  1. Set up one sample product with the common properties.

  2. Clone the sample product.

  3. Change the names and individual properties of the clone products.

On the List of Products

  3. Click Edit selected above the list of products.

Use Apply values to all the selected products in the upper left part of the page to update the value of the property for all the selected products at once.

Updating Prices and Stock for All Products

khojinINDIA has a special page where you can update some properties of all products at once. For example, you can increase the prices of all products by 10%, or increase the list price to display discount labels on all products.

To update all products:

  1. In the administration panel, go to Products → Products.

  2. Click the gear button in the upper-right part of the page and choose Global update.

3. A new page will open. There you can update the following product properties:

By default, the update is performed for all products. But if you use the Add product button, then the properties will be updated only for the selected products.

  • Price
  • List price
  • In stock (the number of products in stock)
  • Price in points   
  • Once you’ve chosen how to update product properties, click Apply.

Importing Products

You can import (upload) products from a CSV file. CSV is a popular spreadsheet format. A line in a CSV file is one line of the table.

CSV files can be edited in spreadsheet editors such as LibreOffice Calc, OpenOffice Calc, Microsoft Excel. We recommend using LibreOffice (a free office suite) to edit CSV files.

To demonstrate the full process, let’s export one of the products to a CSV file first.

  1. Go to Products → Products in the administration panel of your store.

  2. Select the products you’d like to export by clicking on them.

  3. Choose Export selected in the Actions menu above the product list.

  4. The Export data page will open. There you will be able to choose the exported fields and change export properties. Each exported field is an equivalent of a product property. We recommend that you leave everything as is for the first time. After everything is set up, click Export.

  1. Open the exported file in the spreadsheet editor. The default delimiter for CSV is a semicolon.

  2. Each column of the table contains a specific type of product data.

  1. The product is identified by the Product code; it means that:

  2. All products must have unique product codes.
  3. If a product code already exists in a database, the product with this code will be updated or replaced.
  4. When you import a product, some fields are required:

  5. Product code

  6. Language

  7. Store—the storefront to which the product belongs.

  8. Product name—the name of the product

  9. Category—the category to which the product belongs

  1. Other fields are optional. This time we recommend exporting only these required fields.

  2. Use the sample product as an example and add new products to the table. Each line is a new product.

  3. Save the file in the CSV format, and you’ll be able to import it.

How is the B2B buyer journey different from that of B2C?

In a few different respects, the B2B buyer journey is distinct from the B2C buyer journey. There are usually several individuals looking for the right answer in a B2B buyer journey. It's often a single customer on a B2C buyer journey.

While a B2C shopper focuses on a single problem, the B2B buyer or buyers are likely looking for a solution to more than one issue. Since more than one person and many problems are always accounted for by the B2B shopper, the trip may be several different routes. A journey for a B2C buyer appears to be more organized.
