Thank you Matt. You have been extremely helpful. Yes, it was the premium
importer. I also found some sample csv samples which is what I was looking
for. I was hoping to export the one product I created as many of the
variations on that model would be repeated on many others. I hope it works
Ooops. That last post was meant for another forum.

First of all, you don't know how much get paid or my expenses, or even how
much time I have put in off the clock. For me it is not "a little money"
And when I purchase ANY product I expect it to be fully functional. WE will
just have to agree to disagree. Fair enough?
It does support attributes up to a point. Out of like 8 attributes it only imported 4. Perhaps I didn’t set up the CSV file right. IDK I will have to play with it more. At least some of my stress has been lifted after a successful, albeit incompletely import. Would help a lot if the export function worked. That has been the bain of my existence for the past few days.
Correct. However, I have both the premium product importer and Jigoshop store exporter and get the same result whenI try to export anything. If it is working for you I wonder if it may possibly be a plugin conflict. I know about the Yoast wp seo plugin and have deleted it. I will disable most of my other plugins and find out if any of them are the cause of my issue. I know some other people are experiencing the same problem.
I love the way Jigoshop displays product and how scalable it is. I really hope I can get it to work in the way I need it to.
I have disabled EVERY plugin except Jigoshop and the Jigoshop
plugins and still get the same result. Taken to a non-existent page
in both the "Store Export" plugin and the "Premium Product Import"
Plugin when I click on the export option. I have updated today -
June 18. Still does not work in 3 browsers. I think I have
eliminated many of the possible conflicts. I am at a loss at this
point. The product import isn't perfect but ti works to a degree. I
still have to go into individual product and double check the
attributes. Some import and others don't.
I updated today with the same result on 2 separate computers
using 3 different browser. I am still directed to a nonexistent
page. The import function eliminates several attributes. I've been
doing this over and over with the same result post plugin 6/18/2012
update. Isn’t that the definition of insanity? I also
disabled EVERY non Jigoshop plugin. Nothing has changed. I found a
sample CSV file on the Vissar Labs site and successfully added 4
products but no product attribute variations so I still had to go
into every single attribute and product to make adjustments. Very
tedious. 5 out of 500 plus products to go!?!?!?!?!?!? Very
daunting. I had high hopes the update would work because I like the
way Jigoshop displays product but...
I can't justify the time to my employer. I don’t know
Sorry, You Re right. No need to curse. It's just so frustrating sometimes
because Jigoshop is the 5th ecommerce I have tried and find myself working
around it because I love the way it displays products. The simplest product
I have has 8 attributes and they always upload in reverse order. It would
have been so much easier if I could have exported a product to use as a
template. Know what I mean? I will have hundreds of products with more than
8 attributes so the task at hand seems daunting. It also doesn't play well
with my custom theme so I am redesigning using 2011. More work than I
anticipated at the onset.

The import export feature was one of the primary reasons I chose Jigoshop. Without it Jigoshop is less than useless for me and I will have to seek ecomerce plugin #6. The main reason I chose Jigoshopt over Cartt66 as my next ecommerce plugin is that Cart66 has no intentions of adding an import/export plugin now or EVER. Why won't Michael Visser update his plugin? I'm not so far into the project that I won't abandon Jigoshop but at this point I would really like to continue using it. I hate Woocomerce and it would be very disheartening to go to my boss on Monday and explain why this process is taking so long. He's not patient and when he want's something done he has no patience for excuses and if I cannot accomplish the job he needs he will just find someone else.
The import worked okay. The only issues I have experienced is when making revisions and merging with existing products. Also the product attributes are in reverse order so I would suggest making your initial csv upload with the attributes in the reverse order. When you merge products the csv attributes should be in the correct order. When merging products I have also had to go into every individual product and tick the box in order for it to be visible. The export does not work at all. Not products, orders, store, etc.
However, I like Jigoshop's product display and they don't nickel and dime you on essential plugins to make it functional like Woocommerce does. Michael Visser (visser labs) is the only person making the import/export plugins for Jigoshop, Woocomerce and WP-Ecommerce. Pick you poison. I'm sticking with Jigoshop. I like the way the products display and the other 2 ecommerce will have the same issues I have mentioned. I would suggest cutting your initial import file into smaller quantities to avoid issues. I'm doing mine 20 at a time so I can double check everything is correct. On a 20 item import 3 items did not have the correct price. It showed up as $2 instead of $2400. This is ecommerce pluggin #5 and i've decided to stick with it. Paid or free, they all seem to have issues. The ones that make you become a member in order to view the forums are the one's I would run from (Woocommerce) because that's where you get the heads up on the issues you may or may not encounter. Tells me they have A LOT to hide!
Premium product import by Visser Labs. The initial import works well and there are templates on the Visser Labs site to help you set up your CSV files. However, the export option does not function at all. Visser labs is the only one making a pluggin for the other 2 major free WP ecommerce plugins (Woocommerce and WP Ecommerce).
Thank you so much! I hope you can get everything sorted out soon. Jobs are on the line. I realize that if it were easy many people would be doing it, Your attention to the matter is GREATLY appreciated,
@ Visser Labs. The link you had posted takes me to Premium
Product Import 2.1. Somehow I updated to V. 2.5. I ran into a
problem today when uploading new products because they they
partially share a common SKU #. Let me give you an example. I have
Air Conditioning units that include the electric heater in the
price. In order to properly process the order the sky has the AC
unit model # and the heater model # in included in the sku. They
are separated by an underscore. Today I tried to add all the models
of heaters and 70% of them were rejected because of a duplicate
sku. This is going to be a huge issue because many air conditioners
will be sold as combined systems and some will be sold as
individual parts (ie. Condensing units, air handlers, heaters,
etc.). I need to have the correct sku that is inclusive or the
individual part sku #'s in order to process the order correctly.
Any ideas on how to best accomplish this?

have discovered another one for you. I have some products with partially duplicate sku #'s. Air conditioners with heat strip included in price (Ex. Sku abcd_efgh).. Today I was trying to upload parts and accessories and the sku of the separate heater part (also used on other packaged AC systems) was "efgh." It was not uploaded due to duplicate sku#.
With air conditioning systems and parts being sold individually and as complete systems with separate and all inclusive pricing this is going to be a nightmare if the imported product is rejected for having 4-9 similar characters in a row. I'm dealing with mix and match heaters, condensing units, air handlers and heaters as well as packaged units which will have with very similar or exact matching skus with different price structures depending upon how it is purchased. I tried changing the sku by adding "Electric Heater" attached to the sku# but it was a no go. "efgh-electric heater" was also rejected as a dupe.
Hi JOY, the SKU detection is case sensitive and checks against
the complete SKU e.g. abcd_efgh not abcd or efgh so I'm
unsure how you're getting partial SKU duplicate errors. I'll
reproduce this on my side to see if I can mirror the issue, a
sample CSV upload would greatly assist.
I only found one instance so far. I doubled checked the original csv fie and it wasn't present on the csv.
Also, The store exporter puts tags in the category column and does not export all of them. Categories weren't being exported. Many columns were also not exported such as visibility, seo title and description, image path etc.
