#48 How to import configurable product


I try to import configurable product but can not.

My configurable base on color and size attribute.

I attached my csv file with simple product.

Please help me.

    As described in the "configurable" plugin manual, to import configurable product you MUST add a line for this configurable product (with type=configurable) , and at least the "configurable_attributes" column , that would contain a comma separated list of your configurable attributes code.
    Then for associating the configurable with simples, several policies are available.

    • automatching : assumes that the configurable sku is a strict subset of the simples sku it would contain. example : configurable sku = XXAABB & all simples skus would begin with XXAABB. this is not the preferred way since assignation "conflicts" may arise (what if you have another configurable with XXAABBA as root sku ? all simples that would match sku root XXAABBA would also match XXAABB , so the simples of XXAABBA would be also assigned to XXAABB)

    • csv matching : this is an option in the configurable plugin configuration panel, this option requires you to put all simples that are to be associated with a configurable BEFORE the configurable line in the CSV.

    • explicit matching : using a specific column "simples_skus" , that would contain the list of skus to be associated with the configurable.

    Of course, the configurable item MUST match the simples attribute_set
