How to Easily Sync Specific WooCommerce Product Content from Local/Staging to Your Live Store

If you run a WooCommerce store, likely you are using a staging site to do updates, testing etc. But often there are times when you want to be able to push content updates, such as product changes or new products, to your site specifically. You don’t need to push them over your entire site.

WPSiteSync WooCommerce Extension

With the WooCommerce extension for WPSiteSync you can update specific content, and that content only, with ease. You don’t need to worry about overwriting sales information, new customers, reviews and all that other data tied to your store.

Updating Your Product Information

As you will see in the video below, you can update your product information, and only the information you have changed including:

  • Categories
  • Tags
  • Product Images
  • Galleries
  • Pricing
  • Tax and shipping settings
  • and more

Once you have installed it, and synced it to your staging or local install, you will get options to push your changes to your target site— or pull them, if you prefer.

  • Publish a new product on my local install and push it to my live site
