Column mapping during import data

All fields are assigned to a default column, although it is possible to match the fields with the columns existing in your file as your requirements.

For example, we assigned the below columns to the fields:

  • β€œProduct Id” (a column in our CSV file) to ID (A field in our plugin)
  • β€œProduct Title” (a column in our CSV file) to β€œTitle” (A field in our plugin)
  • β€œColor” (a column in our CSV file) to β€œAttribute name” (A field in our plugin)
map to field

When you assign those columns properly, you need to click on the β€œRun the import” button at the bottom of this page to go to the next stage.

In this stage, there is no need to do anything. Please wait to import data from your file.
