Update stock and price of existing products

Using the advanced options, you can easily update the stock, price, and similar details of the existing products on import.

Import/update product images – featured image and gallery images

Now you can import or update the product images of multiple WooCommerce products simultaneously with ease. With the plugin, you can import/update all the gallery images of a product along with the product image, also known as the featured image.

Import categories and assign products to them

By default, during import, the products will be imported with categories (includes both multiple and hierarchical categories).

You can also check out this video to get a quick understanding of the plugin.


The free version of the plugin lets you import and export: Products, Product Reviews, Product Tags and Product Categories.


The WooCommerce Product Import Export Plugin takes the CSV (Comma-Separated Values) file as input. You must create a CSV (UTF-8 Encoded) file and enter the product details in a structured format.

This is to match each field of a CSV file to the field of a particular product which otherwise Admin needs to input manually. For example, the post_title field gets mapped to the product name and the regular_price field gets mapped to the regular price of the product.

You can create the CSV from scratch or you can export products to get the format of the CSV. You can use a spreadsheet program, such as LibreOffice, Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice, or Google Spreadsheets for creating and modifying the CSV file. Save this file with extension “.CSV”.

After entering all details about products in a spreadsheet, you can import products to your WooCommerce store. With this plugin, you can also export and download product details as a CSV.
