This module allows to import stock information from CSV and XML files, with SFTP support.

Make sure to check out the new sphere-node-cli for performant imports using JSON.

Getting started

$ npm install -g sphere-stock-import

# output help screen
$ stock-import


By default you need to specify the path to a local file in order to read the import information, via the --file option.

When using SFTP, you should not use the --file option, instead you need to provide at least the required --sftp* options:

  • --sftpCredentials (or --sftpHost, --sftpUsername, --sftpPassword)
  • --sftpSource
  • --sftpTarget

CSV Format

A simple example:


Custom fields


Please note: We do not support the localized set type.

XML Format

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
