Hi,
I am trying to import around 300 products from my present store. After configuring ocs import profile I am able to import orders and customers. I cannot import categories nor products. Whole process hang diplaying “Importing...” message. I run process for hours but nothing changed - no products are imported. Ive tried to import only products or categories but to no success.
Ive copied my present shop to the same server where magento resides but still no go. Anybody have an idea?
{edited} - I found that everytime this scripts works it create another website so after few trials I had 11 websites out of two.

Best regards,
Piotr

Oh Yes, I shouldnt call my shop oscommerce anymore wink
Ive completly modified core files but as for database I ve tried to remain the structure same like stock oscommerce. AnywayAfter few days playing with is I start to create product by hand. Yes, its painfull but I have around 300 products which I had to update anyway so its good opportunity to do so.
As for any advice for You - try use dataflow.
1. Export product from osc using easy populate.
2. Than export some sample product from magento to get csv with proper structure.
3. Open both csv in excel/openoffice.
4. in magento file - first row is for choosing proper shop view so you need to change “default” with store code
5. You cannot import both language at one so procedure had to be repeated for every storeview
6 . remember to put different sku
7. Put product images in root level of the folder where magento store product pictures and pictures will be imported. In csf file puf / in fromt of picture file name.
best , piotr

Hi all,
Doing an import from my osc store.  So far, products and categories went fine.  What seems to be taking an eternity (running over 12 hours now) is customers. 

I have over 8700 and it still says 0% processed after 12+ hours.  Wondering if anyone has any ideas?

See screenshot attached.

Thanks!

Can you check the database and see if any customers are actually being added?
