  • I’ve migrated data from other shops into woocommerce before, and it’s not that hard, but what you really want to do is export that data into a csv, and then use a decent csv import plugin to import the data.

    I use a free CSV Import plugin for importing products to woocommerce, and it works pretty well. It’s not made specifically for woocommerce, so there are a few hoops to jump through, but it’s not that difficult.

    Here’s a template to use

    there are still some manual steps needed to get attributes set up properly… Maybe that’ll be my next feature.

    Thanks bheadrick for answering, but what I really want to know is if it’s possible to merge two database (the one of my physical shop and woocommerce) and if a customer buys 5 candies on my physical shop and I have 100 in total, I would like to be updated automatically both database at the same time, so in WooCommerce and in my shop it would remain 95 candies.

    Thank you,

    You can’t merge the databases per se, but you could add a function to the add_to_cart action which does an ajax call to your physical shop db to check whether the inventory count for each item being sold matches. (you’d want the ajax handler to have read/write access to your physical shop db so it could update the count there)

    so, merge? no synchronize? yes
