Importing products into Your Store

Product import is a great feature to upload your products to Weblium store. You can use it when moving from another e-commerce platform or when you are just starting your store at Weblium and want to upload mupltiple products in a couple of clicks.

Product import

To start the product import, go to Your Store (1) and click Import (2).

In the pop up window you will be prompted to choose from the following options:

Weblium store (1). Choose this option if you intend to use the Weblium template. You can use it when starting with your store or when you are updating your products using the Product export. If you do not have the import/export template of Weblium, you can always download this .csv file by clicking the appropriate button (2);
Other platforms (3). Choose this option if you want to move from another platform to Weblium.

Editing the Weblium's import/export template

Tip: we recommend using Google Sheets to edit the file.

Let's take a look at the file's structure:

General product settings

(1) ID - read-only column. ID refers to the URL slug of your product;
(2) Variant - read-only column. Refers to the number of the product's variant. Each product has at least one variant, event if you haven't added any options yet. The row without a value is the base product, where you can edit the following columns: (3), (4), (5), (11), (12), (13), (14), (15), (16), (18). All other options should be edited in rows where the variant column (2) has a value;

Importing a file from another platform

Currently, we support the following platforms:

Note. Unlike other platforms, import from requires the YML file only. Learn more about how to get the YML file.

Please, follow the instructions on those platforms to download the templates. Once you downloaded the template you can upload it to Weblium, using the Other platfoms import options.

Note: for both Weblium template file and files from other platform the following restrictions apply: the file size should not exceed 10MB and the maximum number of products is 1000.

Important: if some of the other platform's product properties are not supported (they are missing in the Weblium's import/export file, correspondingly), they will be ommited during the import process.
