Magento Source Plugin for Medusa

A Medusa plugin that imports categories and products from Magento into Medusa.


This plugin imports Magento categories and products into Medusa. It creates categories and products that don't exist, and updates those that have been imported previously.


Magento has 6 product types. As some of those types don't exist in Medusa, only the Configurable and Simple products can be imported.


Medusa Setup

You must have a Medusa server installed before installing this plugin.
Furthermore, the Medusa server should have PostgreSQL and Redis installed and configured on your Medusa server.

Magento Setup

On your Magento admin, go to System -> Integrations -> Add New Integrations.
You need to give the integration the access to the following resources:
  • Catalog (with its child resources).
  • Stores -> Settings (with its child resources).
  • Stores -> Attributes (with its child resources).
After creating the integration, activate it from the Integrations listing page. Once you activate it, you'll receive four keys: Consumer Key, Consumer Secret, Access Token, and Access Token Secret. Copy them as you'll need them for the plugin's options.

Installing Plugin

To install the plugin run the following command on your Medusa server:
npm install medusa-source-magento

Use the Plugin

Server Startup

To use the plugin, just start the Medusa server:
npm start
The import process will run in the background of the server. Based on how many products you have, it can take some time the first time running it.

As a Batch Job

You can trigger the import by creating a new batch job using the Create Batch Job API endpoint. You can pass the following in the payload:
"type": "import-magento",
"context": { },
"dry_run": false
This will trigger the import process.
