    Hi tyankee, yes when you’re specifying the name of the Category use the following example:

    Category Parent>Category Child

    Currently support for importing Product Categories is only 1 level deep, future releases will be recursive allow deep sub-category support.

    Hi tyankee, that’s correct. 🙂

    Hi Michael. How is the recursive sub-category support coming along?

    I have only just realised that we cannot use Root>Product>Subproduct>Accessories

    I guess I should have looked at the support forums before purchase 🙁

    Apart from that, good job!

    Hi Mentor, I’m working to get my head around recursive sub-category support… I may need to reach out to other community developers for extending sub-category support.

    We desperately need multiple sub-category support. Most of the products in our CSV file are at least 4 categories deep (i.e. Main Category > Brand > Set > Subset). Without multiple category support in Product Categories Importer, I think Product Importer Deluxe is almost useless for us. Since we can’t import our category structure, we can’t import our products. I hope you release this update soon!

    Hi ageorge, I’ve just sent you an early release of the updated Product Categories Importer; if it works a treat for you I’ll then make the update available to others.

    I’m now moving onto adding this support to Product Importer Deluxe.

    Hi Mentor, updated Product Categories Importer; sweetest release of this Plugin to date. Ripped out the unneccesary bits like ‘almost’ requiring a separate CSV just listing Categories; all Category data is now read from the Category column within the master Product CSV, even ‘>’ (sub-category) and ‘|’ (separate category) are supported.

    I’m finalising support for this in Product Importer Deluxe then will make the next release available, aiming for end of the weekend.

    Hi Mentor, just updated Product Importer Deluxe to 2.3; give it a whirl, I’ve thrown some of my meanest master CSV files and it’s worked a treat.

    Is there a plan to utilize the different groups feature? Right now it appears that you can only upload to the category group.

    Hi cchapman43, not likely in 3.7; it’s a low priority. WP e-Commerce 3.8 removes Group support and lumps all Product Categories under one ‘group’, that’s what I’ve seen anyhow, if this changes I’ll definitely re-consider this.
