As an online retailer, one of the biggest challenges you might face is adding and managing multiple products on your Shopify store. While Shopify offers a user-friendly platform, it can still be a tedious task to add each product manually, especially if you have hundreds or thousands of products to import.

Fortunately, there's a way to streamline the process of importing bulk products on Shopify. In this article, we'll walk you through the steps of using the Apimio app to import products in bulk on your Shopify store.

Apimio is a powerful app that simplifies the process of bulk importing products into your Shopify store. With Apimio, you can easily import product information from a CSV or Excel file, including product names, descriptions, images, pricing, and more.

Here are the steps you need to follow to import bulk products on Shopify using Apimio:

Step 1: Install Apimio App

The first step is to install the Apimio app on your Shopify store. You can do this by visiting the Shopify App Store and searching for Apimio. Once you find the app, click the "Add app" button to install it.

Step 2: Create a Spreadsheet with Product Information

Once you've installed the Apimio app, the next step is to create a spreadsheet with product information. You can use any spreadsheet software, such as Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets, to create the spreadsheet.

The spreadsheet should include the following product information:

  • Product name

  • Product description

  • Product type

  • Product image URL

  • Product price

  • Product variants (if applicable)

Step 3: Upload the Spreadsheet to Apimio

Once you've created the spreadsheet, you can upload it to Apimio. To do this, open the Apimio app and on the dashboard, click the "Import Products" button. Select the CSV or Excel file containing the product information and click "Import."

Step 4: Review and Map Product Fields

After uploading the spreadsheet, you must review the product information and map the product fields to the appropriate fields in Shopify. This step is crucial as it ensures that the product information is accurately imported into your Shopify store.

Step 5: Import Products to Shopify

When your CSV import starts in the background, you will receive a popup of import started successfully; after a few seconds, refresh your page to show all the imported products.
Now, sync all of your given product details to Shopify by clicking on the sync button.


Importing bulk products on Shopify doesn't have to be a time-consuming and tedious task. By using the Apimio app, you can easily import product information in bulk from a CSV or Excel file, saving you time and effort. With Apimio, you can streamline the process of managing your Shopify store and focus on growing your business.
