How to Import Products
Elite Paints Ltd
From the wordpress dashboard go to > Woocommerce > CSV Import Suite
Click import products button
Click choose file and choose your 1000 products CSV
Leave all other fields as they are and click ‘UPLOAD FILE AND IMPORT’
Scan through fields to make sure all are correct.
Most important ones to check are ‘post title’ and ‘images/gallery’ – if these 2 are in the right place you are good to go.
Scroll all the way down and click submit
If you notice that no new imports have happened for a while (around 5 mins) it means it’s timed out. Just close the tab/window and then go back into the dashboard in a new tab and start the import again.
You’ll see loads of these imports (see image) first but it will work out where you were and then keep going.
NOTE: when you log back in to the dashboard, sometimes there is a message that says woocommerce is updating product data (see image2) – you need to let this finish before importing again.
It usually only takes a few minutes so just refresh the page before continuing.
This also apllies for new imports – so just double check it’s not there before importing anything.
