import " product features variants " in cscart 301 ?

Hello all,

I need to import product features variants .

It is a web-shop with spare parts for cars, and every feature(producer,ccm…) had many variants ,so it is difficult to do it manually .

some ideas ?


Hello victorb,

Thank you for your message.

In this case you can use the Import data feature. Prepare a .csv file and import it in your CS-Cart admin panel. The imported .csv file should look as follows (e.g.):

Product code;Features

“B00755AJUD”;“(Electronics) Operating System: S[Android 2.2, Froyo]; (Electronics) Display: S[3.1"”]; (Electronics) Storage Capacity: S[4GB]“

“W00769N690”;”(Electronics) Operating System: S[Android 2.1]; (Electronics) Display: S[3.1"“]; (Electronics) Storage Capacity: S[2GB]”

where (Electronics) is a name of a feature group, Operating System and Display - names of the features, S - type of the feature (in this case the type is Select box), Android 2.2, Froyo and 3.1"" - feature variants. In this case you do not need to create product features manually. Features with variants will be created automatically after importing the file and the variants will be assigned to the products according to the imported .csv file.

in my csv with products, in the “Features” column, I have features for each product in that format:

feature_name: E[feature_value]; feature_name: E[feature_value];

when I import the csv, it creates many feature names duplicates with blank value.

Do I have to first create the features and then import? Do I have include feature id?

please guide me to the right path on inserting features for each product.

thank you in advanced
