Volusion is an Ecommerce software platform that provides everything a business needs to sell products online. Volusion enables anyone with a business plan to activate that plan and start up their own personal ecommerce company. One feature that Volusion Ecommerce software has is the product export- this allows you to export your product information from your website so that you can view it and edit in an Excel document. Here is how to do a product export from Volusion:
Step 1– Log in to the dashboard/back-end side of your website. To do this, simply type your url and add /admin behind it. Then use your login and password to access the dashboard.
Step 2– Once you are on the back-end of your ecommerce site, you have access to everything from your orders to reports to product information, company information etc. The next step you need to take in order to export products in Volusion is to hover your cursor over the Inventory tab, then select Import/Export.
Step 3– Once you have clicked Import/Export, click Standard Export.
Step 4– You are now looking at the Standard Export tab. To Export Products from Volusion, simply click on the Export From dropdown. Next you want to select products because you are doing a product export.
Step 5– Now you can see the different product information that you can export from Volusion. You want to go through and select the items that you would like to export. The only column that you are required to export every time is productcode because this is the unique identifier for your products. After that the choice is yours- depending on your reasons for exporting you may choose different fields. For example, if you are wanting to edit product pricing, you may want to select productcode, productname (so you know what products you are working with), product price and vendor price. If you are working on product descriptions and want to edit these, you can export the productcode, productname, and productdescription columns. You can choose any variety of product fields to export, or you can simply click Check All and export all of them.
Step 6– Now you are almost done. The next step to export products from Volusion is to select the file format and then hit export. I typically export my products in CSV format- this makes the export a comma delimited text file and it will open in Microsoft Excel after you Export and Download.
Step 7– The final step to export products from Volusion is to click Export. Once you do this, you will see the following message: Your export file is available for download. Simply click on the download button, choose whether you want to open or save the export, and then click OK.
