    Hi!

    Where do I import products from Woocommerce?

    I’m switching to CPT because I don’t need Woocommerce catalog.

    Appreciate a quick answer!

    As long as you keep a post type slug of “product” I imagine a lot should automatically “port over” without any extra effort. However, any WooCommerce-specific data/storage/functionality is going to be gone, but I somewhat imagine you realize that already. Probably more just looking to not have to re-create everything.

    So, match the slugs, and you should have a good amount already covered.

    Thank you @tw2113 I did an export and import!

    However, none of the 600+ products did inherit its parent post *sigh* and the attached images of each product are no longer attached to its post anymore. Why?

    I also noticed that the whole category taxonomy (with a very deep hierarchy) was imported, but it is only visible in the admin menu panel and not in the post editor… and as soon as I deactivate Woocommerce it is gone.

    So it went pretty bad after all.

    Hard for me to say, since I’ve never personally tried or been tasked with moving products out of WooCommerce into a standalone post type. I have to believe there’s a lot of deep integration with their entire ecommerce setup that would need considered.
