I have about 600+ product categories/menu categories that I used on the BigCommerce site. Is there an easy way to get them into magento? They are parent/child drilldowns for a tool site.

Hi Bill,

Yes! You can make Magmi do this for you, say you have 600 categories, import these all with the same product sku and if they don’t exist, it’ll make them for you.

See attached for an example.

I don’t see an attachment, sorry. So if I import them all with one sku so they create, what format do I upload them in by sku to get the “dropdowns” Example: Tools>Hand Tools>Hammers>Really Big Hammers>First Aid Supplies

Thanks for the help. I am really trying to figure out the best way to move forward with my business in the next couple of days, whether Magento is the answer.

Hi Bill,

See here https://understandinge.com/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-file-uploads/administrator/2014/02/Magmi-Import-for-Bill.zip

The dropdowns are controlled by Magento, you may also find this wiki page helpful http://sourceforge.net/apps/me…..r/importer too.

Does that help?
