Simple import tutorial

Woo import is not fast, so this steps just for faster working with photos
1. Prepare images. Unpack and upload archive of tyre photos on your site. Your photos should be accessed by url. Since files in archive use [vendor]/[tyre model]/photo... naming, you (and woo importer) should have access to http|https://your.site/...path.../[vendor]/[tyre model]/photo URL.

2. Prepare csv. Edit Woo import CSV in any tool (excel, text editor) and replace our CDN URL to URL path to folder with uploaded images  http|https://your.site/...path.../
So, in your CSV should be valid and accessible URLs.

3. Open WP Admin, Products > All Products, Import (at right of page title). Import CSV file. All settings by default.

Or, for simplified import with our CDN
Just import the file via WP Admin > Products > All Products > Import (at right of page title)

Import notes

- you can import tyres without images, just pass 1&2 steps. It needs to assign photos to products.

- after set CSV you should see fields, that will assigned after import: product name, metas etc

- we prepare file for standard Woo import, not importer plugins

- WP\Woo standard import is very slow, so your server should be set up for execution of slow scripts.  Maybe it will need to separate CSV file to several parts.
