    Updated 22 March 2022


    With the Pimcore Custom XLSX import plugin, the user can import the product, categories, Brand, and Manufacturer using an XLSX file. The plugin allows the user to create the custom mapping of their XLSX file with the Pimcore Data Objects.

    In the past, most of the eCommerce companies were managing their product catalog using CSV/XLSX file but now most of them are moving towards PIM because it is easier to manage the product information with the PIM at a single place.
