What Are The Default Product and Customer Export Sets?

Beginning with version 8.1, the product and customer CSV export functions will contain two pre-built export sets:

  • Default
    This will create an export file with only the more important column headers in order to make it a smaller file. This can be useful for situations where you have a large amount of data to export and - rather than having the CSV contain ALL the data - the default option will export only those columns which are most needed.
  • All Fields
    When selecting this radio button, the CSV file will generate with all of the available columns included. Keep in mind however that the generated file may be very large, depending on the size of your store's database.

Default Columns

Product CSV Export
For the Product CSV export file, the default export will contain these vital columns:

  • catalogid
    This is a unique database ID that will be used to keep track of each product in the backend of the system. This is not the same as the productid.
  • id
    It is the unique product id (SKU or Part Number) of the product.
  • name
    This is the name of the product.
  • image1
    This is the path to the main image used for the product.

    The price of which you sell the product to the customer.

  • description
    This is the short description of the product. This is displayed in the Search page only by default.
  • keywords
    These are additional keywords used by the Internal Search of the site. This is also used in the dynamic Meta Tags for the product pages; the system will automatically generate Meta Tags using the NAME, EXTENDED DESCRIPTION and KEYWORDS of your product. These keywords do not show on the website to the customer.
