Importing Categories

Importing Categories

Using the import/export feature in Shopit, you can now import your category listing quickly and simply, before rearranging it later.

Create your Categories List 

  1. Create a simple spreadsheet.
  2. The first line will be ignored as Shopit expects this to be 'Category Name' or something similar.
  3. List all your category names
  4. If you enter them as though they are nested, it will make reordering them easier later



Importing your Category List

  1. Go to Settings > Import/Export > Import Categories
  2. Choose the Sales Channel you wish to import them into
  3. Browse and attach the css file
  4. Import
