A lot of WooCommerce sellers uses tools to import products. There are few popualr tools like:
AJAX Search for WooCommerce (Pro) can slow down the importing process because it tries to update the search index after importing each product. It’s not an optimal way if you have a lot of products or import products regularly.
The optimal way to work with import tools
We recommend disable updating the search index on the fly before running the import process and enable it when importing is completed.
How to do it? There are two ways. The choice depends on how you run an importer. The first way is for importer runs via PHP, and the second way is for importer runs manually.
Disable updater programmatically
If you are familiar with PHP and you run the import programmatically, you can do something like this:
add_filter('dgwt/wcas/tnt/disable_updater', '__return_true'); // run importer... add_filter('dgwt/wcas/tnt/disable_updater', '__return_false');
Disable updater manually
Step 1: Install and activate Code Snippets plugin
Step 2: Go to Snippets -> Add new
Step 3: Add following code
add_filter( 'dgwt/wcas/tnt/disable_updater', '__return_true' );
Step 4: Enable this snippet
Step 5: Run your importer tools
Step 6: Disable custom snippet aftre finishing the import process
Step 7: Repeat steps from 4 to 6 before each import
