If you didn’t know what a  CSV file is then you can learn more fromWikipedia. You can use Microsoft Excel to enter all your data and then save the file as a CSV file.

Many of my WordPress Shopping Cart users have requested me to add an option so that they can bulk upload their product details into the database from a CSV file (really useful when you have hundreds of products). Hopefully this plugin will satisfy that need and in addition you will be able to use it to bulk upload any data into your WordPress database to save you time and effort.

Access the plugin’s User Interface in the WordPress dashboard under the “Settings” menu after installation and do the following:
