WooCommerce importing products from .xml feed (6 posts)

    I'm trying to import products from distributor which has .xml feed of their products and all info about them.

    The problem is, that as I know WooCommerce is more friendly with .csv files. I also know that WooCommerce has dummy_data.xml file, which imported through WordPress Importer can import few products for testing plugin. And the last problem is that distributors .xml product structure is different from dummy_data.xml.

    The question is, how I can modify plugin that it could accept mine structure? Where should I look, what should I search for? And it would be superb if WooCommerce automaticly could update that distributors .xml file from .xml feed url I have.

    Any leads how I could achieve something like this? Thank you very much in advance. ;)

    Hi KazikJ93 did you find a solution for this?

    I'm now looking at an epos system that works with xml files for all the stock.
    I think we may be looking for the same thing.

    I have been trying to get products from an xml feed to woocommerce. So far less than perfect results but this is what I did -

    1. Converted xml file to csv here http://www.luxonsoftware.com/Converter/XmlToCsv

    2. Downloaded this plugin - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/woocommerce-csvimport/

    The products are there, but the data is a bit of a mess...

    I struggled with this for a very long time ... But i recently found WP All Import .. It has an add on for Woocommerce and it's flawless ! It's a little bit pricey but it really does do what it says .. I've used it without the add-on for numerous csv & xml affiliate feeds and it has never failed on any format ! It allows you to map the fields from the feed to the fields within WordPress or Woocommerce using a Drag & Drop interface .. really simple. The standard version doesn't work with variable products, which is why i recently purchased the Woocom Add On .. which makes life very simple.
    Just so you know, i have nothing to do with the developers and this is truly the first time i have ever "plugged" a plugin. But i searched for something like this for nearly 2 years. There is a limited free version, so i suggest you give it a try .. Good luck !
