    Importing or amending your products on Shop’s Noir just got a lot easier. Shops’ Noir team can help you import or update tens or hundreds of your products in your store with a single CSV file.

    • First-time store owners can get started more quickly by exporting and importing products during setup.
    • Existing store owners can add or update all of their products with new info or place them on sale for a special event.

    Create your CSV

    To import new products or update existing products, you need a CSV containing your product information. You can:

    • Export a CSV of products from another online store.
    Download our CSV file with sample data and replace it.
    • Use your own CSV.

    Any information you wish to include should follow the formatting and columns of the guide below.

    Send your CSV

    Email your CSV file to [email protected], including your username and shop name and will get your products imported for you.


    • CSVs should be in UTF-8 format.
    • Use 1 or 0 in your CSV if your importing a true or false value. (1 = True/Yes 0 = False/No)
    • Multiple values in a field get separated with commas.
    • Wrapping values in quotes allows you to insert a comma.
    • The hierarchy of categories is denoted with >, terms are separated with commas.

    • Images need to be pre-uploaded or available online to import to your store.
    • External URLs are supported and imported into the Media Library if used.
    • You can define the filename if the image already exists in the Media Library.
