CSV importer not working – product_type

  • Hi there,

    I am having a problem with the importer.

    First of all – why can’t you delete products? On every program I have used like this (which have always been free) there is a ‘delete’ column and you just hit yes.

    The main problem I am having is that I can’t change the product_type. I want to set all my products to ‘variable’. They’re currently ‘simple’.

    The odd thing is I’m sure I had it working with no problems earlier, but now it doesn’t respond. It’s like it’s ignoring the column completely, even though I have it mapped.

    What’s also odd is if I do an export, the exported spreadsheet doesn’t even have a product_type column (I set a couple of products to variable manually to see if they came up).

    I have no idea what’s going on and have spent so long trying to make it work I could have just changed all the items myself one by one. CSV is starting to feel like a bit of a waste of money 🙁

    Hope there is an easy solution.

  • I should add I’ve tested it and other attributes and parameters seem to update fine (e.g. Price)

    You can just delete products from the “Products” section of Woocommerce; It’s hardly a major inconvenience (compared to other issues i’ve run into with this plugin & others).

    As far as I knew, product type was not a supported field in this plugin.. I’m curious how you managed to get it mapped and working before the error. If you could post what you did, I’m sure a lot of other people in this forum could benefit from it, and maybe even help you find a solution.

    Going the free way has its perks, but I’ve spent way too much time dealing with functionality and issues with both this plugin, and the other free one on github (https://github.com/dgrundel/woo-product-importer).

    If you really want all the stuff. Buy the one from woocommerce and stop crying. Make it your self but do not be a jerk!
