What do all of the Product CSV headers correspond to?

Below is a guide of the different CSV columns that are present in a standard Product Export and how they relate to your products.

Note:
The following list represents the CSV column headers that are exported from your store during a typical product export. We are showing them here sorted in the exact order as shown in the default exported CSV file.

Along with each definition, we will specify the tab in which the setting may be found while viewing the product from inside the Online Store Manager.

Please be aware that not all exported columns can/will be used for importing data. Wherever applicable, we will mention these.


  • catalogid
    This is the item's database ID. It is created by the store.
    Should not be used for Importing CSV data. It is best to remove this column altogether.
  • id
    Corresponds to the product's ID/SKU
    Hint: Look in the Product's INFORMATION TAB
  • name
    Corresponds to the product's Name
    Hint: Look in the Product's INFORMATION TAB
  • categories
    Corresponds to the Cateogry the product resides in
    Hint: Look in the Product's INFORMATION TAB

A special note about Categories
There are certain formatting rules that come into play for how categories are shown in the CSV export.

  • If the product resides in only one category, the CSV export will reflect the category name in this column.
  • If the product resides in a sub-category, the CSV export will reflect it as "main category/sub-category" with a forward slash denoting the subcategory the item belongs to.
  • If the product resides in multiple categories, each individual category location will be separated with the @ symbol.

This is important to note because it may get somewhat confusing when reading the CSV export of a product that resides in several places at once. For example, if a product resides in "Category A", and "Category B" but also in Category A's sub-category "Sub-cat 1" all at the same time; the CSV record will read as follows:

Category A@Category A/Sub-cat 1@Category B

When naming your Categories, please be careful that you do not use symbols such as the forward slash (/) or the @ sign since these may be recognized by the import system as brand new categories.
