I have built out an entire test site for a client with numerous collections and now I need to simply export and import into the official account for the client. 

I would be grateful to receive instructions on how to do this. I'm sure it's quite simple and been needed before, but I didn't see anything in the admin section.

Thanks!

Collections are not part of the bulk import/export

Either set them up manually in the real store... 

..or you could write a script that uses the API to capture the products in the collections, and the collections, and then use that script to re-create the scenario in the new production shop.

Hi, Gustavo and others!

 

You can use this app to import Collections - and even import them with Rules as Smart Collections, or import Custom Collections and attach Products to them in that same import.

The app is this: https://apps.shopify.com/excel-export-import

 

I have made this app, so if you have any questions or need assistance, feel free to ask.

Couldn't find any way to just import collections with their tool. Does that always have to happen in conjunction with a product import? What happens if you don't have the collections set up first in the store? I'm looking for an easier way to set up collections in the store instead of one-by-one.
