Hi,

I have created a sister site in Magento and was wondering if it is at all possible to import the inventory from my original Magento store to the new store. If possible this would safe a lot of time.

Regards. Pari.

The inventory is fairly straight forward if you are comfortable updating your database directly. I do this on updates from a local POS

Parl,

You can do both a product export as well as just inventory from the admin panel under System > Import/Export > Profiles. If you have any questions feel free to shoot me an email. You can also run multiple websites with one Magento install.

Hi,
You can just export all inventories from your main site then import the csv file to your new site this what i recommend
this will be quite easy to do

Pari,

@brunomarshall and @Bob Brodie are correct, that is the easiest way to do it. Sorry to over complicate things

Thank you all for the advice,

It sounds like it is sort of straight forward to import the products but what about the actual images for the products? Is there a way to also bring them across?

Thanks and kind regards. Pari.
