Plugin update: Product Importer Deluxe – 3.2.4

Hi WPEC’ers, the 3.2.4 Plugin update for Product Importer Deluxe adds support for scheduled imports (via cron) as well as additional import methods to extend our ‘merge Product changes’ feature.

Scheduled imports

The scheduled importing feature is ideal for store owners that wish to:

  • maintain very large online catalogues (importing/merging via cron is faster and uses less memory)
  • in-house inventories can be synced through regular automated imports (e.g. every 30 minutes merge stock changes)

Scheduled importing can be configured within your Administrator’s hosting panel (e.g. cPanel) or by contacting your hosting provider for more information, see the Plugin readme for details on the expected URL request format.

New import options

Product Importer Deluxe now comes with three different import methods to control how new Products are imported and existing Products are merged, these are:

  • Import new Products only: Import new Products and do not merge Product changes
  • Import new Products and merge Product changes: Recommended for most store owners
  • Merge Product changes only: Do not import new Products, only merge Product changes

Plugin update: Product Importer Deluxe – 3.1.2

Hi WPER’ers, the 3.1.2. Plugin update for Product Importer Deluxe focuses on the addition of Zero Price Product support (e.g. $0.00), improving foreign language/character support as well as eliminating the need for multiple imports (one full import, one merge import) by modifying the merge import method to also create new Products where an existing SKU cannot be detected.

Other improvements include a clean up of the import templates (got rid of 3 unnecessary template files) and moving Wholesale Pricing import support out of Product Importer Deluxe and into its own Plugin; as has been done in the past for Related Products, Custom Fields, etc.

Automatic image method detection reads the contents of the first Product row’s Image column and decides if it looks like a URL (e.g. http://www.domain.com/images/image-1.jpg) or filename (e.g. image-1.jpg|image-2.jpg). If successful it will set the import method options for you by enabling the image import tickbox as well as selecting the correct image import method (e.g. filename, external or manual upload).

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Changed: Moved Wholesale Pricing integration to its own Wholesale Pricing
  • Added: Zero Price support for Products
  • Added: Image method detection at upload time
  • Changed: Merge import method creates new Products too
  • Changed: Removed …import-failed_minimum.php template file
  • Changed: Removed …import-success-warnings.php template file
  • Changed: Removed …import-success.php template file
  • Fixed: Foreign characters being stripped at import

Plugin update: Product Importer Deluxe – 3.0.8

Hi WPEC’ers, the 3.0.8 Plugin update squashes a critical timeout issue affecting some CSV uploads and an incorrect filesize validation that was introduced in 3.0.7. Validation and Import Log feedback has been beefed up to provide friendly notices of failed Product details.

I’ve been away from the community this past fortnight and apologise for the any inconveniences caused during this absence. I’m putting all resources available to stabilising the 3.0 series with 3.0.8 being an urgent Plugin update which will be followed by regular minor Plugin updates before Variations support is introduced. I’m scanning the Forums and Plugin pages for support calls and where possible contacting customers directly.

A new sample CSV is available from the Plugin page that includes Wholesale Pricing, Related Products, Custom Fields and Google Product Feed examples.

Included below is the full changelog for 3.0.8:

  • Fixed: Filesize validation bug on CSV upload
  • Fixed: Noticed hidden under WP_DEBUG
  • Fixed: Timeout affecting some users on CSV upload
  • Added: Validation rules for failed Products
  • Fixed: Related Products breaking Product images
  • Fixed: Erroneous image URL’s and filenames are ignored
  • Fixed: Empty Tags appearing in the Import Log
  • Added: Image to Product column detection within Import Log
  • Added: Image filename to Products within Import Log
