    I’m moving an online shop from OpenCart to WP e-Commerce. I can use the Product Importer Deluxe to import product data and I have the template CSV files for products, but how do I handle categories and variations? Also product images? I want to makes sure I know how to fully import all the required data before spending too much time and finding I can’t do what I am expecting to be able to do.
    I tried viewing the readme file link doesn’t work for WP e-Commerce – http://www.visser.com.au/documentation/product-importer-deluxe/. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi AuricConsulting, your topic got zapped to our spam folder so I’ve only just dug it out, regarding our importer:

    – We use the Category column that is assigned to Products (e.g. Crayons>Red>64 Pack) to generate Categories as we process Products.
    – We use the Product Name column to generate variations, we are in the process of developing a new method for generating and maintaining Product Variations which will be announced shortly and make it alot easier to do the above
    – Product Images can be external URLs or relative image paths from the WP Uploads directory and can be assigned under the Image Product column, you can assign multiple Product images within the import file and we’ll do the downloading/saving/resizing on our end.

    The best way to get up to speed with how our importer works is to use our free Store Exporter and manually create a few sample Products with all details provided, then export it to CSV to see what our importer expects to work with. Store Exporter Deluxe (which unlocks additional fields related to Orders, etc.) comes free with Product Importer Deluxe, hope this helps 🙂
