Is there sample shop data I can import?

Importing WooCommerce Sample Data

If you are starting with an empty shop — no products, orders, reviews — then you can get started creating your own products and setting up your shop exactly as you need.

However, maybe you’d like to see what a store full of sample orders and products looks like. If so, we’ve got some data for you to see what a working shop looks like.

Sample data for your WooCommerce shop is located in a file called either sample-products.csv or sample-products.xml, which is located in your shop installation.
