Changing product handles

HI EVERYONE,

 

I AM HAVING A PROBLEM UPLOADING NEW PRODUCTS AS MANY OF THE HANDLES ARE OVERLAPPING.

 

IN MY STORE WE SELL 1 OFFS AND THEREFORE HAVE A LARGE INVENTORY. THEREFORE I NEED TO MAKE EACH HANDLE DIFFERENT TO ENSURE I CAN UPLOAD NEW PRODUCTS WITHOUT PROBLEMS.

 

I HAVE USED THE CSV UPLOAD TO CHANGE ALL PRODUCT HANDLES, HOWEVER I AM SCARED THAT ONCE I REPUPLOAD THIS INTO SHOPIFY IT WILL DUPLICATE ALL PRODUCTS ON MY STORE AS ALL THE HANDLES HAVE CHANGED.

 

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INFORMATION THAT MAY BE ABLE TO HELP ME WITH MY PROBLEM.

Thanks.

 

This is what I have done. I have added the SKUS to the end of the current handles. However, now that all the handles are different from what they once were surely shopify will think that they are new products?

 

And therefore I will have duplicates of every product when I upload them back in.

 

Please see image below.

Hi @calvinclifford,

We understand the issue you are facing while importing product CSV.

Here is a solution for this issue: When you upload the CSV file, make sure to check the option to overwrite products with matching handles. This way, the product handles will not be duplicated again.
