Hi,

I am looking to import large number of products but not all are for display on frontend in Magento. How do I do it? I have seen two options one for status and other for Visibility?

Which one should we use while importing?

Thanks

This Visibility should be set to Catalog, Search.  This is where you set the product so it can be searched by you as the admin and by the customer.  It includes it in a relevant search.

The enable setting is whether or not it shows up as a product.  If it is not enabled, it is still in your catalog but visitors won't have access to it.  When it is enabled, it is visible and available to the public.
