You need to know WHAT products you plan to export, and GROUP them accordingly. You can use any of the following options for grouping:
- Product Type
- Stocktake Section
They should be in a collection no larger than 3000 products. Storbie cannot import more than 3000 lines in a CSV. If you want to import more than 3000 products you need to split the groups into multiples.
