I used the WordPress Importer plugin and successfully imported all content but woocommerce product attributes are not imported. Tried a few different tests, and few different servers. Same result.

Here is an example of an error received after attempting to import:

Failed to import pa_color Blue
Failed to import pa_color Brown
Failed to import pa_size Large
Failed to import pa_size Medium

Any help is much appreciated!

  • The problem is, that you would need a specific importer that would import all the data that is not in the standard WordPress set. This is very plugin specific. Do you have a map of all the data that is saved by WooCommerce and where it is saved? If so, please update your question with an edit and we can reopen it. Thanks.

WordPress default importer will not work for WooCommerce product attributes. There is a plugin available to import WooCommerce products which handles import for products as well as their attributes. I'll not paste the plugin URL here since it's a third party plugin, but if you google for 'WooCommerce import', you will easily get that plugin.
