Pricing

You may have seen some references on our site to annual licensing or renewals.

All plugins currently come with a lifetime license, no matter what the site says.

We’re currently running tests before we make the switch to annual pricing. Check the Discounts tab to purchase our other plugins and get a lifetime license before they’re gone.

I Understand I Have a Lifetime License
Now is your last chance to buy a lifetime license before we switch to annual pricing. Existing licenses will be unaffected.

Import From External Source or Use Existing File

In Step 1 of the import process, you'll be asked to specify how you want to import your data. The following options are available: Upload a file, Download a file, and Use existing file. This documentation explains how to use the Download a file and Use existing file options.

Download a file

You can download a file from an external source using this option. When selected, you'll be prompted to download the file from a URL or from a FTP/SFTP source.

From URL

This will let you input a URL to download the file from. This URL should point directly to the file that you want to import from.

Download A File From URL Example

You'll know it's working when you're prompted to download/save the file as soon as the URL is opened in a browser.

If your file is protected by HTTP protection, you can follow this guide: Password Protected Files.

From FTP/SFTP

This will let you download the file from an FTP or SFTP source. Once you input all of the credentials required to access the FTP/SFTP server, click on Select File to define the file path to use.

Download a file From FTP:SFTP WP All Import

After the FTP file path has been defined, you can change it to apply any of the available formats, such as {newest.ext}, {any.ext}, {oldest.ext} and {custom.ext}, if needed.

Use existing file

Alternatively, you can use any existing files that have been uploaded to the /wp-content/uploads/wpallimport/files/ folder. All files from that folder will appear in this list:

Download A File Use Existing File

How to Enable Scheduling

When using Upload a file, you won't be able to set up any schedules for that import.

Scheduling Options Disabled Upload A File

You can modify the import file source via the import settings in All ImportManage ImportsSettings. Just select a new import source and set it up as explained in this documentation.
