How to Import Tracking in Magento


Magento's e-commerce software enables you to build and maintain an online storefront. Magento's application programming interface (API) even allows you to revise your storefront's source code. But if you don't have experience with computer programming or can't spare the time to create code for your store, Magento supports add-ons to expand the application's functionality. And if you need to import tracking information into your store's database, use one of Magento's modules to import the tracking data from a CSV (comma separated values) or XML (Extensible Markup Language) file.

  • Log into the Magento admin panel. Click the "System" heading in your Magento dashboard. Highlight the "Magento Connect" option in the context menu that appears beneath the "System" heading and click the "Magento Connect Manager" suboption.

  • Log into the Magento Connect site, using your Magento credentials. Paste your tracking module's extension key into the "Paste Extension Key to Install" field, then click the "Install" button to install the module for your store (see Tips). Return to your Magento dashboard after the installation process has completed.

  • Click the "Sales" heading. Select the "Import Tracking" option from the context menu that appears beneath the heading to access the tracking module.

  • Click the "Upload" or "Choose File" option from the module's "Upload file" or "Upload File Manually" heading to browse for the CSV or XML file that contains the tracking information you'd like to import.

  • Click the "Save Config" or "Store Settings" option in the module's toolbar to set Magento to upload tracking data from your CSV or XML file.

Tips & Warnings

  • Magento uses the extension keys to authorize the installation of the associated modules. The extension keys are provided by vendors of the Magento's third party modules (see Resources).
