The Solid Commerce columns “product weight”, “product height”, “product length” and “product width” will be mapped over to WooCommerce. We take the weight setting you used on WooCommerce connection page and covert your weight in that measurement. Weight and Dimensions are not required fields in order to list your product. You can add them if you wish.



WooCommerce Attributes

Before you add these product attributes to your excel spreadsheet, you need to add the attributes to Solid Commerce first. You can do this by going to Products>Manage Product Attributes > Type the name of the attribute ex. “Woocommerce short_description”> then check “Is Searchable” and “Is Public”>then click “Add New Attribute” button.

Product Attribute:woocommerce short_description

Product Attribute:woocommerce categories_ids

To find the product category ID:

WooCommerce Variations


mystore parent sku

This is the virtual sku that you will apply to all your child items which will connect them

mystore option template

Enter the name of your variation attribute in this field. If there is more than one variation ex. Size and Color use double colons to separate between the values. Ex “Size::Color” You should only enter this data in the parent sku row. Do not enter any values in the child sku rows for this column.


Variation Product Attributes

For the actual variation attributes such as Size and Color fill out each skus row with its attribute. For the parent sku row make sure to include all the possible variations options and separate each option with double colon. Ex. In the screenshot below there are to types of variations and two variation types per variation.  For size there is two sizes medium “M” and large “L” and for color “Orange” and “Black”. The top row is the parent sku row.  



WooCommerce Product Tags:

In order to use WooCommerce tags through Solid Commerce you first need to create the tags inside of WooCommerce first. Once you create them you will need to add the WooCommerce Tag column to Solid Commerce as an attribute.

  • Products>Manage Product Attributes> enter the value ‘woocommerce tags'> check ‘Is Searchable' and 'Is Public' then click 'Add New Attribute'.

Next you will add this column to your excel template. You can add more than one tag to a particular SKU by separating the values with a comma. Ex. 'leather,waterproof’


Now you are ready to upload this data to your SKU(s). Make sure to check the box 'Upload Product’ during your excel upload since this considered product level data.

Other Key Takeaways:

-If you already have tags set up on your WooCommerce store before product import we will import those tags into Solid Commerce.

-You can list with and update tags to your products through Solid Commerce
