C3 category position import/export

This extension adds automatic export and import of category positions; so you can export your current positions, edit them in the csv either directly or via a spreadsheet, and then import the changed positions.

View the C3 category position import/export extension on Magento Connect.



  • New for v1.2.1 Export permissions work in line with SUPEE 6285 patch
  • Export of products with their positions within categories
  • Import .CSV file with product positions

Current Limitations

Bundled products can have their position exported but not imported due to limitations in Magento’s import. We are looking into this for the next release.

Dataflow import cannot be supported for position import as it works on product-per-row.



Compatible with

1.6, 1.6.1,, 1.7, 1.8, 1.8.1, 1.9

How it works

Export: Dataflow export is very slow, so a custom export is used that just exports the products and their positions within categories.

Import: A .csv file with sku, _category and _position columns can now be imported using the standard Magento Import.
