Importing variation groups with WP All Import

From version 1.0.1 it is possible to import variation groups via CSV when using WP All Import.

Your CSV should look like this:

Product IDs Attributes Show Image? Title Style
90,96,93,99 pa_color,pa_size 1 Your Group Name buttons
  • The Product IDs column contains a comma separated list of the product IDs in your group. You can also use product SKUs in this column.
  • The Attributes column contains a comma separated list of attribute slugs to link your products by.
  • The Show Image? column contains a 1 or a 0. Should the first attribute use the product image.
  • The Title column is your group title. It'll also be used as the unique identifier (or you can add another column for that).
  • The Style column should be either "buttons" or "dropdown". This is how the attribute values will be displayed on the product page.

Make sure your file is saved in the CSV format, then follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to All import > New Import.
  2. Upload your CSV file.
  3. Once uploaded, click New items and then select Linked Variations from the dropdown.
  4. Now click Continue to Step 2.
  5. Check your data, then click Continue to Step 3.
  6. Drag the title cell into the Title field.
  7. Now create 4 custom fields; iconic_wlv_product_ids (or iconic_wlv_product_skus, if you used SKUs), iconic_wlv_attributesiconic_wlv_show_image, and iconic_wlv_style.
  8. Make sure you drag the correct spreadsheet data into the Value part of the custom fields.
  9. Click Continue to Step 4.
  10. Set a Unique Identifier.
  11. Now click Continue.
  12. Now click Confirm and Run import.

Your groups will now be imported and the products assigned accordingly!
