Products ignored when importing product CSV file


When importing a product CSV file you receive an error message stating products have been ignored. 


  • Vend for Mac or PC


There are three main causes of this issue:

  1. The tax name in the tax column does not match the tax name set up in your Vend account.
  2. The ID in the CSV file belongs to a deleted product
  3. The handle has been changed on a variant and/or composite product


  1. Ensure that the tax name listed in the CSV file exactly matches the tax name in Setup > Sales Taxes.
  2. Delete the contents of the ID column, making sure to leave the column header
  3. Use the original handle for variant and/or composite products

Additional Information

  • A common mistake is a space after the tax name
  • Standard products will be ignored if their handle is identical to another standard product already in Vend
  • Composite products will also be ignored when importing a product CSV file as the product will be updated if changes were made to any product(s) that make up the composite
