To import dropship products in bulk to your Shopify.com website you will need a CSV file in the correct format with the correct headers so it is compatible with Shopify.com.
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO IMPORT TO SHOPIFY.COM
The first thing you will need to do is go to wholesale2b.com and signup for the data feed plan. You can activate this plan from your free wholesale2b.com account.
Once your plan is active, you can add a custom Shopify.com feed to your account for the drop ship suppliers of your choice. You can follow the instructions on the page Can I Import Drop Ship Products To Shopify?
to find out how to add a custom Shopify feed to your account and to download the feed to your computer.
Once your feed is ready, you must download it to your computer from your wholesale2b.com account and follow the steps below:
Before we begin, I would like to give you some background as to why the shopify feed is served from a zip file.
Shopify requires that the CSV file be less than 20MB in size so your feed has to be split into multiple files and zipped to a file named shopify.zip. When you download the feed to your computer, you will be saving the file named shopify.zip which will contain all the smaller files with a file size of less than 20MB each.
Now that you have downloaded the zip file to your computer, you can UNZIP the file so you can see the actual feed(s). To UNZIP it just double click on the zip file itself and it will automatically extract the files for you.
Now follow the steps listed below to import the wholesale2b.com Shopify feed in to your Shopify.com website:
Login to your shopify admin panel and follow the steps below:
Step 1: Click the Products link from the left menu, See the screenshot below:
Step 2: Click the Import button on the very top, this will open a popup box, See the screenshot below:
Step 3: In this popup box please select shopify feed file (or shopify feed files if feed has been split into multiple files of size < 20 MB), See the screenshot below:

Then click on Upload File button
