Import Products

In this document, you’ll learn how to import products into your Medusa store.

Overview

To import products, you must have the products in a CSV file. You can see a template of the CSV file during the import process.

When you import products into your Medusa store, you’ll either create new products or update existing ones.


Import List of Products

To import products:

  1. Go to the Products page.
  2. Click on Import Products at the top right.
  3. In the new window:
    1. If you’re unsure of what the CSV file’s format must be like, you can download a template CSV file by clicking the trashtrash icon.
    2. To upload the CSV file you want to import products from, either:
      1. Drag and drop the file into the dashed box;
      2. Or click on the dashed box and choose the file you want to import the products from.
    3. After you upload the CSV file:
      1. You can check the number of products to be created or updated above the uploaded file’s name.
      2. You can remove the file you choose by clicking the trashtrash icon.
  4. Once you’re done choosing a file to import products from, click on the Import List button.

This starts the import status. Based on the number of products you’re importing, it can take some time.
