  1. Upload the CSV File:
  • Click on the Import button.
  • Choose the CSV file you prepared earlier.
  1. Map CSV Columns to Product Fields:
  • Dokan will ask you to map the columns in your CSV file to the corresponding WooCommerce product fields.
  • Ensure each column is mapped correctly (e.g., product_name to Name, price to Regular price, etc.).
  1. Run the Import:
  • After mapping, start the import process.

Additional Tips

  • Data Validation:
  • Ensure your CSV file is correctly formatted and free of errors. Invalid data can cause import failures or incorrect product listings.
  • Image URLs:
  • Ensure that image URLs are accessible and valid. The import process will pull images from these URLs to display on the product pages.
  • Backup:
  • Before performing bulk imports, it’s a good practice to back up your site to avoid data loss in case of errors.
