Details

This user-friendly Product importer, with clear step-by-step instructions helps you import and update Products, Variations, Categories, Tags, and other Product details into your store.

After successfully importing tens of thousands of Products across hundreds of WP e-Commerce, Jigoshop and WooCommerce stores Product Importer Deluxe has become the standard for store owners and web developers to bulk import Products, Variations, Categories, Tags and much more into WordPress-based stores.

Product Importer Deluxe can merge Product changes against existing Products with comprehensive reporting. Variations, Categories, Tags, Images and other Product details assigned to Products within the CSV file are all generated at import time making setting up your next store a one-step import process. Our free Store Exporter Plugin can export Products from an existing WordPress store making importing changes too easy.

How does it work?

Product Importer Deluxe earns its keep by populating the Categories, Tags, Images and Product tables in your store with Product details from a simple formatted CSV file.

Our Trello boards keep an up to date listing of supported Product import fields as well as Plugin roadmap.

Accepted Product field values are explained in detail on the Usage page in our Documentation section.

Third-party integration

To enable the import options for the above 3rd party Plugins ensure the Plugin (e.g. Related Products) is activated and up to date, refer to the sample CSV’s available in the FAQ section on this page for examples.

Support for additional Product details are introduced through regular free Plugin updates.

Updates

The latest release can be downloaded from your My Account page as well as opening Dashboard > Updates from the WordPress Administration of your store..

  1. Hi Michael

    I just bought the Importer for Jigoshop but just get a blank screen for the plugin in WP

    Latest WP (3.9) and latest Importer plugin

    any ideas ?

    I tried disabling all other plugins too – no joy

  2. Why in the hell is the exporter and importer not one simple tool? Why would I buy an exporter and then have to pay 5 times more again to import it!!!! Shakedown central.
    No discounts for multiple license is just greedy business practice, if it smells like it, it usually is. People not getting replies makes me run for the exit.

    I was in paypal ready to buy till I saw I needed another tool to import my work again, you give WP extension shops a bad name.

    • Hi jayman, we agree with you and future purchases as well as those who contact us for existing purchases will receive Store Exporter Deluxe as part of the importer purchase. I’ll announce this on the blog.

      Back in the day – WP e-Commerce 3.6 or earlier – we built this importer with no plans for an export solution, today the majority of custom work we do is within this space. Thanks for the honest feedback, we’re really trying to do our best for store owners.

    • Just to follow up on this, there are no Product restrictions in our free Store Exporter Plugin, the Pro upgrade ($20) unlocks Orders, Customers and Coupon exporting as well as other business focused export features.

      As mentioned early, we provide a free license to Store Exporter Deluxe with every purchase of product Importer Deluxe. Win win! :)

  3. Will this plugin work with the Advanced Custom Fields plugin? I have two text fields created with ACF and I’m wondering if they will populate if I include them in my csv file?

    Thanks!

Do you have a sample master products CSV file for Product Importer Deluxe?

Sure do, included below are a few samples as well as blank templates to buil from.

Blank CSV template with column names

Sample CSV

  • Sample CSV (1.4 – Updated: 02/08/2012) – with Variations and Table Rate Prices
  • Sample CSV (1.3 – Updated: 26/04/2012) – with Wholesale Pricing, Related Products

  • Sample CSV (1.1)
  • Sample CSV (1.0)

Can I link a Product to multiple Categories/Tags/Images, etc?

Sure can, just put a ‘|’ (vertical pipe) character between each item, currently all of the above are supported. In a near future Plugin update multiple file downloads will also be included.

Can I declare sub-categories and establish parent-child relationships with the included Product Category Importer for WP e-Commerce?

Roger that, when declaring a child Category ensure you use place an ‘>’ (arrow) character between the parent and child. With the release of 2.6.5 you can drill down up to 3 levels deep, for instance:

  • Clothes>Men>Casual within the Category column of your CSV file will link a Product to Clothes, Men (as a sub-Category of Clothes) and Casual (as before).
