      get this error on some products when I import them. And I’ve checked their ID is not the same as some other product’s ID..

      “Importing post id conflicts with an existing post id”

      And when I select the option to update a product if the same ID exists, then I get another error that says:

      “Post is not a product”

      Please not that the site I’m trying to import the CSV to is a brand new website with no posts and just 2 pages for home and blog. It don’t see where the conflict comes from..

      Hi,

      “post is not a product” error occurs due to a post already exist in the importing site with the same ID.

      Wordpress considers everything as posts. Eg: product is a post, the image is another post Like that.

      So if you upload a product that has an image with product ID 4000, then WordPress assigns 4000 to the image. Conflicts occur if you give consecutive IDs for products.

      For product import, it is always preferable to avoid using consecutive IDs.

      We can’t import without using the old IDs as these same IDs are required by Prinful and can’t be changed. Hence we need everything to be exactly the same as it was on the old site.

      Hi,

      In that case, you may please import the CSV skipping the images column and later update it by importing the CSV again using the update existing products option.
