Field Mapping Feature From Discogs To WooCommerce

DisConnect allows you to map your Discogs products fields to your WooCommerce products fields and once you’ve performed the mapping, Disconnect will automatically send the Discogs products to WooCommerce accordingly.

Note: By default, we have set the mappings for you, in case if you want to change anything, you can always do it by following the below steps mentioned,

You will have to follow the below steps in order to set up the Field mapping –

(A): Navigation  – The WooCommerce Field Mapping section can be found under the “Mappings” section of the left panel.

(B): How it works – You will find various data fields of Discogs at the bottom of this section. These are dynamic shortcodes that can be used to map your Discogs data to your WooCommerce fields. You can map multiple Discogs Shortcodes (data fields) to a single field of WooCommerce. These Discogs Shortcodes can be copied with a click & they can be pasted in their respective target WooCommerce fields.

1. WooCommerce Title:

The WooCommerce title has a character limit of 255. By default we’ve added.[Artist] – [Title] ([Format]) ([Media condition])

2. SKU:

The Stock Keeping Unit on WooCommerce. As it’s recommended to keep it unique, we’ve added [Listing ID] by default. You’re also free to use [Location], [Release ID], etc. Please make sure that the shortcode you use has unique values for them and does not include any descriptive shortcodes like [Notes],[Comments],[TrackList], etc in shorter fields.

3. Description

The Description field in WooCommerce can be customized unlike other fields with our editor. Meaning, you can modify the texts by making them bold, italic, underlined, etc. Or customize them with HTML, etc. This is the field where you can include your long descriptive shortcodes like [Notes],[Comments], etc. Also, the video shortcode can be included as part of the description. The video shortcode can be customized more to your preferences by altering the value of X in the shortcode show=X. Where X denotes the number of videos you’d like to show from the respective Discogs listing. The dimensions of the video can also be customized in the shortcode as long as the aspect ratio is maintained.

As mentioned earlier, the Discogs  WooCommerce  Field mapping affects your entire range of products that are going to be synced from Discogs to  WooCommerce. Should you wish to change the mapping for a particular product, you’re free to do so on the product details page of a particular product in the “Products” section on the left panel.

DisConnect also allows you to map your Discogs data to WooCommerce as attributes as well. To learn more about that, check out our guide which explains how to set up attributes mapping for your WooCommerce account in DisConnect.

Once you’re done setting up the field mapping, proceed with your other settings like category mapping & any other customizations you might need before starting the sync from Discogs to  WooCommerce.
