  1. CSV import suite plugin: scheduling automatic imports

    We generate 2 csv files two times a day (products.csv and variations.csv). These 2 files are published via FTP in a directory on our shop's server.

    The problem here is as of today, we need to manually go to CSV import backend and submit the import requests for both "merge products" and "merge variations".

    We need a way to schedule those operations, no need to map fields evey time or manual intervention.

    • Cron Job in Product Importer Deluxe?

      Is it possible to include a Cron Job i Product Importer Deluxe. It would be nice to have it all automated. Because at this point I have to download the product feed manually and upload it to Product Importer Deluxe also manually.

      With a Cron Job I could point Product Importer Deluxe to the address of my site ex: hxxp://mysite.com/wp-content/feeds/all.csv and let the Cron Job automatically download the CSV file from an affiliate network?

      I found a guide on how to setup a Cron Job: http://www.affiliatetuts.com/datafeeds/automating-datafeed-imports-using-cron-jobs/

      The only thing I'm missing is an extra box at the import products in…

      • Add cron feature to Product CSV import Suite

        It would be great to have the feature to set up cron jobs for product imports. So that we could run an import from an ERP system every nigh.

        • Exports products with delimiter ;

          So I missing export settings for export... It's better to set delimiter as ; in export to read it instantly in Excel

          I know, " , " is standard, but in Excel (with my localization Czech Republic) is hard to clients import CSV from text and parse this CSV...

          • Add Brands Column to CSV Importer & Exporter

            Would be awesome if we could automatically import the Product's brands now that Brands are native part of Woocommerce. I have to dig into the code to find a way to add Brands as part of the import.

            • Product import/export feature (also Product CSV import suite) should have an option to remove the product image

              We want to be able to update a product that has a product image to remove the product image via CSV. If we leave the image filed empty it does nothing.

              • Allow product import from csv to delete fields/values

                The new built in product csv export/import is great except for 1 thing - you cannot delete a value.

                If the csv has an empty value (i.e. 2 commas), the merge on import ignores the value and does not overwrite existing data of the product. So if you want to delete a value (such as removing all images) it cannot be done via the import.

                I would suggest that if csv contains an empty string in quotes, then it is taken as delete existing value. Or make it configurable - so on import you could say configure a value to…

                • Add ability to ADD additional product categories w/o replacing old categories

                  It would be super-helpful if I could ADD new new product category to products, rather than having to export product data and add a product category to the field and then reimport and replace - which is currently how merge import is setup - not cool when managing promo items for a large store.

                  For example, let's say for the month of November, I want to apply a 30% discount to 100 products that are in 15 different product categories. It would be much more helpful and efficient if I could simply import a CSV with the SKUs for all…

                  • CSV Import Suite: Adjust Product Inventory rather than replace.

                    We get restock every week on items that arent necessarily out of stock, we would love to use the embedded CSV importer, but it needs a CHANGE STOCK function instead of the current REPLACE function. We get over 500 replacement SKUs each week, if we could just have a column of the items qty at arrived and it would add it to the currently quantity it would save hours of time over the current option of checking inventory and then adding the restock number (at that point I might as well do it manually).

                    • Make CSV import work multilingual

                      For multilingual sites it is very important to be able to import products in multiple languages. After import products have to be connected to each other (original language with translation).
                      WPML compatibity is a must as most multilingual sites are using that plugin.
                      I think that Woo could do better in the field of mutilingual capabilities as there are plugins that can already do that.
                      You're losing money as people would rather buy from the 'source' but as there are no options...
                      Thnx

                      Thanks

                      • Incremental stock imports

                        When importing stock into Woocommerce stores, allow import stock values to add to existing values, rather than overwritting.

                        This will be a major enhancement which will be a great benefit (to me lol!)

                        • Product CSV Import Suite: make it compatible with 'WooCommerce Additional Variation Images' plugin

                          Product CSV Import Suite doesn't migrate variation images which were previously added with the another Woo-plugin - 'WooCommerce Additional Variation Images' extension.

                          It would be ideal if all Woo extensions would be cross-compatible.

                                Plugin has a bug and forces you to upload from wp-content/uploads/bymonth/date ... for those who sell many brands this is a complete nuisance ... change this to allow for custom url or by brand/company so that we don't mix up brand files
