If you’re looking to move your store from Etsy to WooCommerce, or just want to set up your own personal store outside of Etsy, you can use our simple product import guide below to get your Etsy product listings into a new or existing WooCommerce store.
A few things to keep in mind:
- Etsy does not export the prices or quantities of variants. If you have variants, their prices will match after importing, and the quantities will be set to 0. You can follow this guide on how to set up Product Variations once you have imported all your products.
- Digital products imported from Etsy will be listed as physical products. That is not a big problem though – WooCommerce is build to handle digital products as easily as it handles physical products. To list these items as digital products, follow our guide here on setting up digital products and this more in-depth look at digital file handling.
- Manually created .csv files won’t import correctly. To successfully import products from Etsy you must follow the steps below using a .csv file exported from Etsy.
- When Etsy product has multiple images, none of the images are imported. When an Etsy product has multiple images, these images have their own separate column headers in the CSV (e.g., IMAGE1, IMAGE2, etc.). However, WooCommerce requires a CSV to have a single column for images. Products with multiple images can have the image URLs contained within that single column, and the URLs are separated by commas. To fix the multiple product images issue, modify the CSV slightly so that all of the images in the IMAGE1, IMAGE2, IMAGE3, and IMAGE4 columns are combined into one.
