How to import related products in normal import process? How can I achieve this? Is there any method available for import related products?


First, yes this can be done with Magento's Import / Export without the use of any extension.

Second, I would recommend taking one product, adding some related products to it in the Magento Admin, saving the product then exporting to CSV (System -> Import/Export -> Export).

You will notice two columns; _links_related_sku and _links_related_position

You will need to fill in those columns with the appropriate SKU. Please remember that each related product will need to be entered in a separate row (see screenshot).

This can be also done for crosssells and upsells.

    The first sentence is wrong. It can not be done with Dataflow. It can be done with only import – Magento Learner Sep 13 '16 at 7:50
  • @kab8609 Thanks it works but issue it is creating is if i have 2 products in csv for example sku A and another sku B. Now for SKU A I already have related product assign so in that column in csv I will not put any value for related but for upsell I will. And for SKU B I add both values. So what it does is it removes related product from SKU A, as it dont have any value assigned in csv. I tried this from both Import/Export and Data flow profile. Do you have any idea how to only update with currnt product assigned? Not replace it? – Rushvi Jan 30 '17 at 7:34
