So, I'm working on setting up a client with a new store through exchange and am working on moving them from their previous ecommerce platform (Volusion) using a .csv file through WP All Import. I've generally had success at this point, but had a couple of questions I'm wondering if you might have answers for. The first and probably strangest is when importing the price. For instance if the I'm importing is $14.98, after the import the price is actually set at $0.15 in Exchange. Do you have any experience with WP All Import or with how exchange does it's prices in the database which would help that? I am sort of assuming that it isn't reading the decimal or something. It's pretty strange. The second issue is with the image. I can import the images as Featured images with no problem, but when I also try to import the images into the Exchange custom fields, it doesn't seem to map and I get a PHP error in the exchange images area. And unfortunately, the featured image isn't being read as the Exchange image. I am attaching a screenshot of the setup I'm using in WP All Import (minus the images as I wanted to get the images to get downloaded into the media library through the featured image). Any help would be great.

Well, I got the price to work, I had to use a custom function that multiplied the imported price by 100 which go to the right price. Still not sure how to get the images to map correctly. They import as "featured images" and download into the media library, but can't seem to figure out how to then make the connection with the Exchange Images. When I manually add an image through editing the imported product and then go back to the WP All Import settings, the "existing values" look like this:


Any idea how that xPath is created within exchange in order to maybe figure out how to make the import work? Otherwise I guess I'll need to connect the images manually. Any help is appreciated, but if this is beyond the forum protocol, just let me know.
