That is a breakdown of all the information that will be gathered  from the spreadsheet.
As you can see this can quickly make 1 product 100+ products.

The necessities you will have to include on the spreadsheet that are required.

Simple Products:
Product Category
Product SKU or UPC
Product Tag (Use The Manufacturer Name if you would like to list by product manufacturer)Product name
product description
Product weight
Product price
*Product Image Location and name (This has to be a physical image and not an image embedded on the spreadsheet. If you embed the image to the spreadsheet it will not work and break your website.)

Variable Product:

Product Category
Product SKU
Product Parent SKU
Product Tag (Use The Manufacturer Name if you would like to list by product manufacturer)
Product name
product description
Product weight
Product attributes
product variations
Product Position
Product price

*Product Image Location and name (This has to be a physical image and not an image embedded on the spreadsheet. If you embed the image to the spreadsheet it will not work and break your website.)

Attached will be 2 spread sheets one for simple products one for variable products as a sample example of how they must be laid out to import your products.

 

  • Product Images

On the spread sheet the last column will be for your product images.
here will be a link to the image.

 

HOW TO:

Create a folder name it My Website,  in that folder have your spreadsheet and another folder named images.

Download the image for the particular product to folder images. Be sure the name of the image matches the name of the product or product SKU for identification.
all Images should be in the .jpg format

The link to put in the images column for a product is :

./images/imagename.jpg

If a products variation each has a separate image then it must be listed on the variable under the image columb as well and included in the images folder.
