multiple products with same option


Isn't there a way to submit several products at the same time with the same options without having to create on and duplicate ....I have hundreds of products....can't we name a field of product ID's the upload can grab the product ID and then add options and repeat?

is duplicating a dummy product with all of the options set up the only way to create multiple products with the same options at this time?

Hello,

Sorry for the delay!
There are two options available at the moment to create multiple Product options : creating ‘dummy’ product (cloning it) and using X-Cart format importing CSV file.
1) To create multiple products with similar options, you can just create one product, set up the options for it, save it and then clone it with Duplicate button on the top of the product page in Ecwid control panel (the options you created for it will also be cloned) and then change the cloned product so it has the properties of another product you want to sell. Repeat until all necessary products have been created. You can also have an always disable 'dummy' product that serves as a specimen for other products and has all necessary options already set up.
Once you need another product with such options in your inventory, you can just clone that 'dummy' product, setup the properties of it and then enable it, so it becomes available for sale.

2) You can prepare a CSV file in the X-cart Format, which supports Product Options import, and upload this file in your Ecwid Control Panel > Catalog > Import Products > X-cart tab.
To understand it better, how Ecwid CSV file should be formatted, please refer to the
following article http://help.ecwid.com/customer/porta....
To see how the X-cart CSV format is organized, please download the attached sample
from the following article http://help.ecwid.com/customer/porta....

Hello!

We will be glad to advise you. Please clarify what question you have.
If you want to know how you could create many product options at once, I can suggest couple solutions.
For now one can add an option to each product in a standard way, at Ecwid control panel>Catalog>Products>product page.
If you have one or similar set of options you may want to use the duplicate button: to duplicate a product with the defined options, thus you’ll need to change only name, price, description, etc.

Unfortunately, adding an option to multiple existing products at once is not yet available in Ecwid. Please, vote for this idea to get such functionality implemented in Ecwid sooner: http://ideas.ecwid.com/forums/22031-...

Yet there’s a way to import some options types using X-Cart format. Please check out this article for details:http://help.ecwid.com/customer/portal/articles/1169659.
The article contains detailed information about this import including a sample file.

Now it's possible guys to bulk edit a lot of product information, including price, enable/disable, options, choices and more.
Take a look at this piece of gold here:
