External URL image import support for Product Importer Deluxe

Migrating from another e-commerce platform to WP e-Commerce just got easier with the ability to import Product images from external URL’s.

1.9 of Product Importer Deluxe for WP e-Commerce makes it easy for developers to migrate Product images from one store to another by specifying the full URL path to images (e.g. http://www.visser.com.au/example/image-3.jpg) which during the import process is read, saved – to the WP e-Commerce Product images directory – and then Product image thumbnail generated. Pretty neat!

This update also includes:

  • a re-ordering of image import options
  • added commenting to code
  • improved Plugin readme
  • improved Plugin update notification

Existing customers can download the latest release from the Premium Plugin Updates page, those interested in this Plugin should read the detailed Product page for Product Importer Deluxe.

Next week I’ll be adding online documentation to the WP e-Commerce > Documentation pages for those requiring additional content to use Product Importer Deluxe and other WP e-Commerce Plugins available on Visser Labs. Now, how about those beers Emil?
