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.

Frequently Asked Questions on How to Import WordPress Categories and Tags

How do I import categories into WordPress?

  1. Go to All Import > New Import and upload an import file.
  2. Select Taxonomies as the import post type.
  3. Choose Categories as the subtype.
  4. Map the  incoming data elements to their category fields.
  5. Complete the import and verify the imported data.

How do I import tags into WordPress?

  1. Go to All Import > New Import and upload an import file.
  2. Choose Taxonomies as the import post type.
  3. Select Tags as the subtype.
  4. Map the  incoming data elements to their tag fields.
  5. Run the import and verify the imported data.

How do I import categories into WooCommerce?

You can import categories into WooCommerce the same way you do any other taxonomy. Just select Taxonomies as the import type, then choose the WooCommerce category that you are targeting as the subtype. That's the beauty of WP All Import —everything is handled the same way!

What is the difference between categories and tags?

They're both used to classify posts, hence the term "taxonomies." The difference is that categories are generally used to group posts, while tags are used to describe them. In either case, both help you organize your posts.

How does my WordPress category and tag data need to be structured?

It doesn't matter. Our Drag & Drop interface allows you to map any incoming data elements to any category or tag fields, so there's no need to organize your data beforehand. You can even modify your data as part of the import process.

Do I have to use a separate import for my WordPress categories and tags? How do I link my posts to my taxonomies?

It's up to you. When importing posts, our plugin can automatically match to existing terms and create new ones if necessary. To import term meta and images, you'll need a dedicated import.

What if my import CSV file doesn't match the WordPress categories and tags on my site?

Let's assume that your import data has products tagged 'Kids', but you want them to be tagged 'Children' to match your site. Just create a mapping rule, and WP All Import will automatically process your data during the import.

Can I import categories and tags to pages?

If you have used a plugin to add categories and tags to WordPress pages, then yes, you can import those categories and tags. Our importer automatically recognizes the custom post types and fields added by most WordPress themes and plugins, allowing you to treat them just like standard types/fields.
