  1. first you have decide what data you want to import and where - what is the destination record type?
  2. then you will tell us how to import data. Do you want to insert or update records?
  3. now you need to map data from XML file to fields in destination record type. For example, you need to tell us what node contains product name.
  4. this is an optional step - import related records. For example, you might want to import images together with products
