Every business that uses WooCommerce Bookings has a vastly different setup for their bookable products. This guide will show you how to export and import any bookable product as well as the global availability rules for stores.

We’ve often had to import our customers’ bookable products into our development server for testing with our Availability Search for WooCommerce Bookings Plugin.

The Bookings Helper will allow you to export and import Bookable Products and Global Availability Rules for all products.

Exporting a bookable product requires you to know the ID of the product.

Scroll down in this post to learn how to find the product ID.

If you already know the ID of the product you wish to export just insert it into the box and hit export.

The export will generate a zip file containing the product and save it to your computer.
