Hello, I'm trying to import a bunch of products but am getting this "You need to add option values for Title" error when doing so. I have text for every row of the CSV in the Title column so I am confused. Here's what the output looks like:

Hope someone can help. Thanks!

Hey, Rich!

Savannah here from Shopify. 

It's hard for me to tell without seeing the actual CSV, but it sounds like you need to enter variant titles for columns H and I (aside from the actual Title column), like this

If that doesn't do the trick, feel free to screenshot your CSV!

Thanks Savannah. Title and Default Title in those columns did the trick!

Hey, Usama!

Savannah here again. :) 

It's a bit tricky for me to see what's up without seeing the actual CSV file. Would you mind uploading the CSV to the Settings>Files section of your admin, and then sending me the link to the file once it's uploaded?

Sometimes this error occurs because Option 1 Name needs to have the word Title assigned and Option 1 Value needs to have the phrase Default Title assigned, like this.

Let me know if that does the trick!

Hi!

Needed some help in importing a CSV file to my Shopify store. Though I have uploaded successfully a CSV product file with the same process to another Shopify store, I am not being able to do so for this store.

I am getting the following error.

Please fix the following errors:

Line 2-4: Option value provided for unknown options.

A part of the format I want to import is attached with this mail.

Thanks & Regards,

Rakesh

@Rakesh You need to fill in your Option1 Name (column H in your screenshot).

Hi Savannah,

I'm also in desperate need of help. I've already spent hours and hours trying to sort this out but I also only get Validation failed: You need to add option values for Size. This is rather silly and frustrating.

I've uploaded the file I'm trying to import (although it's a shorter version as I was trying to eliminate every possible cause to this issue).

I have emailed the link to the file to support@shopify.com ticket number is 12384376

Thank you.
