Adding products in Oberlo and importing products to Shopify

After you decide which products you want to sell, it's time to add them to your import list. Adding a product to your import list doesn't add it to your Shopify store automatically. You will need to import them to your Shopify store from your import list.

Searching and adding products

You can search for products and add them to your import list from your Oberlo dashboard.

To search and add products:

  1. On the sidebar, hover over the price tag icon, and click Search Products.

  2. Enter your search into the search field, or click one of the product categories to filter down to the products you're interested in.

  3. When you find a product that you want to add, click Add to Import List under the product's image. To add more products, repeat this step.

Import products to your Shopify store

When you want to import products to your Shopify store to sell, you can do it from the Import List page.

To import products to your Shopify store:

  1. On the sidebar, hover over the price tag icon, and click Import List.

  2. There are two ways that you can import your products to your Shopify store:

  • To import products individually, click Import to store.

  • To import products in bulk, select more than one product and click Import all to store.

Your imported products will appear on the Products page in the Shopify admin.

Import product variants to your Shopify store

If you don't want to import all a product's variants to your store, then you can import individual variants that you want to sell. Some products can have hundreds of variants and you might want to sell only a few of those variants in your Shopify store.

For example, you want to sell a mobile phone case but it has 40 variants:

Phone case with 40 variants
You can deselect the variants you don't want to sell and import the remaining variants to your Shopify store.

To import product variants:

  1. On the sidebar, hover over the price tag icon, and click Import List.

  2. Click the Variants tab for the product.

  3. Deselect the variants you don't want to sell.

  4. Click Import to store after you've selected all the variants that you want to sell.

Your imported products will appear on the Products page in the Shopify admin.
