I have uploaded 33 products on my website today and received an email saying that the import was successful, but they aren't there when I searched them. I tried reuploading them again and I received another email saying that the products I was trying to upload already exists.
Is this some kind of server hangtime or error? Should I give it some time for it to show?

Once you successfully upload your products via CSV file, they should be there right away. Because your question is specific to your store, feel free to contact our support channels (either chat, phone, or email) and we'll be able to look at your store and help you sort this out.

Ive got similar issue. Importing file, got email confirming its done but not all products are showing. After doing it again few more items show up but only few. Did this like 6 times already and still got about 400 more products to import. everything in the file is correct. Anyone knows whats up with this? thanks
This is likely due to improper formatting of your CSV file. Check your email, you should get an email every time you import a CSV to your shopify store. It will explain the errors. In my case it was having the Option1 Name more than once—you can only have it for the first variation of each product, it should not be relisted for each variation. The column title also had a space between Option 1, it needs to be "Option1 Name"
Only the Option 1 Value should be listed for each Variant and space removed from Option 1:
