Importing Products in Multisites
Recently I was testing my new plugin related to a multisite network of WooCommerce stores and noticed that before doing a product import into one of the stores in a network you first need to do some additional network configuration.
I mean if you just go to a product import and try to upload a CSV file for example, you will definitely get an error like that:
Luckily, all we need is just a little configuration of our multisite network. In order to do so from your network dashboard just go to Settings > Network Settings and scroll down till the “Upload Settings”.
That’s pretty much it.
Now you can go to any sub-store of your multisite network and perform the import. The next question is – would it possible to import products to all WooCommerce sub-stores at once?
Import Products to All Sub-sites at Once
By default both WooCommerce and WordPress Multisite don’t have a feature for that but it can be implemented easily with my Simple Multisite Crossposting plugin for example. Below is the step by step:
- Install and network activate the plugin.
- Go to a specific store settings, in Sites > All sites choose a store you are going to perform an import from, then click “Edit” link, then “Crosspost” tab and turn “Auto mode” on:
That’s it! Now you can go to this specific store and import your products. They will automatically appear on all sub-stores which have WooCommerce installed and are allowed for crossposting in settings.
