[Plugin update] Product Importer Deluxe 1.9.8 for WooCommerce

Hi WooCommerce store owners, the 1.9.8 Plugin update is a major Plugin update introducing a new Variable and Variation Product Type import engine as well as new Product import fields.

New format for importing/merging Variable and Variations

We’ve done away with the legacy variation import format relying on the Product Name field being specially formatted as it limited our ability to generate Variations made up of multiple Attributes (e.g. Colour: Red, Shape: Blue, Size: Medium), you can export directly from Store Exporter Deluxe and use the same export file to re-import your changes.

For new Variation imports you can now simply populate the Attribute columns for Variable Product Types and linked Variations and we’ll generate the Attribute Terms and link the Variations to the Variable Products at import time. Setting the Default Attribute is as easy as populating the Default Attribute cell for the Variable Product Type.

Here’s the full changelog:

Added

  • Added: Default Attributes to Variable Products (thanks Carl)
  • Added: TAB field delimiter detection to upload notice
  • Added: Import support for Text Type Product Attributes (thanks Corin)
  • Added: Row column to final Import Log screen
  • Added: Detection of empty Product rows
  • Added: Logging to WC_Logs for Products that fail validation without a reason

Fixed

  • Fixed: Product Variations not importing
  • Fixed: Visibility defaults to visible
  • Fixed: Corruption of import file when delimiter is incorrectly detected
  • Fixed: Conflict with W3 Total Cache Object Caching (thanks Daphne)
  • Fixed: Cannot merge Stock Status changes (thanks Gyula)
  • Fixed: Duplicate Attribute Terms not linking to new Products (thanks Corin)
  • Fixed: Currency import validation issue (thanks Matt)
  • Fixed: Currency import formatting issue (thanks Paolo)
  • Fixed: Automatic field delimiter detection failing in CRON imports (thanks Borko)
  • Fixed: Automatic Plugin updater conflict

Changed

  • Changed: Cannot import new Sale Price without Price for Variations
  • Changed: Deactivate Visser Labs Updater on upgrade

Plugin update: Wholesale Pricing – 1.7.7

Hi WPEC’ers, the 1.7.7 Plugin update for Wholesale Pricing resolves issues when importing/merging Product changes via Product Importer Deluxe by introducing a new import addons engine.

Here are some sample import rules:

  • ” (empty): Ignore Wholesale Pricing for this User Role, or if merging changes ignore Wholesale Pricing values for this User Role
  • ‘-‘ (dash): Disable Wholesale Pricing for this User Role
  • ‘25.00’: Set a Fixed Price of $25.00(*2) for this User Role
  • ‘+25.00’: Set a mark up of $25.00(*2) for this User Role
  • ‘-25.00’: Set a mark down of $25.00(*2) for this User Role
  • ‘+25%’: Set a mark up of 25% for this User Role
  • ‘-25%’: Set a mark down of 25% for this User Role

‘-‘ (dash)

Adding a ‘-‘ (dash) character to a ‘Wholesale Pricing – Role(*1)’ column will turn off Wholesale Pricing for that User Role on that specific Product.

(*1) Replace Role with a WordPress User Role; e.g. Administrator, Subscriber, Wholesaler, etc.

(*2) Wholesale Pricing will use the currency formatting from the  local currency; e.g. USD, AUD, EUR, etc.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Fixed: Import support
  • Changed: Default Wholesale Pricing values

Product Importer Deluxe turns 2.6

Minor update including support for importing Width, Height and Length Product details, also snuck a sample custom Product meta field for developers who wish to extend the supported Product details even further.

Support has been added in 2.6 for the following Product details:

  • Width
  • Width Unit
  • Height
  • Height Unit
  • Length
  • Length Unit

I’ll update the sample CSV available from the Product details page shortly, jump over to the Product Importer Deluxe information page or existing customers can download the latest release through the Premium Plugin Updates page.

Product Categories Importer does sub-categories too!

I committed to it and after a few hours wrestling code it’s done. Product Categories Importer, the Plugin that comes with Product Importer Deluxe and Standard now supports importing sub-categories.

Product Categories Importer sets up your Product Categories (for instance, Category/Brands) structure by populating the Product Categories tables in WP e-Commerce. Download it today by purchasing one of the Product Importer releases for WP e-Commerce.

External URL image import support for Product Importer Deluxe

Migrating from another e-commerce platform to WP e-Commerce just got easier with the ability to import Product images from external URL’s.

1.9 of Product Importer Deluxe for WP e-Commerce makes it easy for developers to migrate Product images from one store to another by specifying the full URL path to images (e.g. http://www.visser.com.au/example/image-3.jpg) which during the import process is read, saved – to the WP e-Commerce Product images directory – and then Product image thumbnail generated. Pretty neat!

This update also includes:

  • a re-ordering of image import options
  • added commenting to code
  • improved Plugin readme
  • improved Plugin update notification

Existing customers can download the latest release from the Premium Plugin Updates page, those interested in this Plugin should read the detailed Product page for Product Importer Deluxe.

Next week I’ll be adding online documentation to the WP e-Commerce > Documentation pages for those requiring additional content to use Product Importer Deluxe and other WP e-Commerce Plugins available on Visser Labs. Now, how about those beers Emil?

Product Importer Deluxe 1.8 brings Custom Delimiter and Update Notifications

Today I published Product Importer Deluxe for WP e-Commerce 1.8.

Inside this release I’ve added support for selecting a custom CSV delimiter and as well as Plugin update notifications within the Plugins page (thanks John for the idea). This will mean no more swapping out the comma for a squiggle character within PHP files.

My next goal is to provide a reliable method of distributing updates of all my Premium Plugins, I’ll likely use PayPal’s Transaction ID as a critical part in this feature for the Shop. As always please contribute any feature requests/ideas and I’ll see what I can do!
