Using the Import feature, you can add or update multiple products at the same time. When importing products, you can specify the data in simple CSV format. StoreHippo uses the data from your CSV file and turns it into products in your store.

The options are detailed below:
This option is used if products are updated using SKU for products/variants. By default, products are updated using the _id field.
If we check this field, then new categories do not get created even if there are new categories listed in the file.
In product import, by default parent category gets associated with products even when only child category is given. However, if we check this field, then the parent category will not be associated.
We can select any extension, and that extension will be added/override with images path for all images.
We can prepend folder name before all images path related to ms.files in CSV if images were uploaded inside a folder in ms.files.
