You can bulk add new products to your Unicart store if you have a wide variety of products. As importing products in CSV is fast and yet sensitive, it is recommended to bulk add basic data such as Product Name, SKU, Quantity, Price and etc. Product Description, Whats in the box and Highlight are recommended to update directly from Unicart as they require HTML code to align in CSV file. Product images are advised to upload directly from Unicart as well. You can also export products to bulk update existing products or for backup purpose.
