After trying to import 120,000 products as part of our SoccerPro rollout and product variants into WooCommerce, we were having some speed issues. It took hours to import images into WordPress. It was painfully slow to import product variants into WooCommerce. Importing inventory numbers into WordPress and WooCommerce was also taking forever. The import would time out or crash. We tried splitting things up, but that was a pain. So the team at Delta Systems dug deeper. We found that adding some indexes to a table and tweaking a single SQL query boosted our import speeds by 26,000%. Yes, twenty-six thousand. Things that took 13 seconds now only took 0.05 seconds. And when you multiply 13 seconds by 120,000 you get almost 433 hours. Whereas 0.05 * 120,000 = 1.6 hours. Woot.
We were happy to share these findings with WP All Import and they are now available as part of WP All Import Pro v4.5.3 and higher.
