    Hi Yamaryam,

    Thanks for using the Simple Affiliate Shop Plugin.

    Batch import is something that I have on my list so it will be coming in a release soon. If you have set up your products already you can use the standard WordPress export/import to move products from one site to another. Currently you will need to reimport the images and this is one of the things I am working on solving as a part of import and export. Keep an eye on the releases coming soon for this new feature.

    Hi Brian. I noticed that you were discussing the same topic that you and I discussed recently. I just wanted to let you know that I found a very interesting section of Commission Junction’s web services that may be of help with getting some information for products to put into a store using a batch import. Check out this section of the API Developer’s section that I found…I have quoted it here:

    After reviewing the associated API documentation, you may implement the desired services to support your business. Each service requires you to provide a number of request parameters in order to receive the desired information (response fields) back from the service. You may develop in any number of programming environments that enable you to make REST requests and provide the required parameters (see Request Parameters section of each individual Web service topic). Your web application or page must be able to process the appropriate response fields indicated for each particular service (see Response Fields section within a service topic).

    If I am correct in reading this, we can ask Commission Junction to provide us with a file that would contain the information requested in the order requested. If that is the case, could you use this to help with batch import? I’d be willing to request the required information from them and send it to you so we could move forward with this possibility.

    Please let me know if you have the time to take a look at it and let me know exactly what info we need and the order it needs to be in and I’ll send a request as soon as I get the info from you.

    Thanks for any input on this. I really need to get this store up and running and I’d like to use your plugin if possible. I really like the way it is set up and I’m sure that I’m not the only one that would be very interested in having this done! Please let me know.

    The link to our site is again: in case you need to see it.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Batch importation would be a godsend! This plugin does exactly what I require, but it’s a bit of a lengthy process if you have several products to maintain.

    Very happy to be a guinea pig if you’re working on something.

    Hi DIY! I couldn’t agree more. This is a great plugin but far to exhausting to add each product in individually. I’m hoping we will hear from Brian soon with some good news! I too would gladly act as a test site for any experimentation that might be needed!

    The ball’s in your court Brian! You’ve got a couple of guinea pigs here if you need us! 🙂

    Hi DIY and Denise,

    Sorry to have been a little AWOL recently – major client going live and very demanding. I am on leave for the rest of the week and hoping to hide away and get you some batch upload code running – I have been working on this for the client so should be able to leverage this over to PG Simple Affiliate Shop.

    I’ll repeat this in the other thread – as you say this one is marked as resolved so let’s continue over there,
