Step 2: Upload categories and products data to your website


1) If Step 1 was finished correctly, then you can see your new website in list, as displayed at pic.1
Click to website name and you'll enter to content management system of your web store. Almost all necessary settings already tuned in it. You must only load your categories and products CSV-files. This step, perhaps, most important in your online store creation, and ask you to be focused.



2) Management system has user-friendly interface, and you'll may know many more about it from our documentation. But first, on Manage categories page (at picture) you can upload your plain file with categories of products. What is "category of products"? For example, in our demo whisky web shop all whiskey's divided by groups - Scotch, Irish whiskey, Bourbon etc. Also, Scotch can contain subgroups, for example Islay Single Malt. All these groups are categories of products.
Parent category for all categories (root category) already will be created automatically, and named Our products. You can rename this category as you wish, but never delete it. All child categories will be displayed in left list on your website. These categories can contain nested categories.
Strongly recommended follow hints at this page and do not violate fields structure. You can see and use our demo whisky shop categories file as example template (cattemplate.csv in zip-archive). In the first row there is a header with field names (structure described as shown at picture and in documentation), it is not recommended to change it. Substitute in this file our values in other rows (> 1) for yours rows and upload result file to your web store. Acceptably to use HTML tags for text and string fields. Image files for categories you can upload at Step 3 later, here you must pointed only images filenames. Anyway, feel free to mail me or ask us about your problems at this step.

3) After successful uploading categories, at Manage products page (at picture) you can upload your plain file with products.
All products must be related with already uploaded categories by identifier (when you know this identifier) or category name.
Strongly recommended follow hints at this page and do not violate fields structure. You can see and use our demo whisky shop products file as example template (prodtemplate.csv in zip-archive). Substitute in this file our values for yours (except header) and upload result file to your web store. Acceptably use HTML tags for text and string fields. Image files for products you can upload at Step 3 later, here you must pointed only images filenames. Anyway, feel free to mail me or ask us about your problems at this step.
