Wrapper for Magento ImportExport functionality which imports data from arrays




This module allows to import from arrays and thus using any import source, while the Magento module only imports from files. ImportExport exists since Magento 1.5 CE / 1.10 EE, image import since 1.6 CE / 1.11 EE. Thus, this module needs at least one of those versions. ImportExport has a special import format. See specifications about the expected format.

Main Features:

  • Fast Import using the built in Magento module ImportExport
  • Partial Indexing of only the imported products available
  • Unit tests for many test cases included
  • Importing of additional entities: Categories, Category-Product relations
  • Improved error messages stating which values are expected instead of a given value

Please see our documentation for a full list of features.


  • PHP >= 5.3.0
  • Mage_ImportExport


  • Magento >= / Magento EE >=
