Using the Sitefinity API, I would like to show you how you can import products into Sitefinity Ecommerce.
The product importer is actually a widget that is placed onto a page. Once the page has been created, bring up the page in a browser and follow the instructions to upload your file of products to import. Once you have uploaded your file, the product importer widget reads the values from your file and inserts them into the database. The latest version of Product Import(Product upload widget) is available on github https://github.com/esitefinity/Sitefinity-Ecommerce-Product-Upload and the code behind utility classes that are used by the widget and that you need are available also on github here https://github.com/esitefinity/ProductUploadPackage. We highly recommend using the latest version available from github. There is a NuGet package as well but it is possible that it is outdated.
In the example I am using a .csv file as my data input. The format of this file has been created such that you can add many custom product type fields at the end of the file. Here we are only going to create two custom product type fields, CustomProperty1,CustomProperty2.
Once you have NuGet installed, please follow the following installation steps.
I have created a video showing you how to install the Product Upload package using NuGet, add a widget using Sitefinity Thunder and upload your .csv file.
