No matter what I try I get this error message: add product type column. 

Your CSV file requires a Product Type column and for each product you will need to specify whether it is a Physical or Service product.

Did you try using the template they provide? Add a single product to it and test the process so you are familiar with it. If this works, you’ll know the template is ok and you can add further products.

Solved. 
Thanks Paul. 

How did you manage to fix it? I downloaded their template and tried to upload it into my shop,... even their .csv shows an error.

- I tried it with Google Sheets (no luck)
- I tried excel, but again nothing 
- Tried Numbers - also no luck

I copied and pasted from each program to another, and deleted PRODUCT ID and VARIANT ID away, (recommended from another article) again with no luck.

Have no clue what else to do,... I have to upload at least 150 products online, and doing it one by one is taking too much time. Please HELP!!!

I've never deleted those columns. Just leave the cells blank and SS fills in the info for you.

I have an example file that I use for testing. This one has variants.

I suggest you get an import working with it. Then get a couple of items importing from your data. Then once you have a couple of yours importing, move onto the rest.

Let us know how it goes.
