FAQ

How to start with product importing in Magento
Our software will set a good base into product importing and flexible data management.
You just need a csv file or txt file from your wholesaler with product data with basic information like
unique identifier (SKU), Product title, description,  category name, price,  and image url in it.

The Universal Product Importer can easily re-write data from the original CSV feed to a full Magento XML format in seconds.
For several big wholesalers and dropshippers we have already mapped the related data colums. These import profiles will save you the time of mapping specific data e.g. try or created import profiles for Pixmania-Pro,  Sexdistributing Toys or Ingram Micro.

Can I create my own mark-up prices?

Yes, you can set your own custom margins on the products:
Both the price ranges as profits are customizable.

Examples:
Price range 1-10 will be converted to 10% profit.
Price range 10-100 can be converted to 5% profit.
Price range 50-1000 can be converted to 3% profit.

Will the Universal Product Importer import categories.
Since Magento still doesn't import categories from CSV's by default we also don't support this yet.
You can add them manually via the Magento Back-end and later rewrite the categories to corresponding category ID's to correctly map them.

Our software is also compatible with a free community extension that can import categories directly from CSV's.
The structure that can be imported is: Maincat/subcat1/subcat2/subcat3 

If you have an other layout than above please contact us for a custom (category) import service.

Which version of Magento do I need?
Our software supports Magento shops starting from version 1.0 and above.
