I want to upload 100+ configurable products to Magento 1.9, I choose to import using CSV.

I had created one config product and its associated products manually, then I had exported that data and used the format for my import.

In the same format, when I am importing new SKUs, I am getting issues like this "Product with specified super products SKU not found in rows: 1, 2, 3 Orphan rows that will be skipped due default row errors in rows: 2, 3"

When I skip that issue and import the data means, only associated simple products get imported. But, the configurable products do not get imported.

This is the CSV:

You should follow below steps:

  1. Create the simple product rows
  2. Create configurable product row
  3. Assign child products to the configurable product

Below is the very basic csv sample;

sku,_store,_attribute_set,_type,_category,_root_category,_product_websites,color,cost,description,meta_keyword,name,price,short_description,size,_super_products_sku,_super_attribute_code,_super_attribute_option,_super_attribute_price_corr

The import goes through the file line by line:

  1. create configurable product
  2. associate simple products
  3. create simple products

This won't work because the simple products do not exist yet at step 2. Solution: reorder the lines, simple products first:

sku,_store,_attribute_set,_type,_category,_root_category,_product_websites,name,description,short_description,price,special_price,special_from_date,special_to_date,cost,weight,manufacturer,meta_title,meta_keyword,meta_description,image,small_image,thumbnail,media_gallery,color,news_from_date,news_to_date,gallery,status,url_key,url_path,minimal_price,visibility,custom_design,custom_design_from,custom_design_to,custom_layout_update,page_layout,options_container,required_options,has_options,image_label,small_image_label,thumbnail_label,created_at,updated_at,country_of_manufacture,msrp_enabled,msrp_display_actual_price_type,msrp,tax_class_id,gift_message_available,slider,neck_type,sleeve_type,fabric,size,washing_ironing_instructions,size_new,qty,min_qty,use_config_min_qty,is_qty_decimal,backorders,use_config_backorders,min_sale_qty,use_config_min_sale_qty,max_sale_qty,use_config_max_sale_qty,is_in_stock,notify_stock_qty,use_config_notify_stock_qty,manage_stock,use_config_manage_stock,stock_status_changed_auto,use_config_qty_increments,qty_increments,use_config_enable_qty_inc,enable_qty_increments,is_decimal_divided,_links_related_sku,_links_related_position,_links_crosssell_sku,_links_crosssell_position,_links_upsell_sku,_links_upsell_position,_associated_sku,_associated_default_qty,_associated_position,_tier_price_website,_tier_price_customer_group,_tier_price_qty,_tier_price_price,_group_price_website,_group_price_customer_group,_group_price_price,_media_attribute_id,_media_image,_media_lable,_media_position,_media_is_disabled,_super_products_sku,_super_attribute_code,_super_attribute_option,_super_attribute_price_corr

Importing the file twice might work too.

I have seen your csv, there is a mistake in csv data.

As per you csv data there is a configurable product is first and after simple product data.

but as per magento csv data when you import configurable product, first row must be simple product and then add configurable data.

Try this solution and let me know if not working.
