How can we improve WooCommerce?

Woocommerce Table Rate Shipping import/export function

I'd love to see an import/export function in "Woocommerce Table Rate Shipping".
It is very useful for developers. Sometimes, we have to fill hundreds of shipping prices.
With an export/import function, i could easily copy my configuration from a site to another one.

        Export globally shipping zone settings and reimport them into an other website ? Definitely a must-have

        This is defiitely much needed. Also to be able to duplicate table rate shipping from one zone to another!

        I would also like to see this for the Flat Rate Boxes shipping plugin. Actually for everything that you manually have to enter/configure in the Shipping tab of Woocommerce.

        Hi guys.

        I created a simple plugin for this task - https://wordpress.org/plugins/wc-shipping-rates-importer/

        You can import AND export shipping zone and table rate shipping data with this plugin.

        I don't have the premium plugin and just based the import/export logic from Dimitri's post regarding the 4 tables needed to be imported/exported. Let me know what you guys think and and feedback is very much appreciated.

        Import/export feature should be basic...like wheels are for the cars.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Any feedback on whether this is likely to happen? We are doing weekly freight costing report and would love being able to export, make any changes required and import.

        Yes, we can export sql tables but how many "real clients" are able to do that - they work on TRS as well? It's a useful idea and we keep multiple backups so we always have the shipping tables but a quick export/import feature would be so much better!

        Really neeeded, how can they charge top dollar for a plugin that requires so much manual work, c'mon guys.

        Hard to believe this had never been addressed in all the votes this has been getting over 4 years now.

        I tried the db table export and import from my staging to my production site and it didn't fully work. In particular, when editing the table rates for a particular shipping method the Shipping Classes in the dropdown menus have all been set to Any Class instead of the specific class corresponding to each line in the table. Any ideas why this happened?

      • ReesRees commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm inclined to agree with comments below about the price we pay for TRS. It's premium and there should and import/export.

        Yes, I can export the SQL data but my client can't in case he needs to be able to reinstate tables.

        I've experienced "pickled" TRS after updates which is frustrating because customers find it rather than the developer.

        Now we have Shipping Zones coming in Woo 2.6 I'm somewhat nervous about my days and days of work being destroyed in one fell swoop after update!

        So, yes, a bit vote up for this.

        I agree, with 128 votes + so far, an import/export and duplicate feature is needed. Manually entry in some cases is not efficient or practical.

      • Simon KellySimon Kelly commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm keen on this too. Mostly to have as a backup as on one of my sites the settings seem to keep getting reset after an update, so it takes at least 2 hours to reconfigure the settings. Booo.

      • TraceyTracey commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        PLEASE give us import / export! Entering all this manually is beyond ridiculous. And then to have to edit every one again when prices change? Surely there's a solution! Especially given the cost of the plugin.
