When we try to input a large amount of product data, we don't want to input the data one by one manually because it will take more time and more effort. To input a large amount of product data at once, we provide you a feature that you can use as an option by using import and export products data with the .CSV file. This feature will help you to quickly input a large amount of product data at one time instead of doing it using manual add products.
You can try to follow the steps below for doing import products using the .CSV file:
