Importing locations

Locations data can be imported to magento using csv files. Import is done by uploading a file in main configuration (13).

File format has to be similar to example bellow. Most compatible and comfortable way for editing CSV files is using OpenOffice Calc application.

When importing locations which have 0 for coordinates, an attempt will be made to fill in these coordinates from Google. There is however a limit of about 20 geo location lookups per second from same origin (exact number is not stated). This means that bigger files with empty location coordinates will start to fail to fetch them from Google at some point. Solution is to split imported data on smaller files and import intervals. We work on solution about this, but it will involve some delay between requests, and this will too delay import process, but at least it will be in one go.


To export locations go to System > Configuration > Store Locations , open General settings if they are not open and click “Export Locations” button.
