Downloading Products from WooCommerce

Last updated 08/11/2019

This article outlines the process of downloading products from WooCommerce into Cin7.

Overview


Products can be downloaded from WooCommerce and imported into Cin7.

There are three situations that are relevant to this module:

  • You have no products in Cin7 and products in WooCommerce.
    In this situation you will download products into Cin7, detailed below.
  • You have some products in Cin7 and some in WooCommerce.
    In this situation, you will download products not already in Cin7 and match the rest, detailed below.
  • You have products in both Cin7 and WooCommerce.
    In this situation you will match products between the two systems.

Any products that don't already exist in Cin7 will be imported.

If there are some products that you do not want to import into Cin7, these can be manually removed during the download process using a spreadsheet.
