    I already have a custom post-type named “products.” The post type contains about 300 products. If I install WooCommerce, will it wipe out my custom post-type or will it use it and display my existing products?

  • Hello!

    BEFORE TRYING ANYTHING, please backup your site!
    It should not remove them, you will see them, but it will not appear correctly as a Woocommerce product.

    One thing you can do is change the custom post type of old products to something else. THEN do 2 things:
    – change in database the product type for current products
    – change in code the post type from product to the new name

    Making the change in a good way it might work
