WooMultistore is a WooCommerce plugin that allows you to sync product information between multiple WordPress websites. This is useful to sync prices, stock quantity and descriptions for example.
However, it isn’t 100% perfect!
It has trouble syncing images and YouTube video url’s. I have contacted the developers of WooMultistore and they are not planning an update for this.
This is where this little plugin comes in and fixes this annoying lack of features.
What will the Plugin do?
It will sync images selected on the parent site and make local copies in the Child site’s media library. This way the child site references the local version. This helps speed up page load and helps with image SEO. The product image URL on the Child site will be updated to use the local version of the image.
If the parent changes the image then the child will change too.
For YouTube videos, we only need to sync the youtube URL, which it does.
