Importing attachments together with CSV data into products

Fabio Goto asked on August 30, 2018 22:38


By following this guide here:, together with other resources, I was able to build a file uploader and parser for CSV files, so I can import batches of products.

The problem is: most of these products need a PDF data sheet as an attachment. How can I import these files as attachments, together with the CSV data?

Thanks! :)

I would have a column in your CSV with a filename or path to a file, then when you are creating the product, you create the attachment.

Here is the api for attachemtns.

Thanks, Zach!

Yeah, I'll have to read that API thingy and try to get the best out of it then. The importer I built was the first piece of proper C# code I wrote and was kinda surprised it worked. 😅

Let's see if I can do this then. This job kinda landed on my lap because no one was able to do it properly, but I'm mostly a PHP developer, so it's kinda a struggle. 😆 For beginner's luck, it's working and got approved. ✨

Thanks again!
