How to merge multiple .csv files via command line

Today I downloaded 29 csv files with tax information. I could import those files 1 at a time into WooCommerce, but wouldn’t it be nice if I could merge them first and then only import a single file?

The unix command is simple – just navigate to the folder with all the csv files and type the following command into your terminal:

cat *csv > combined.csv

That’s it!
