fields of your product catalog in PrestaShop.
 

Field names

It is important to decide what names to give to the columns of your CSV file. PrestaShop offers a list of fields available for importing products. For convenience, you can use the same field names that PrestaShop uses as column labels in your CSV. However, it is not essential to comply with them to the letter.
 

Image management

To import product images, you must first create or upload a folder containing the images within your website hosting. Make sure the path indicated in your CSV is correct and includes the file name of the image. For example, if the image is called "my_product.jpg" and is located in the "product_images" folder, the path in the CSV should look like "../product_images/my_product.jpg."
 

Exporting the file in CSV format

Now that you've filled out your spreadsheet with all your product details, it's time to export it to the correct CSV format. If you are using a program like Open Office Calc, follow these steps:

  1. click "file" and choose "save as."

  2. Select the CSV format.

  3. Make sure to select "change filter settings." This will allow you to customize your export settings.

  4. Set the font to UTF-8, the field separator to semicolons (;), and the text separator to double quotes (").

  5. Choose a name for your CSV file and click "OK."

 

Importing the CSV file into PrestaShop

Now that you have your CSV file ready, it's time to import it into PrestaShop from the back office. Follow these steps:

  1. Login to your PrestaShop back office.

  2. Go to "Tools" and select "Import."
     

Import configuration

  1. Upload your CSV file from your computer using the "File Upload" option.

  2. Select "Products" from the drop-down box.

  3. Please fill in all the necessary options carefully before proceeding.
     

Field mapping

A critical phase of the import is field mapping. Here you will have to manually associate the fields in your CSV file with the fields available in PrestaShop. Make sure they match correctly to avoid import errors.
 

Importing data

After completing the field mapping, click "Import Data" to start the import process. The time required to complete the import will depend on the quantity of products to be uploaded. For a large catalog (thousands of products) it may take several minutes.
 

Check and correct any errors

Once the import is complete, PrestaShop will show you a report with the details of the process. Review this report carefully to make sure everything went as expected. Some texts may be automatically rewritten or adapted during import. Don't worry about alerts of non-blocking issues, as these are alerts for small improvements useful for increasing the quality of your product sheets, but not essential for publishing the articles.
