Bulk Import Locations

Added version 2.1.0

You can bulk import Business Location by navigating to Locations > Import




wyzi-locations-import-bulk

The imported file should be CSV formatted, and we recommend 50 Locations 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 Locations 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
