How to Import Products from Etsy to PrestaShop

To combine selling on Etsy and PrestaShop website is a good idea if you want to double your online presence and drastically increase the growth of your business.

The are also many other benefits of Etsy into PrestaShop integration. For instance, beyond the basic Etsy setup, with PrestaShop you can gain more control over the way you sell and display items, you can get advanced reports and analytics on your sales and also update your catalog faster.

On the other hand, you may think that setting up and moving data to separate site should take a lot of time and efforts. Manually copying products from Etsy to PrestaShop can seem intimidating, though there actually is a bulk method for completing the process without any coding knowledge at all.

The basis of Etsy to PrestaShop integration relies on export and import procedures that can help moving all of your existing at marketplace items to PrestaShop store.

Here are a few steps you need to make to transfer product listings from source marketplace to target eCommerce platform easily.

Step 1: Export Products from Etsy

You can download a CSV file that includes the listing title, description, price, currency code, quantity, tags, materials, and image URLs for all of your active listings.

The CSV format can be easily opened in almost any popular spreadsheet application.

To download your Etsy product data, sign in and after that go to Your shop > Shop settings > Options and click the Download Data tab. Then, click the Download CSV button to save the file to your PC.

Step 2: Import File from Etsy to PrestaShop

Now you can use exported spreadsheet to import to PrestaShop.

In your back-office go to: Advanced Parameters – CSV import.
Next in the field ‘What kind of entity would you like to import?’ select ‘Products’ from the drop-down. Load the file you have exported from Etsy and indicate fields and multiple values separators.

Proceed with import and at the next step you will be able to map file columns to PrestaShop database fields.

Note: As you see, you can map one CSV column to one database field only and we have in the file multiple images in separate columns. To import all of these images and data missing in the file (like category, status, etc) you need to modify your file before import.

In case you want to avoid manual file edits and would like to implement changes on-the-fly right during import, Store Manager for PrestaShop is solution for you.
