I have increased the time limit to 900

Now for some feeds I get fatal error


Under importers also says: Import Error: Undefined variable: set_new_data

What does that mean?

anyway, time limit is also better to increase

I mean that feed can have some broken item. For example, it's 101 item. So, when import got this item, it just can't process it and fails. You can check import log to see error code.

I don't exactly understand what you are saying. For those products which I manage to import all links are fine if that is what you mean.

Feed usually imports about 50-100 products when 504 error appears and then it just stucks and nothing happens. Then I start import again and it imports again 50-100 products until it freezes again.

This happens with all feeds.

check if your feed has correct links in items which are accessible

Depends on a feed from 3 000 to 21 000 items. Digital products are in question.

What would be best limit to increase it to? My hosting currently has it at 600

Igor Sunz Support Agent

You can ask your hoster to increase time limit for script execution. Also
check your feed. Maybe you have too much items in feed and your server is
not powerful enough to import such amount

I am constantly getting an error 504 when performing import using  ImportWP. 

What does that mean and how to fix it? Products are not importing,

I am still testing ImportWP PRO so I am asking for that way of importing. I am asking about putting two or more values under the SKU field because I have 4 feeds that have the same value which can be used and that is their product id.

So if I put under field "Product SKU: {/product_id}" for those 4 feeds they will be merged.

What about the rest of the feeds? Should I just leave SKU field empty for those feeds which don't have the same product ID and they will be merged based on product name if it is the same?

Igor Sunz Support Agent

You can add but this has no sense because sku is single field with single
value. You can merge values in sku but this is not required. Plugin already
must merge products with the same name as i remember.

Mark Rosso

So I can I add several identifiers under the SKU field?

For example Product SKU: {/product_id}{/name}

Igor Sunz Support Agent

You can't merge them if they don't have anything common. Anyway, price
comparison site is not only single type of site, you can make deal site
without price comparison

Thank you for the video link.


Regarding the second thing: "You can set product name to sku field. Products must have 100% identical names to be merged."


Unfortunately, all feeds don't have a same common field that can be used and in most cases, they don't have 100% identical names.

How to merge them then? Can I under the SKU field add several identifiers?

So it would look like Product SKU: {/product_id}{/name}

In this case if there is no common ID, then product tile is used. If there is no product title then third fallback is used if added, etc. Would this work?

but this is for RH import plugin which is deprecated. Anyway, with addons,
you will have the same fields

How to merge the same products from different feeds if they don't have a common field like SKU or product ID? Will in that case products be merged based on product name?

Yes, I know that. I have already tried in past using WP all import PRO plugin and those addons. But where is the video guide you had? I can't find it anymore. I need it to guide me. Do you have a link?
Igor Sunz Support Agent

Sorry, they are for WP all import PRO plugin. you can install them and you
will get additional panels to import to Content Egg and Post offer
sections. They are identical for those which are in Import PRO and do the
same things

The feed is provided directly from merchants so I cant edit it and exclude products especially as it is provided via external URL and import needs to run on schedule and add new products and update prices.


I have most feeds in USD but some in EUR. Is there an option to automatically convert from EUR to USD or some way how this can be accomplished?


Also, I am not sure which is a better plugin for me. Though ImportWP PRO is simpler to use I have a license for WP All Import which I find far better with more options for this purpose and for which I can contact support and ask for help.

Where can I find a video tutorial for WP All Import? I can't seem to find it anymore.

You import each feed as separate import and you can choose which import
have images and description. All other can be without images, they will be
merged.

You cant choose to exclude products. This must be made in your feed. Later,
we can add option to filter feeds before import

Hi,

I have watched the whole video of 27 min several times. Even watched some older videos.

I know how to add attachment and description filed. That was not my question.

As I have at least 15 feeds to import my question was can I choose description and attachment from just one feed to be added in WC products? Will that work?


Also, how to exclude certain products from importing?

Igor Sunz Support Agent

You can use only one field to merge products.

You can attach image in attachment and you can enable description field.
Both are described in video. Please, watch full video and not only part
about price comparison

Hi,

I am looking to add a price comparison using ImportWP PRO. I have watched your instructions video at least 3 times. I have several feeds ready. As I understand I will need to choose the WooCommerce products template when importing. I don't have any WooCommerce products added currently.

So I would like for each product to have a description, featured image, and then price comparison from different stores.

How to add product description and featured image for each product? Is it enough to import description and featured image from one feed and for all others don't?


I also understand I need to have a common product SKU or something to merge each offer to the same product. Some feeds have the same SKU but most don't. Can I use both title and SKU so that feeds that don't have SKU can be connected using the title?
