    Thanks Roy. Appreciate the info as I was not aware of any of these products. I also am not overly technical as I spend time I have writing content which I enjoy to do. Thanks for making me aware of this. Joe

      Thank you for taking the time to comment Joe, I really do appreciate it.

      This is actually why or one of the reasons why I actually wrote this post, there is so much available on the Internet today that can help our businesses grow, this is just one product of many. I hope to write more articles on the subject.

    This is the first time that I have heard about this but it sounds to be very interesting. I agree with you especially if you want persons to purchase your product there should be some training that is made available to help persons to understand how to use that product.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment Norman. I think there are many many products on the Internet that can potentially help us, but we never actually hear about them and I guess datafeedr is one of them! I will keep you posted on how I get on with datafeeder in future blog posts.

    Hi Roy I am just wondering if they have a free version.

    I have just installed Woocommerce on one of my sites as a bit of a practice run at having a shop front on my blogging site and I’m not sure exactly what other plugins I need at this time.

    I noticed you said you had 5000 products in a CSV file so when you add products do you add them to your CSV file for later use? I have been adding straight into the website but this sounds like a better idea in case of failure or for whatever reason needing to reinstall all the products I have chosen.

    Your thoughts appreciated.

      Hello Heidi,

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, I really do appreciate it.

      In answer to your question, I’m afraid that Datafeedr doesn’t have a free version, however you can see the basic starter version here they will also give you a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. I much prefer datafeedr to WP Import, I do think the WP Import is good, but in my experience it is much higher maintenance than datafeedr.

      I have over 7000 products on one site that were added to the site via WP Import and it could potentially have more products, however, it is quite heavy on the server, I am using Wealthy Affiliate hosting, so it does take quite a long time to update, sometimes up to around eight hours.

      As I mentioned in my blog post, I have used datafeedr before, however, it was quite a few years ago and I know that they have added more functionality now, I have only been using Datafeedr for a few days, so I am testing on a testing site. Woo Commerce is also new to me, last time when I used datafeedr it was not used in conjunction with Woo Commerce, however, this does improve the functionality greatly.

      If you’re not technologically minded I would definitely go for datafedr, it also has more functionality and is easier to use than WP Import there is a monthly cost involved though. Whereas WP Import is a one-off payment but there is more technical stuff to learn and a much bigger learning curve in my experience.

      Please feel free to ask any more questions that you may have Heidi.

      Roy
