I am developing a connector between Magento 2 and an ERP system. And I have to import 1000s of products from ERP to magento. And Update them using cron.

So I want to know what is the best way to bulk import products. And how they can be achieved?

There's a Magento 2 version of FastSimpleImport:


It allows you to programmatically access Magento\ImportExport module and will be quite fast (50-100 products per second).

  • based on standard Magento import (CSV) but can import via Data array very fast
