    Hey Dave,

    thanks for the video. What do you think is the fastest way to upload 50’000+ affiliate products to woo commerce? WP ALL IMPORT or DATAFEEDR? Do you think its possible to upload 50’000 products within a couple of hours with WP All Import?

    Cheers

      Hi Julian – I’ve sent a speed boost over to the team at WP All Import which they have accepted and are integrating into their core. If you have that speed boost (not out yet) then you can load 50,000 products within a few hours.

      Similarly, I sent Datafeedr speed boosts over to their team which on my test server increased throughput from about 50,000 products per day to 500,000 products per day. Those speed boosts will be in their core code too.

      So, either/or is the answer.

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the response. I don’t have that speed boost. Hope they will update the version asap. Or do you know where i can get it and an explanation how to im implement it?
    managed vServer is still Apache. Hope they will make it possible with nginx soon.

    Hey Dave,

    Such a nice video.
    Would you please tell me how to download or get the datafeed in CSV file? Such as Amazon Products.
    I don’t know how to do that.
    Hope you could email me once you see my comment

      Hi – to get Amazon products in a CSV file you’ll have to use a third party tool – Amazon provide access to their products through an API only. A couple of good tools are WooZone or even zonasinhunter is useful for getting product details. Once you have the ASIN or UPC codes, WooZone lets you import those products easily.

        Dave,

        I downloaded Target’s datafeed in a CSV file, it has almost 400,000 products all that I would like to import into WP All Imports…so I have to focus on only certain categories 1st and great smaller categories to WP All Imports? For example do I have to format the categories for baby diapers, baby bottles, etc? Thanks

          The easiest way would be to use the categories from the feed and have wp all import build the categories for you as it imports.

          If you are importing from multiple stores, you will need to create a mapping file with 2 columns – the source category and target category – this will map categories to the ones you choose for your store
