I'd like to import 1000 simple products from my Excel spreadsheet up to my new website. I figure I can import the pictures later and just match them up.
So far, I manually uploaded 2 products to Shopify and then exported a nice CSV template.
Then I opened the CSV file on my desktop, copy and pasted a few items that basically say the exact same info but I can't seem to get Shopify to accept the import.
I keep getting errors like this ------Line 10-11: Validation failed: Invalid URL provided.
I also tried leaving any cells that can't be dulplicate info blank and it still didn't work....Any ideas?
CSV attached with top two items working fine....bottom 4 won't upload.
If you have exported as plain CSV, I'd be cautious when making manual edits - the CSV is extremely fidgety about everything right down to what specific quote characters you use etc. Try and export for Excel et al and see how that pans out - haven't had too many issues the few times I used it.
If you already have used the export for Excel and the import isn't working now after your edits - it really is a matter of experimentation then. I'd export 1 specific item. Then I would copy that and make the bare minimum of changes and do each change incrementally until you hit a problem. Then figure out how to work around the problem.
Sorry I can't be of more specific help!
