We have large Magento2 site with over 500 products, 15 different attributes types per product. Using short and long descriptions with total 500 work count
Would like to know if imports are a safe and effective way to manage content/price changes?
Are imports safe - or would you update on the admin interface??
Thanks In advance
Magento will easily handle that amount of products and attributes.
To be honest, is a low number so you shouldn't have any particular problem.
You could find some issue if you apply a really bad configuration of attributes (but even in that case the number of products you've mentioned will be easy to manage).
Maybe if you can provide some example of your more complex products we can provide more information.
As I said before by PM, it will depends on your business rules and logics.
I don't think this must be the only way but an alternative.
