Help! Product CSV File Upload Error: Validation failed: The variant 'Default Title' already exists.

I'm trying to upload a CSV file with 25 products; there are no options/variants for the products but most of the products do have more than one image. On my first attempt, 14 products of 49 uploaded successfully, but I cannot upload the remaining 35. I get the "Validation failed: The variant 'Default Title' already exists." for every line. The current file is formatted EXACTLY the same way; all I did was delete the rows with the successfully uploaded products. Anyone have a solution??

You'll need to remove the values from the columns I mentioned in my last reply. Once you have, the CSV will import successfully.

You don't have any values in Option 1 Name & Option 1 Value which is required as per our help document here. You will also need to fix your handles. Handles can contain letters, dashes, and numbers, but no spaces, accents, or other characters, including periods. Handles are used in the URL for each product.
