In your  , you are able to Export and Import your store products using CSV/Comma-Separated Values file. The feature is useful for uploading new products or updating information about existing products in bulk. 

All imported files must be saved in a CSV format. If you try to import a non-CSV file, e.g. xls, you will receive an error showing that you can only upload CSV files. Please be very careful that the data entered should be as per the exact format mentioned, else there is a chance the file might crash. For help, contact your support team.

You can download an example CSV file as a reference on how it should look here - Yourstore's Products Demo CSV.csv
