    You can import xml into WordPress by default. Take a look at the dummy_data.xml file in WooCommerce.

    If you want csv support, take a look at our CSV Product Import extension; http://www.woothemes.com/products/product-csv-import-suite/

    Thanks

    I think a $100 plugin isn't quite the answer he was looking for. Kinda steers away from the ethos of wordpress...

    There is nothing in GPL or open source principles that forbids commercialism. Plugin developers have to eat too and not everything can be free. :-)

    Undoubtedly correct. On the other hand, I'm beginning to feel like woocommerce answer every question with "buy a(nother) plugin for that". I too am looking for a way of editing dummy_data.xml, but woo's answer is a plugin that I can't afford and would in all honesty struggle to justify at that price even if I *could* afford it

    You could try this plugin - not sure how it compares with the paid option above: http://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-csvimport/

    I've had success using my fork of the wordpress csv importer found here:
    https://github.com/BHEADRICK/csv-importer

    It gets a little murky when you start trying to add in attributes and variations.

    I haven't tried out the free woocommerce-csvimport for more complex scenarios, but you should probably start there, and if that doesn't work for you, maybe you'll see the value in the paid option.
