You can easily create a new XML file for uploading your products. Just use a notepad to write it up and save it with the XML extension or you can export your products to get a format for the XML file.

The XML file starts with a <upload> tag and ends with a closing </upload> tag. Within these two tags, we can enter all the required information regarding the product being uploaded. Always remember that the tag name’s initial alphabet should always be a small letter. Also, while adding products it’s mandatory to include the category else the product will not be added.
