Shopp Bulk Product Importer

This Shopp Bulk Product Importer plugin started out as ‘Shopp Importer’ by Catskin Studio. We used a 0.9 version as a template, but had to rewrite just about everything to make it work with Shopp 1.3.x or higher.

We have created a full featured Shopp Product Bulk Importer. An importer that will not only work properly on new installations but also on webshops that already have products.

Apart from the four mandatory fields (name, price, category, product identifier), we have managed to also import the following properties*

  • Add-ons
  • Comments
  • Description
  • Details
  • Donation minimum amount required
  • Donation variable amount allowed
  • Download
  • Exclude taxes
  • Extra fee
  • Featured
  • Height
  • Image
  • Inventory
  • Length
  • Not Taxed
  • Pingbacks
  • Processing min. time
  • Processing max. time
  • Publish
  • Sale
  • Sale price
  • Separate Packaging
  • SKU
  • Slug (lookup only)
  • Subscription Trial
  • Subscription Trial interval
  • Subscription Trial period
  • Subscription Trial price
  • Subscription Billing Cycles
  • Subscription Billing interval
  • Subscription Billing period
  • Stock Quantity
  • Summary
  • Tag(s)
  • Type
  • Variation(s)
  • Weight
  • Width

*all properties are related to the Product Editor screen of Shopp. For example, we are not importing comments, but the setting for comments (disable/enable).

The plugin identifies your products by productname. In case your productnames are not unique, your SKU field should hold an unique identifier to make the plugin work properly.

Current version: 0.4.2

 

Shopp Bulk Price Editor – plugin

Adjusting prices for multiple products can take up some time in Shopp.

But now there is an even better way to take care of bulk price editing, our new Shopp Bulk Price Editor plugin (Shopp BPE).

You can test the Shopp Bulk Price Editor in our demoshop.

The Shopp Bulk Price Editor can be found in the WordPress menubar in the Shopp Extra menu option.

There are different ways to edit the price

  • enter the (sale)price of a product or variation or add-on manually
  • increase or decrease selected (sale)prices by percentage
  • increase or decrease selected (sale)prices by amount
  • set (sale)price of selected products to a certain amount

Changes will only be permanent after clicking ‘Save Prices’.

Try for yourself and let us know what you think.

Current version: 0.4




Without the plugin, there are some settings on the Product Editor page you can change to make your life easier:

  • at the top of the page near the ‘Update/Save Product’-button you can specify where you want to go after saving/updating. In some cases it will speed up the proces when you set it to “Edit Next”.
  • another thing you can do is drag the ‘Pricing’-section to the top of the page so you don’t have to scroll down on each newly loaded page.

Shopp – images to variations

We have created a plugin that will change the image on the product page of your webshop, following the different variations your customer selects. After setting up the images with matching selections, if the initial image shows a red t-shirt and your customer selects Color-green, instantly the image will change to a green t-shirt.

We have created a demoshop so you can play with this plugin yourself. Variations used are limited to 4 different variations. There is no limit to the options each variation can have.

Visit the product page for more information.

Current version: 0.6.1

Shopp Default Breadcrumb Extender – Plugin

Try out our new Shopp Default Breadcrumb Extender – plugin.

In short, the plugin will use the default shopp(‘product’,’breadcrumb’) tag. All you have to do is install and activate the plugin and add the tag to your Shopp template file(s), if it is not present yet.

The Shopp Default Breadcrumb Extender plugin will display a linked array of (sub)categories from main catalog to the actual category the product belongs to.

Features:

- uses Shopp breadcrumbs on category pages
- uses newly generated breadcrumbs on product pages, if necessary
- will check if the product belongs to the category currently displayed

Read the readme.txt file for more instructions.
Check it out for free, donate if you like it 🙂

Download it from the WordPress.org website, or through your WordPress Admin Panel.

Shopp Facebook Like Button – Plugin

Try out our new Shopp Facebook Like Button – plugin.

In short, the plugin will add the shopp(‘product’,’facebook’) tag to your Shopp environment. All you have to do is add the tag to your Shopp product.php template file and it will display the Facebook Like button and counter.

There are currently three versions of  the Shopp Facebook Like Button plugin. They are all available for free at WordPress.org. Make sure you download the plugin version that matches your Shopp version.

We’ve added a settings page in the Shopp Extra Menu (Shopp sflb). This will make it easy for everyone to make changes to the generated buttons. The downside is, the settings will apply to your entire Shopp webshop. We’d love to hear whether or not you like this approach.

Features:

- easy access to settings by use of the settings page
- include/exclude people's profile picture
- button text adjusts to your WordPress language setting
- set the size of the thumbnails
- Open Graph Tags can be used too

Where to put the tag in product.php?
The choice is yours, but a good spot would be just above the else-statement at the end of the file. Like this,

 
<?php shopp('product','facebook'); ?>
<?php else: ?>
<h3>Product Not Found</h3>
<p>Sorry! The product you requested is not found in our catalog!</p>
<?php endif; ?>

Shopp Product Page Browser – Plugin

Try out our new Shopp Product Page Browser – plugin.

In short, the plugin will add the shopp(‘product’,’browser’) tag to your Shopp environment. All you have to do is add the tag to your Shopp product.php template file and it will display a link to the previous/next product.

This can be done by use of default Shopp tags too, but we were looking for easy access for non-programmers.

We’ve added a settings page in the Shopp Extra Menu (Shopp sppb). This will make it easy for everyone to make changes to the generated links. The downside is, the settings will apply to your entire Shopp webshop. We’d love to hear whether or not you like this approach.

Features:

- set the phrases used for 'Previous' and 'Next'
- set to use product thumbnails instead of 'Previous'/'Next'
- set the size of the thumbnails
- use preset size for thumbnails (1.3 version only)
- exclude categories 
  ('Previous'/'Next'-buttons will not appear on those Shopp product pages)
- exclude products 
  ('Previous'/'Next'-buttons will not appear on those Shopp product pages)
- set maximum number of products in category

Where to put the tag in product.php?
The choice is yours, but a good spot would be just above the else-statement at the end of the file.

Read the readme.txt file for more instructions. The code to add to your Shopp product.php template file is different for version 1.0.2, 1.2.5, and 1.3.x or higher of our plugin.

Remember, your products need to be in categories.
