Configurable products in Magento 1.9 contains one or more linked simple products, that’s why we must include simples and configurable in a batch import file. Unfortunately, in Magento 1.9 there is a small limitation that won’t allow you to link imported configurable and simple products, here where our extension comes to help with it.
Configurable products import file configuration steps
- Add simple product rows.
- Add configurable product row.
- At the configurable row fill following attributes: "configurable_attributes", "configurable_children"
Field name Available values Description configurable_attributes String value Configurable attributes separated by comma configurable_children String value Simple product SKUs separated by comma
- Run import using profiles.
