Merge Products and Variations with the Product CSV Import Suite

Learn how to merge changes to your current products and variations with an updated CSV.

Required: Product CSV Import Suite is a premium WooCommerce extension included with WordPress Ecommerce Hosting or as a standalone purchase.
  1. Sign in to WordPress.
  2. Create a CSV, or alter an existing CSV. To make sure changes are mapped to the correct location, include one of the following columns: post_id and/or sku
  3. Navigate to WooCommerce > CSV Import Suite and click Merge Products or Merge Variations.
  4. Choose your CSV from your computer or enter a path to the file.
  5. Adjust the delimiter or leave as-is (optional).
  6. Merge empty cells. If this is not selected, then empty cells will be ignored when importing things such as attributes (optional).
  7. Click Upload file and import.
  8. Map the fields for your products and/or variations.
  9. Click Submit to merge your products and/or variations.

• Merging new data into already existing product data will overwrite the older data. To keep any existing data, the data will need to be in the document to be merged, as shown in this WooCommerce example.
• Merging downloadable products doesn't automatically grant access for customers who have previously purchased those products.
