Import products from WooCommerce

Modified on Sun, 14 Apr at 1:56 PM

Valigara allows importing product data from existing WooCommerce listings. 

Import from Etsy has two stages:


To fetch listings from WooCommerce: 

        1. Go to Catalog > Products

        2. In Actions menu select WooCommerce > Import Products

        3. In the pop-up set the import settings 

  • Select the WooCommerce site
  • Resize images to 2000 x 2000 px according to system settings
    • If checked, images are resized during the import according to Global Settings -> Image Settings 
    • If unchecked, images are imported in the original size
  • Select the import mode:
    • All listings inventory - import all WooCommerce listings 
    • Active listings only - import only the active WooCommerce listings
    • Partial - enter any number of listings to import. Listings will be taken according to their WooCommerce ID, from lowest to highest
    • Specific IDs - select a specific WooCommerce listing ID to import. Select multiple listing IDs separating them by a comma ","

  • Click Yes to start the fetching process

Check results in the import batch:


Once Valigara finishes fetching information from Woocommerce listings, the "Listings Import" pop-up appears.

If you don't want to run the import immediately, close the popup, and start the import manually later by going into the relevant "Woocommerce Listings Fetching" batch on the Batches page. To start the process, on the batch page click.

During the Fetching stage, Valigara checks the Woocommerce listings for variations and attributes. To create relevant products and store the information correctly, at the Import stage, define what are the relevant Valigara fields for the attributes and how the Variations are to be created. 

In the pop-up "Import specifics mappings," select:

  • Variations if relevant.
  • Example: A listing has 2 variations: "Material" (showing the available gold colors and purities) and "Ring size" (showing the available ring sizes)
    • In woocommerce variation "Material" choose the "Select field" -> and in the list of Valigara fields, choose
      "Main Metal -> Metal purity and title"
    • In woocommerce variation "Ring size" choose the "Select field"  -> and in the list of Valigara fields, choose "Product: Sizes->Sizes"
  • "Import Variations without unique SKU": 
    • if checked - variations of the listing which don't have their own SKUs are imported. Valigara will automatically create SKUs for the relevant products. 
    • if unchecked - variations of the listing which don't have their own SKUs are skipped.
  • The import creates: 
    • Separate products, with their own SKUs in Valigara Catalog for product-based variations (e.g. metals: white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, platinum and variations with different purity, main gemstone, etc.)
    • Variation fields with their own SKUs for field-based variations (e.g. sizes, length, box color/type, etc.)

  • Attributes Tab maps how Woocommerce listing attributes are stored in Valigara products.

    The attributes can be saved to:
    • Existing Valigara field - select from the drop-down
    • New Field - this will create the new field under "WooCommerce Import" set in Additional fields
    • Skip Field - the data of the specific attribute will be ignored.

  • Click the Process button. Open the batch from the pop-up
  • Click to "Show products" to see the created products in the import batch.
  • Success section 
  • Shows the successfully imported single and variation products
  • Click on a specific Item to open the product Edit page
  • Clickto see imported products on Products page
  • Errors section
  • Shows the list of products that failed to import, with specific error messages.
