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

  1. Can’t export more than 20 items or so with exporter de luxe, both in free version and now also in deluxe version I bought today.
    Also importer deluxe tells me that PHP is set to Safe (which I checked and I think it is NOT).

    Please help?

  2. Hey there Michael. Great new release. Thanks so much for your efforts in coming out with new features. We really appreciate your involvement with these plugins. I love it!

  3. I just tried to do an update import of sku’s, price, and quantity cause thats the only thing that would change, and when it starts to import, it keeps saying that things are missing like product name, category. I don’t know how many things are required cause i only tried it twice. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

      • I’m using WP-Ecommerce Version
        in WordPress Version 3.5.1

        • I’ve not been able to export anything from my store until your last update. not sure what you did, but I think your on the right track. I can now export only 11 out of 7066 items no matter what I check ( sku, description, price). Your importer does work though I like the new options. Thank you. I only wish it didn’t take 6 hours to merge import 7000 items. Thank you again for your work.

    • Hi akelaimari, the current release of Product Importer Deluxe requires the SKU, Product Name, Category columns within the CSV, they do not need to be populated but for the importer to run it requires the column headers to be present.

      I’ll adjust this in the next minor Plugin update to only require SKU when merging and Product Name and Category for new Products as minimum requirements.

    So here is the update that prevents the need to run the import twice, with and without the Merge option.

    Brilliant – thanks,.
