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.

This guide focuses on exporting WooCommerce variable products. As such, we will explain the export fields associated with variable products specifically.

If you want to learn more about the other export fields available for WooCommerce products, please see Understanding WooCommerce Product Export Fields.

WooCommerce Product Data

The principal WooCommerce product fields are found in Available Data › Product Data:

  • Sku: A product code used to reference and differentiate products.
  • Price: The product's current price, which is the regular price, unless the sale price is active and lower.
  • Regular Price: The regular, full price of the product.
  • Sale Price: The sale price of the product.
  • Stock Status: One of several preset values. The default WooCommerce stock statuses are instockoutofstock, and onbackorder.
  • Stock: The number of products currently in stock and available for sale.
  • External Product URL: The affiliate link for external products.
  • Total Sales: Number of times the product has been sold.
  • Attributes: This will export the attribute's name, value, whether it's used in variations, is visible, and is a taxonomy. This export element creates five columns per attribute. This data is more easily exported in the Attributes section.
  • Shipping Class: If configured, it exports the name of the product's shipping class.

Variable products have different attributes, such as size or color. Those attributes will be automatically detected and added to the Attributes section at the bottom of Product Data.

Export Variable Products Attributes Section

Advanced Options

You will see an Advanced Options section with the following settings:

  • Separator: Used for CSV files. Defaults to a comma (,).
  • CSV Header Row: Has the option Include header row and column titles in export enabled by default. When disabled, the CSV file would have no header row.
  • Product Variations: these settings decide how to export the product variations, with the following options available (which are self-explanatory):
    • Export product variations and their parent products
      • Product variations use the parent product title
      • Product variations use the default variation product title
    • Only export product variations
      • Product variations use the parent product title
      • Product variations use the default variation product title
    • Only export parent products
Export Variable Products Advanced Options

Once the export is configured, click the blue Continue button at the bottom. You'll now see the Export Settings screen.

Step 3: Configure the Export Settings

Export Variable Products Settings

Near the top of this screen, WP All Export shows a summary of what will be exported. You can also define Scheduling Options here and change other Advanced Options for the export. For example, you can set the batch processing size, control whether the export should be split into multiple output files, and even dictate the behavior for subsequent runs of the same export.

In this case, we'll leave all of these export settings as they are and click Confirm & Run Export to start the export process.

Step 4: Download Your Export File

Once the export finishes, you'll see an export complete message along with different options to download the exported file. You can download the selected file type (i.e., CSV, Excel, XML) or a Bundle compressed zip file that has the export file along with a template to use with WP All Import.

Automatically Export WooCommerce Variable Products on a Schedule

With WP All Export, you can schedule WooCommerce product export using one of these scheduling options:

  • Manual Scheduling: set up manual cron jobs via your control panel (such as cPanel or Plesk) that will run your export on a schedule. Learn more in Schedule WordPress Exports Using Cron Jobs.
  • Automatic Scheduling: this is our proprietary Automatic Scheduling Service, which has a small monthly fee. Its big advantage is that you can control scheduling via WP All Export's interface: Run WordPress Export on a Schedule.

Export WooCommerce Variable Products — Frequently Asked Questions
