Uploading Products into WooCommerce from Cin7

Last updated 15/03/2018

Cin7 can upload products into WooCommerce. This article explains how.

Overview


Cin7 can upload product information into WooCommerce. As WooCommerce has more fields than Cin7, after uploading you'll need to add in additional information into WooCommerce, such as SEO information.

There are a few prerequisites for products to be uploaded

  • The product has not already been matched to an existing product in WooCommerce.
  • The product has the WooCommerce channel ticked in its product details page.

We recommend that if products already exist in WooCommerce, you first download and map products - see Downloading Products from WooCommerce. This will avoid creating duplicate products in WooCommerce.

Uploading Products


By default Update Products is switched off; to switch it on:

  1. From the left navigation, select Integrations, then WooCommerce.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Check Enable Upload Products.
  4. At the bottom of this page, click Save Settings.

To upload products:

  1. From the left navigation, select Integrations, then WooCommerce.
  2. From the Product Status tile, click Upload Products.
  3. Click Upload Products.
    This will upload all products in the list below. To download these products in a spreadsheet click Download Products.
    To filter this list, search for products below. Clicking Upload Products when the list is filtered will only upload the products shown in the list.

The fields that are uploaded are detailed below.

FAQs

I have changed product details in Cin7, can I upload this change to WooCommerce?

Cin7 can only upload products to WooCommerce once, and changes thereafter will have to be made manually in both systems.
