Magento system offers the widest opportunities for online store owners. There are many functions which are available in the system by default and do not require any additional Magento extensions.
All the merchants have to review their prices once in a while, not only in usual stores but in the online stores, as well. Magento offers the functionality which can simplify this process. You can edit all the prices at once using a .csv file, thus saving a lot of time and effort.
In order to do this, you need to go to your admin panel, then to System > Import/Export > Profiles. Use ‘Add New Profile’ button to create a new import/export profile. To make the process even simpler, you can export only a few fields (e.g. SKU and price) instead of exporting all information about a product. After you create a new profile, save the settings and click ‘Run Profile’ button. After that the .csv file with the necessary data will be saved on the server in var/export folder. In order to modify this file you need to download it using FTP, then open it using Dreamweaver, Excel, or any other software capable of creation and edition of electronic tables.
After the file has been modified you need to upload it back to the server using “Upload File” button:
After you save the settings and run the file, all modifications made in it (e.g. product prices) will be applied in your store.
