Can I bulk import categories?

Category import/export system

We have a category import/export system. Please follow the instructions in this help guide to find out how to use the feature.

Creating categories through the product import system

You can also create categories (and include category structures) as part of a product import.

To do so, you just need to include the new categories in the 'category' columns of your product import.

You can state category structures by including the full category structure in the import

For example, for a category structure of

Ladies Clothing
Party Dresses

You would write

Ladies Clothing > Dresses > Party Dresses

in the category column of your import file.
