How to generate a correct sample CSV file

If you experience difficulties when creating a correctly formed CSV file for importing information about products and categories, you can generate a sample file using Shop-Script. To do so, manually create a sample catalog hierarchy consisting of several nested categories and products inside them. Then export the sample catalog into a CSV file in backend section "Import / Export → Export products to CSV".

Download the exported file, open it with a any suitable table editor; e.g., OpenOffice/LibreOffice, Microsoft Excel, or iWork, learn its structure, and create your own CSV file, similar to the exported sample, using the detailed instructions.
