The orders import feature is a part of the free Orders Import add-on. It is not included in the X‑Cart core.


An orders CSV file for import must have the name orders-xxxxxx.csv, where the part -xxxxxx can be anything you want or can be omitted.

Examples of correct product CSV file names:

  • orders.csv;

  • orders-13-01-01.csv;

  • orders-from-my-provider.csv

Below is a list of supported fields and their respective value types for category import.
