Product Import

This section is dedicated to import procedure from supplier website. First time the page is loaded, if all configurations are correct, will be shown a paged table containing all products available on the supplier.


This table can be filtered in many ways to select only requested products to be imported. Filters can be applied using Search button on the top right corner of the table.

Using Reset filters button the initial situation can be restored.

Note: Filters remain applied even if you navigate other pages of your Magento backend!

Columns shown in table are:

Interface gives possibility to filter by: Imported, Brand, Category, Subcategory, Product code, Availability, Partner Product and Temporary Sale. Whenever products to be imported are filtered (Search button has been pressed and table has been reloaded), it is possible to select products to be imported with the checkboxes on the left side or clicking on Select Visible to select all products in the current result page. To import selected products choose Import action from dropdown menu on the top right corner of the table and press Submit in order start the import procedure. From the 1.0.0 version, the enlisted products are queued in a special database table and imported every 5 minutes in batches of 30 elements. You can track the progress of the procedure in the status page.

Product structure

If Product Type is set as Grouped (by the configuration page), supplier products will be imported as a grouped products which will be shown on the website and a number of simple products associated to that grouped one, which are not visible on Magento website, and they can be chosen in product page basing on size attribute (information from the supplier website).

If Product Type is set as Configurable, supplier products will be imported as a single product with a drop-down lists of options for each variation, in which each option is actually a separated simple product with a unique SKU, which makes it possible to track inventory for each product variation.

Advice for version before 1.0.0: The import procedure on version 0.9.2 or before could take a long time if executed on a large number of products (more than a 100) and it could result in a 500 error from the webserver due to request timeout. It is highly recommended to upgrade to 1.0.0 to solve this issue.
