    I’m currently redesigning my WooCommerce website. The live version has been running WooCommerce 2.6.14 while my new staging version is running 3.0.6. I’m about ready to launch the redesign but I first want to sync all of the WooCommerce sales/refunds/users that have continued growing on the live site.

    My question is: can I export my 2.6.14 sales data from the live site and safely import it into my 3.0.6 staging site? I know that 3.0 required me to run a “data upgrader” so my concern is the 2.x data will cause a conflict with the 3.x data.

    Additionally, when I attempt to sync data from the live site to my staging site, do I need to export the new Users first (who are tied to my WooCommerce sales) or should I export the actual sales first, then export Users?

    Thank you!

    Cant you simply apply the theme to the new site after upgrading woocommerce to 3.0.6 in place?

    @davidfguk thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, no because basically everything else on the site has been edited (theme, custom fields, WP & WC settings, pages, some new products). Most everything on the redesign in staging has changed so I want to keep those edits and only re-import the WooCommerce order data (orders, refunds, subscriptions, and the new users associated with these orders).

    Hi,
    Cant you make a local copy of the 2x live site, upgrade it locally to the same version as your test site, then copy the info’s over once their both on the same version no’ ?

    @davidfguk yes, that could be one approach and I appreciate the suggestion.

    The final piece of this puzzle is deciding if I need to export/import Users first, or the actual WooCommerce Order data.
