If you have a larger catalog, creating products one at a time in the admin can be time consuming. Thankfully, in Zoey there is also a way to create products using CSV files. CSV, or Comma Separated Values files, can be built in a program like Microsoft Excel, and when opened in Excel look just like a spreadsheet.
 
At the top of the spreadsheet lives your headers, which Zoey has a number of which can be used to provide all sorts of data for your Zoey products. Then each row will cover information regarding one such product.
 
If you have a lot of similar products with small variations, building a spreadsheet of information, saving it out as a CSV, and then importing it into Zoey may be the best choice. It can also be helpful if you already have a lot of data in an Excel or CSV format, as you can adjust it and load it much faster.
 
Learn more about the capabilities of the CSV file import, and how to best use it, from our latest video tutorial below:
