I have to add 100,000 products by the end of this week. Most of them are simple products, but 30% are configurable products, each with 8 simple products, totaling 100,000 item numbers.
I've used Magmi (in Mage 1), which worked pretty well importing CSV files, but without updated version for Mage 2, most people seem to use the default import feature in admin. But is there a better extension that store owners use? I did some searching without luck, hoping to find a direction.
Is it ever recommended to add products programmatically? I'd rather go that way, since I'm good at PHP, but a little new to Magento. Can experienced shop owners / developers give me advice on how best to add 100,000 products, based on best practices? Many Thanks
