[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: 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
