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.
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.
@AEmedia thanks for this tip!
FOLLOW UP Q - I did what you suggested, BUT it makes a bunch of MANUEL Collections without any products added.
I really need them to be SMART Collections.
Any suggestions on how to BULK import Smart Collections? (even better if you can also definite their smart tag)
