New plugins for bulk product uploads and product questions, plus a new theme

Posted in Extensions, Themes and tagged , , , , , , , , on by .

Two more plugins are being added to the Jigoshop Extension list, and will allow you to bulk upload a limitless amount of products by importing a spreadsheet, and answer product specific enquiries quickly and easily.That means there are now a whopping 54 extensions available, covering a huge range of payment gateways, shipping options and making running an eCommerce store quicker and easier than ever!

 

The Product Importer Deluxe

The much-anticipated ability to import products into Jigoshop from a .CSV spreadsheet file is now here, and it will make setting up a new store or updating an existing product list quicker and easier. After activating the plugin, you’ll be able to upload data from an .CSV file, including spreadsheets created in Excel or equivalent programmes (Open Office or Libre Office for open source examples).

You’ll also be able to upload images in bulk, and then assign them to specific products either manually or automatically, and there’s no upper limit to the number of products Jigoshop, or the Products Importer Deluxe, can handle, meaning that you can create any size of eCommerce shop without having to create each product and upload every image individually.

And if you’re got a shop already running, you can use the importer to add new product ranges or update everything in one go. It’s a great timesaver and just $49.

 

The Product Enquiry Form

The most important questions for any shop owner are those coming from people ready to buy your products. And by putting a product enquiry form on specific product pages, you can now make sure those emails are filtered and responded to quickly, rather than ending up mixed with more general questions and spam emails.

By activating the Product Enquiry Form plugin, you can allow customers to ask questions and supply their name and address for a reply. A handy reCaptcha field filters out the spam you might get by listing an email address publicly, and you won’t have to check through hundreds of emails to find the ones which could be the difference between making and losting a sale.

The Product Enquiry Form plugin is just $19, which is good value when it can make such a difference to your sales.

 

Prometheus – Responsive Jigoshop theme

Finally for today there’s a gorgeous new Jigoshop theme now available from Alex Gurghis, who previously created the Aventador theme. Named after the Greek God who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mankind, Prometheus could definitely light up your WordPress eCommerce store store with 24 template pages, unlimited colours, and it’s all ready and waiting to add a BBPress forum as well.

Definitely well worth checking out, and we hope to see Alex creating even more Jigoshop themes in the future!

    Great job Jigoshop

  • rswong

    Would be good if we can see the demo of the product enquiry form

      Hi,
      We’re working on adding more images and video demos to our plugin repository – it’ll take a little time to work our way through the list, but we’ll get them all done eventually!

    Great work, congratulations to all participants! :-)

    I wish the Product Importer Deluxe would be able to handle attributes and variations as well. Variations are the most time consuming part when setting up a product.

    Hope you can implement this in the next version.

    Great work. Cheers

      Hi,
      Good suggestion and we’ll take a look at the best method for implementation.

    I purchased the product importer plugin. But I do not know how it works. I downloaded the zip file of download.zip to my desk top I do not know what to do next.

    • Dan Thornton

      Hi wzchen,
      The instructions to use the Product Importer plugin are contained in the Zip file – if you open it up, you should see the Read Me file, but we’ll also send you an email to make sure it’s clear and all working.

    Hey, why is the Product Importer Deluxe removed from the extension list?? also if you click it above it goes to a 404 error.

    Im looking at going forward with Jigoshop but need the ability to mass import products.

    This looked like the answer but seems to have been pulled?

    • Jigoshop

      Hi Michael, the developer has been working on some major updates and it should be back on the site in the next few days.

      Sandra, the Jigoshop team

      • Rich

        It has been a week since the last reply to the 404 for the product importer and I was wondering when the add-on will be ready…I have a clients website with over 100 products to add and this add-on will seriously help

        can you let us know if it’s nearly ready yet!

        regards
        Rich

        • Dan Thornton

          Hi Rich,
          Many apologies – it’s being worked on for release as soon as possible, and should be available imminently. We’re just checking an exact date and time for you

  • Gia

    Any word on the product importer deluxe? I’ve been waiting for something that works! Would also like it if you could drop the price on it. It’s higher than most of your other extensions and that doesn’t make sense.

  • chris

    Any update on when the bulk uploader will be available again. Essential for a project I am working on!

    • Dan Thornton

      Hi Chris,

      Apologies for the delay – it’s coming very soon and we’re just checking an exact date and time for you

      • chris

        OK, thanks for letting me know!

  • susie22312

    Hi, I just purchased the importer and it says (at the link below) that it handles attributes and the sample csv files show places for the attributes but I cannot get them to come through. Is there something that explains how to get it to work?
