Importing Collections in Shopify

Since Shopify doesn't natively support collection imports through the admin interface, you'll need to use the Shopify API or a third-party app. Here's a general approach:

  1. Shopify API:

    • Use the Shopify Admin API to create collections programmatically.
    • You'll need to write a script or use an app that can send POST requests to Shopify with your new collection details.
  2. Third-Party Apps:

    • Look for apps in the Shopify App Store that offer data import functionality, including collections.
    • Follow the app's instructions to upload your collection data, often through a CSV file.
  3. Manual Upload:

    • Alternatively, you can manually create collections and assign products to them in the Shopify admin.

Note: Interacting with the Shopify API or using third-party apps typically requires a certain level of technical expertise.
