    Why is bulk products importing so slow with woocommerce?

    I am thinking of import approximately 500.000 products.
    I upload pictures of the products as an external url.
    So there is no slowness in the picture upload. I’m just uploading text file.

    it only takes 2 hours for 1000 products.
    If I try to load 500.000 products. I have to work for about 41 days.

    How can I add such a high number of products to my site in less time ?

    Thank you.

    Hello there,

    So there is no slowness in the picture upload. I’m just uploading text file.

    Images slow down the import significantly. An external image is still slow because the image has to be downloaded first and then uploaded again in WooCommerce to be used.

    The fastest way would be to pre-upload the images in your system and use their file names, instead of an external import.

    Also, 500k products are a lot, it is never going to take 5 minutes. Changing the image import method anyway should significantly improve the speed.
