In the same way as you imported your CSV file for categories, you can now import your CSV file for products.
For instance, with the sample file for products:
First column. We marked it as "Enabled", PrestaShop presents "ID" as a header. Click on the header's dropdown menu, and select "Active (0/1)".
Second column. Marked "Name", header indicates "Active (0/1)". Let's change the header for "Name".
Third column. You get the idea.
The screen cannot display all of the columns in the table, so click the ">" and "<" buttons to see the other columns, and make sure to match them all correctly.
In our example, we used the first row for column names. Since we do not want these imported, enter "1" in the "Rows to skip" text field.
Once you are done matching your columns, click the "Import .CSV data" button (top right of the screen), and PrestaShop will start the import process. When the process is done, you are sent to the main screen, which should either confirm that everything has indeed been imported, or notify you of any problems encountered. In this second case, you should review your CVS file and make sure to correct everything.
Configuration can be a painstaking process if you cannot choose the order of the columns in your CSV file to match the one used by the PrestaShop import tool. For this reason, PrestaShop has a little tool for saving the order you have used with all of the dropdown selectors in the column headers.
The tool is a simple field at the top of the mapping tool. You can do the three basic actions (only one if there is no mapping configuration saved yet):
Saving. Enter a descriptive name in the field, and click "Save". The interface updates to feature the saved configuration in its drop-down list.
Loading. Select a mapping configuration from the dropdown list, and click "Load".
Deleting*. Select a mapping configuration from the dropdown list, and click "Delete".
