Tips: Importing Different Products with The Same Name

Tips: Importing Different Products with The Same Name

Some businesses require to have the same name for different products. If it sounds like yours, then you can import such products in bulk in Hike by using the product import feature. The process is the same as explained in Importing Products via Excel Files. The only difference is to tick the highlighted option below while mapping the fields. 


Notes to consider before importing with this option:

  1. We would recommend importing simple products and variant products with separate files when having the option ticked.
  2. Please enter the value for the "Is variant product" in the import template before uploading the file. The value should be "TRUE" for all variants, and "FALSE" for simple products and the parent product of the variants.
  3. If the product is a variant under a product, please make sure you enter variant option name and variant option value for it.
If you have further questions on what each column means, please refer to Importing Products via Excel Files.
