we were facing same issue when importing customer infromation it was like 13000 rows, it worked when we split files of 1000 rows.

a bash command that helped to split quick is:

split -l 1000 mybigfile.csv

but you have to add the csv headers to each file.


Hi please set max execution time 18000
try using collection of 500 product in one csv files , mens at time import 500 then next 500. it work fine try it.

  • it is possible to add 22,000 products at once in Magento 2 ??? Need help

When you import large files you shall consider to import them by the command line.

Magento 2 Import Performance could give you a hint how to get started with it.
