Cellar Star can import your existing cellar inventory from other cellar tracking applications and spreadsheets if they support export in CSV (comma separated values) file format.
Examples of these types of applications are: CellarTracker, Microsoft Excel, and Apple Numbers.
Imported inventory is added to any existing inventory you may already have in Cellar Star. An import may be used for a trial period of 14 days. After the trial period you can decide to keep or delete your import. During this trial period, the bottles imported do not count against totals affecting in-app purchase limits.
In general the steps are:
There are two methods for exporting from CellarTracker (see also: https://support.cellartracker.com/article/29-exporting-data). Both methods must use a web browser on your desktop computer. The first method is the simplest but will not import your public and private notes.
Method Two (use this method if you want to to import your public and private notes):
There are many web browsers and each is a bit different but in general, you will need to make three separate export requests and then save each result as a specially named CSV file. If your web browser doesn't offer a File>Save As... or similar function, you can always copy and paste the entire result into a simple text document using Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac) and then save from there.
Spreadsheets and Other Cellar Tracking Applications
For all other applications that you may be using, if you can export your inventory in CSV format, you may be able to import into Cellar Star. See the instructions for your application for export details. In particular, Microsoft Excel, and Apple Numbers are able to export in CSV format.
File name: import.csv
Save as type: CSV-UFT8
Export Your Spreadsheet: CSV

Other cellar tracking applications (consult their documentation):

The Import section of the Settings page looks similar to this after a successful import:
In this example an import was completed June 7, 2020. Tapping on this cell will offer the choice to keep the import or delete it from your Cellar Star inventory. Once you keep an import, the bottles count against totals affecting in-app purchase limits.
