What can I import from my old online store?

Information can be imported from old online stores to make setting up your new ASPDNSF site easier and faster.

Old information can be imported from XML files or Excel files. The info must be in the format laid out in the sample files at the link below.

The XML import can handle product data, manufacturers, categories, departments, and customers. The Excel import is products only.

The import functions are accessed through the admin site, at Products->Import (from Excel) or Products->Import (from XML).

To use the bulk import files to UPDATE products instead of creating new ones, the Product Name and the Product SKU in the new import files much exactly match the name/SKU of existing products.
