  1. Install WooCommerce Store Exporter to your Wordpress site: https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-exporter/
  2. Go to WP Admin panel → WooCommerce → Store Export and click "Export products" link
  3. Choose the following fields on the appeared page:

    • Sale price
    • Weight
    • Category
    • Featured image
    • Quantity
  4. Click Export Product button and save CSV file on your computer
  5. Open resulted CSV file in MS Office or similar editor and make sure that fields format is suitable for import:
    • Product SKU is not empty and unique for each product
    • Price and Sale Price fields are not empty for all products. Set 0.00 value for empty fields
    • Weight field is not empty for all tangible products that require shipping. Use 0 value, if shipping cost is not calculated by product weight.
    • Leave Weight field empty for the virtual and downloadable products
  6. Go to Ecwid control panel → Catalog → Product and click "Import products" button
  7. Choose downloaded CSV file with products exported from WooCommerce
  8. Choose "Comma" in Delimiter field

  11. Click "Import products" button
  12. Congratulations! Your CSV-file is placed in a queue and will be imported in a several minutes.

​Now your Ecwid store is almost ready. Just need to setup payment and shipping methods:

  1. Go to System Settings → Payments page to choose payment methods for your store
  2. Enable one of PayPal methods or use others online payment processors, like Authorize.Net, Stripe, etc.
