Woocommerce osCommerce Import



  1. You must install the main “WooCommerce – excelling eCommerce” plugin in order to use this plugin
  2. You must have MySQL remote access to the osCommerce database (most hosting providers will allow you to setup remote access)

After installing the plugin go to Woocommerce -> osCommerce Import and enter the osCommerce database info, and the URL to the osCommerce store.

All products and categories will be imported at once (import is not staggered yet). If you have a lot of products to import and it is timing out just run the importer several times until all products are imported (products that have already been imported are skipped over).

If there is enough demand I may added a staggering system to avoid timeouts.

Note that when importing customers the passwords from osCommerce are NOT copied over due to the MD5+Salt encryption. New passwords are generated, imported customers will need to do a forgotten password to get their new password.


  1. Unzip/Extract the plugin zip to your computer
  2. Upload \woocommerce-osc-import\ folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Go to Woocommerce -> osCommerce Import
