Product Price Bulk Update

Update Shopify Product Prices by Variant SKU

To do the Shopify Product price bulk update, follow these steps:

1 – Export Products to Excel

Export all products into Excel file with with Bulk Import Export Update with Excel app, by marking to export Products and Variants.

2 – Update new Product Prices in the file

Open this exported file for editing in Excel. You can remove all columns which you don’t want to update. The key is: to have product ID (or Handle), Variant SKU and Variant Price. This is necessary for the App to identify which price belongs to which Variant and Product.

Good to know!

  • You don’t have to import all columns back – you can keep just those columns in the import Excel file, which you want to update. To update product price, you need to keep the following columns only: “Handle”, “Variant SKU”, “Variant Price”, “Variant Cost”. Handle field will allow to identify the Product, but “Variant SKU” will allow to identify the Variant of the product.
  • If you don’t have the Variant SKU, then you can use other fields to identify variant:
    • Variant Barcode
    • Option1 Value, Option2 Value, Option3 Value (basically, all Options values, then it will find variant by those options)
    • Variant ID (you can get this by exporting Products with Variants)
  • You can have other columns in that Excel file for your own need. If those are named in some other names, the Product bulk Update process will ignore them.
  • Essentially, by the same principle you can update any other single field of your Products, Collections or Customers – by having this one column of data only.
