Hello,

You can massively upload products to Magento using default Import/export method, but remember that there should be all the mandatory fields, otherwise you may get the error and your import might not work.
If you need some tools with more flexible system of data upload, you can try Store Manager for Magento. Its built-in import wizard will guide you through all the steps of the procedure. Moreover, basically any files will be accepted, as the software has no specific requirements to the fields that you have in your upload file.
Anyway, there is free 14 days version, it is fully-functional and you can give it a try. The link for download it here -
