    I have a CSV sheet from an ecommerce site and have run into loads of problems, would be great if you guys can help out if possible:

    - I can't grab the images so is there a way to scrape images from the original site? I'll fire up Scrapebox but last time I tried to get images it failed miserably.

    - Using WP All Import (free version) it picks up lots of cells but not all - is there a better plugin or do I just amend the CSV sheet until it works? Anyone used and recommend WP All Import or is is known for errors (can't find anything bad about it TBH).

    - The pricing comes up as £0000000008.85 instead of £8.85. The CSV cell is only 2 decimal places, so I have no idea why it's doing this.

    - The CSV has a different page for categories and products, when I upload them separately the products get placed on their own pages ie no in their respective categories which is strange as the category cell is clearly there (have tried both spreadsheets altogether on different pages within the same CSV and it didn't work)

    - There has to be an easy way of doing this? I have hired and fired 5 web devs/designers whatever they want to be called and they just fail worse than I do. I know it's possible, in fact it should be fairly simple to do but just can't seem to do it. Running on Woocommerce with Shopera theme but I might change this if this is the problem. I don't really care what it looks like as it's more of a test for future ecommerce sites like this. Once I have the bones of it working I'll rewrite all of the content.

    Thanks in advance
