    Category Mapping

    Let’s suppose that an attempt to import product from the WooCommerce to Prestashop was successful. And, the product category(of WooCommerce) is not available at the Prestashop end. Now, while importing the product, we need to put it into one or the other category.

    To overcome this obstacle, either we need to create a new category or map the existing WooCommerce category to Prestashop.

    And, if the mapping of WooCommerce categories & Prestashop categories is already complete, then the product will be put to that category.

    4-5

    Click on the ‘Map category’ button to map PrestaShop category with WooCommerce category.

    5-4

    Once mapped, you can view it under ‘Category’ tab.

    Map Product Attributes

    Map various attributes of WooCommerce with attributes of Prestashop. I’ll just explain why this is important.

    Suppose you have a shirt of size “small” at WooCommerce store & you want that shirt to import to PrestaShop store. This should not be a problem though. But, here is the twist.

    While importing the shirt, it will look for size: ‘small’ at your Prestashop store. And, if you have not created size by same word then that shirt will be put with the default attribute. Let’s understand this with an example:

    WooCommerce has size: ‘Small’ whereas PrestaShop has the size: ‘S’. Even though both represent the same size but the notation is different.

    Hence, in this case, the product will be imported with the default attribute. Hence, it becomes even more important to map so that the product imports with the desired attribute.

    7-4

    Click on ‘Map attribute’ button to map PrestaShop attribute with WooCommerce attribute.

    8-3

    Once mapped, you can view it under ‘Attribute mapping’.

    9-2

    Map Shipping Methods and Taxes

    While importing orders or products from WooCommerce, the shipping & tax applied on a product is also imported. Hence, it becomes necessary to map them as well.

    If the shipping and tax are mapped beforehand then they will be automatically applied to the imported product.

    Click on Map shipping button to map PrestaShop shipping method with WooCommerce shipping method.
