Import multiple files to Shopify in one batch from a file of URLs

Import urls from json file to Shopify excelify excel csv xlsx

With the Excelify you can use JSON files to create batch import with multiple files.

This can be useful for developers that have a list of URLs to import to Shopify.

Important Note: Creating a batch import from multiple files is only available for Excelify Big or Enterprise plan users.

How to construct your JSON file with file links

The JSON file needs to be in the following simple structure:

{
  "files": [
    {
      "uri": "https://domain.com/path/to/file.csv"
    },
    {
      "uri": "https://domain.com/path/to/file.xlsx"
    },
    {
      "uri": "sftp://username:[email protected]:port/path-to/file.xlsx"
    }
  ]
}

The link can be any URL that Excelify supports. See the full list in Excelify Import from URL tutorial.

When importing such file, the app will create a “child” job for each file URL in the JSON file.

You can track all your file import progress right from this Batch job or you can click on each individual child job to see more details about it.
