When you have different products that share the same downloadable files, you might want to upload them once and then copy the files from one product to another. But how do you copy the downloadable files from one product to two hundred products?
In this article we’ll show you how you can copy downloadable files between products using the WP Sheet Editor plugin.
1- Install the Sheet Editor Plugin
WP Sheet Editor provides a Products Spreadsheet where you can see all the product information and you can edit freely.
You can skip this step if you already have the plugin installed and activated.
2- Setup the WooCommerce Products Spreadsheet
The setup is easy and it only takes 2 minutes. Please follow this tutorial for the quick setup.
3- Open the Sheet Editor Plugin
When you open the plugin, you’ll see a spreadsheet containing all your products with their complete information.
4. Copy downloadable files between products
If you want to copy files from one product to another, you need to locate the “Downloadable files” column.
For this you can use the “Locate cell” tool, which is above the spreadsheet. Just write “downloadable” in “Locate cell” field, and hit “enter”.
Once you do that, the tool will take you to the “Download files” column, where you just need to hit the “Edit files” button.
If you hit the “Edit file” button in a product, you’ll be able to view the current files.
If it’s the case, you’ll see its name and URL. So maybe this is the file you want to copy to another product.
To copy the downloadable files from one product to another, you need to go to the product that doesn’t contain a downloadable file and hit the “Edit file” button.
Once there, you need to do this:
- Select the master product that contains the files
- Hit “Copy”.
- After that, you’ll see the file name and URL copied in Product 2.
In just some simple clicks you’ll have copied the download files from one product to another and can continue doing it with other products as well.
