The import functionality allows the merchant to bulk import products instantly rather than going through the system and adding them one by one. This allows the merchant to put all of their products in a CSV sheet in their own time and then upload them all at once. The merchant can also use the import function to bulk update already existing products. Using different import profiles the merchant can select which section of a product to update and which sections to ignore.
