MarketPress Product Importer


Take MarketPress to the next level. As the name implies, MarketPress Product Importer enables users of the WPMU DEV plugin MarketPress, to quickly and easily import products to their online store, or product listing site. If you manage affiliate sites, you need this plugin.

When this plugin is activated, a new database table is created for storing the product data temporarily. In order to run the importer, that table needs to be populated with the users product information. I’m planning to integrate the CSV import directly into the plugin, but for now, I’m using CSVisual, an edited version of Quick CSV import with Visual Mapping by Alexander Skakunov.

Once the product data has been added to the (_mpimporter) table, the plugin will recognize it, and show the “number of products” available, as well as, an “Import Now” button.

Simply click the “Import Now” button, and the plugin will import your new products. NOTE: Data in the (_mpimporter) table is not deleted, so running the import again will just create copies of the products in MarketPress. I’m working on an update to handle this, so users will have the ability to update existing MarketPress products, without having a duplicate record created.
