The best way to manage your online store product catalog is by using a CSV file of your products and importing it to your HostPapa Website Builder Online Store. You can create this type of file using a program such as Microsoft Excel. The file lists all the products you sell, as well as all the properties such as price, description, weight etc.

The easiest way to import a CSV file with a list of your products is to first create a product in your store, and then use that as the basis for the CSV file you would like to upload. Here’s how to do this:

  1. Log into My HostPapa Website Builder.
  2. Click on Online Store in the top menu.
  3. Click the pink Add/Edit Products+ button.
  4. Click New Product.
  5. Add a new product.
  6. Click Save and then click Back to the Beginning.

All you need to do now is export this product to your spreadsheet editor, add your products and upload the CSV file to your online store. Here’s how to do this.

  1. Click on the check box next to the product you have just created.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Export All.
  3. In the menu that comes up, select Semicolon as the delimiter.
  4. Click on Download CSV file and open it in your spreadsheet editor.
  5. Use this file as an example and template for creating a CSV file with all of your products.
  6. When you’ve created your product list, save it.
  7. Log into My HostPapa Website Builder.
  8. Click on Online Store in the top menu.
  9. Click the pink Add/Edit Products+ button.
  10. Once in the product list, click on Import products.
  11. Select the file you would like to upload.
  12. Scroll down and select Import. Your products will now populate the product list.

Once you’ve created this file, you can edit the CSV file on your computer and follow the steps to import the file. Your product list will be updated accordingly.
