I am trying to import my CSV catalog to my shop. Each product has 3 features. For example:

  • Type:New:0
  • Capacity:69ml.:1
  • PartNumber:X556D23:2

The import process finishes OK without errors... but then, just one feature (PartNumber) is shown on the page. Going to the catalog I can see the other two haven't been asigned to each product. If I add them manually, then that product displays well.

Any ideas why it is importing one feature and not the other two?

Is your CSV formatted properly? Can you add a part of it to your question? –  woony May 17 '13 at 11:42

I found the solution... They all need to be in one same field as multivalue (separated by commas). For example:

Type:New:0,Capacity:69ml.:1,PartNumber:X556D23:2

Hope this can be of help to anyone in the future.

It appears that the PrestaShop CSV import feature is very particular about the file format that it accepts. Here is a website that walks through all of the steps in detail with lots of tips about what can go wrong: http://www.tokyowebdesigns.com/advice/2465/prestashop-how-to-import-a-products-csv-file

They also have videos of the process available on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/gpgiuit/videos

Thank you very much, I didn't know about that page, although I was able to find the solution (posted). Thanks again! –  Jacobo Polavieja May 18 '13 at 9:24
