Bulk Import Businesses or Listings

Added Version 2.1.0

You can bulk import Businesses or Listings by navigating to Businesses > Import




wyzi-bulk-import-listings

The imported file should be CSV formatted, and we recommend 50 Listings at a time, although you can even increase this number to thousands, but this will depend on your server CPU and memory. To get your best number of Listings you can import at a time, you can test 50 at first, and by the end of the import, you will get a report showing you the recommended number of listings you can import at a time given you server capabilities. For example, this is the report you may get:




wyzi-import-report-number-of-lisitngs

You can download here this CSV Example File

tx_wyz_business_category

“tx_wyz_business_category” represents your Business or Listing categories associated to it. You do not need to pre-create Business or Listing categories before import, the import process will automatically create categories while importing.

It should take the value in the following manner:

parent_catgeory_slug~child_category_slug:Child_Category_Name

To include more than one subcategory for a listing, separate them by a comma. Example:

restaurants-food~american:American,real-estate~apartments:Apartments,parks-playgrounds~beaches:Beaches

Make sure to create parents first, to be like this:

parent_catgeory_slug:parent_catgeory_Name

You cannot create parent and child categories in the same line, so for example to create a parent named Par and child called Chi:

par:Par,par~chi:Chi

tx_wyz_business_tag

“tx_wyz_business_tag” represents Listing or Business tags. They will be automatically created upon import. It should take the value in the following manner:

cf__thumbnail_id

This represents the post featured image ( The Business or Listing logo ) ID. You need this in case you already uploaded your images to your Libraries and you have your Images Posts IDs, else you can leave this field empty. If you set this value and then fill fi_thumbnail, the later value will override cf__thumbnail_id.

fi_thumbnail

This is the Logo Image of a Business or Listing. ( Featured image of CPT post for geeks )

If you already uploaded your images to your WordPress Media Library then you can fill this value by images location in your uploads folder, followed by image name for example:

2017/08/points-cat-6.png

Alternatively, you can fill this value with direct URL link to your image, and the import will upload this image to your Media Library and assign it to the Business. Example:

https://wyzi.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/barberlogo-300×110.png

If you are using the URL method, importing may need a lot of time as images are being uploaded and saved which may depend of your internet speed and server speeds, so be patient.

fi_business_gallery_image

This is the set of images owned by a Business Listing, that shows in Photos Tab in Single Listing page. The value should be JSON format with list of Images WordPress IDs if your images were already uploaded to WordPress Media. Example:

[“723″,”722”]

If you already uploaded your files also to media Library, you can import those business photos by specifying Folder Location and image name, separating then by a comma, example:

2017/07/the-strategy-1080533_1280-11.jpg,2017/07/huge-2436216_1280-11.jpg,2017/07/egg-1364869_1280-11.jpg

 Also another way, which is not recommended, if you want to grab your images from another URL, where it will be automatically grabbed and saved into your WordPress Media Library and assigned to the Business photos, you can then put in this field the images URLs separated by a comma, example:

https://wyzi.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/pexels-photo-194094-1024×681.jpeg,https://wyzi.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/girl-dress-bounce-nature-160826-1024×678.jpeg,https://wyzi.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/girl-water-flowers-beauty-160673-1024×626.jpeg

Note: Including a big number of images of big sizes will require huge number set to max_execution_time, so you do not fall out of allowed limit of execution, Also you will need to increase max_input_time, plus you need to be patient.
