Importing and exporting a catalog

You can generate a productCommerce: various forms of merchandise that you can display and purchase from the public site, including products, variations/SKUs, bundles, packages and dynamic packages. catalogCommerce: a top-level container for catalog entries such as categories, products, and variants (SKUs). from an external system and then import it into Episerver Commerce.

When to import or export

When you set up a new e-commerce site, you need to get the products into the system. You may also need to import a product catalog when new products are added to an external system's catalog. Or, you want to move or copy existing product catalogs between websites. While you can manually create a catalog and add catalog entries, that option is less useful of you have a large catalog.

Import or export methods

Depending on the import or export setup, you may need to manually edit the information for the imported products (such as adding images, documents, and associations) and their variations to be complete.
