Your store may look empty, right after installing WooCommerce — no products, orders, reviews. This is intentional so you can get started creating your own products and setting up WooCommerce exactly as you need.
But 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!
Sample data for WooCommerce is located in a file called either
sample-products.xml, which are located in the WooCommerce plugin folder in
woocommerce/sample-data/. You can get it in two ways:
- Re-download WooCommerce. Open the .zip and find the files in the folder.
- Get the file from your site via SFTP, etc.
Import Demo Products with the Setup Wizard
When first setting up WooCommerce, the Setup Wizard takes you through all the necessary steps to set up your store and get it ready to start selling. One of those steps, Personalize your store, includes the option to import some demo products.
