Importing your products into HotShp for writing

When getting started with Hotshp for your writing needs. Whether it be for descriptions, title, or social media writing. You will need to get information about your products, items or services into the application first.

Connect your store

We support various integrations with popular e-commerce platforms to make this easy. We currently support  Shopify, Etsy, and BigCommerce. These can be connected from within our application and we will seamlessly import your product data.

Manually enter product data

Product data can be entered manually using our create product interface with a simple form. You will need to enter the Title, Url, optional details, and up to 5 Images. These should give the writers enough data to write about.


CSV Bulk Product Importer

If you are using other e-commerce platforms or have products in another system and want to bulk import products, you can do that via our CSV Importer. 

Export from your current platform

You will need to export your data from your current system like Wix, Squarespace or square. They all support CSV exports from their platforms. 

Go to the CSV importer page inside the app by clicking "Import Products" on the product page or going directly  at

Format your data if needed

The first row of the CSV file is expected to be the header row. The column names we support for each field are listed there and in the image below. If your data export has the columns named differently, you must change them to match our expected headers.

Upload your CSV 

Upload the CSV file you have prepared for your import and click import. Your product data should be available in a few minutes to use.
