I am tring to import a list of product from another platform, this should be quite easy after having downloaded the template and competed it with my product's info.
iI there a way to upload a file with custom delimiter, otherwise my html code is going to be breaken into many pieces making impossible to upload the products correctly.
Is there any workaround to this problem ? I should really remove all the commas from my Body (HTML) field?
As long as you are using the sample product CSV file from this guide, or a product CSV export from your Shopify store, you should be able to use both commas and HTML code in your product descriptions, without issue.
If you do run into issues though, you should get an email after the CSV import is complete, with any errors that may have occurred. If anything doesn't make sense, don't hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com or through our live support channels.
Hope this helps :)
thank you, I was able to import most of my products using the tecniques you described.
It is a bit trick at first because the file must be in UTF-8 format and you should use text delimiter.
I suggest Open office Calc Rather than MS Excel, it was much more easy to handle Shopify's CSV using the former one.
Thanks for the help,
I'm having a similar issue, I've actually exported a csv file of all my products from shopify, changed all the shipping from false to true and re imported it. All products are imported and fine except that now there's an extra <p></p> wrapped around the content of my body(html) cells.
I'm using numbers on mac and exported it to csv utf-8
I just tried a Product CSV import with a test product that had '454g' in the 'Body (HTML)' column, and although it added <p></p> tags around the text, removing these later didn't affect how the product displayed on my website.
I then tested with '<p>454g</p>' in the 'Body (HTML)' column, and after importing, no additional <p></p> tags were added on to this. I got the same result when starting the 'Body (HTML)' column with different HTML tags.
You can try to use this app Bulk Import Export Update with Excel. It should nont add anything to the data you have. And you can import it from the Excel without converting into CSV.
