Ecwid is a powerful ecommerce solution that allows to create a professionally looking online store and use multiple sales channels to sell your goods and increase your customer base.
If you already have a WooCommerce store and would like to start selling through additional channels like Facebook, you can sign up with Ecwid and bulk export your products and categories from WooCommerce to Ecwid with the help of our migration tool.
In this article:
To bulk import your WooCommerce products and categories to Ecwid:
- Go to your WordPress Dashboard → Tools → Import.
- Find the Ecwid products and categories tool and click Run Importer.
- Click Import your WooCommerce catalog to Ecwid.
- Here you can see the Import Summary:
a. the number of products and categories in your WooCommerce store;
b. the number of products and categories in your Ecwid store;
c. the total number of products and categories in your Ecwid store after import.
The Import Summary helps you mind the maximum number of products and categories you can import to Ecwid and increase the store products limit, if necessary, by upgrading your Ecwid account.
- Check Remove demo products, if you have a newly created Ecwid store with sample products. This will help you bulk-delete demo goods.
- Check Overwrite existing products with matching SKU, if you have already imported the products and categories from WooCommerce to your Ecwid store and would like to update their details.
- Click Import.
You will be able to monitor the import progress and see the number of transferred products and categories, when the import is complete. For large catalogs with hundreds of products the import will take a while.
You can go on and check your products in Ecwid to make sure they have been transferred correctly. Click Go to your Ecwid products or navigate to Ecwid → Catalog → Products.
Now that you have created an Ecwid store and imported the products, we’d like to give you a quick guide on what to do next.
