WP Harvest WooCommerce WordPress tutorial default

This is a simple guide on how to add test products and orders dynamically to your WooCommerce shop. This functionality can be useful to test the limits of your website setup and of your server by allowing you to add 1000s of products and orders automatically.

Please note that although you can set whatever number of products and orders you wish, this code has not been optimised to bypass the PHP time limit. This means that the number of products/orders you can create in one go (before refreshing and running it again) is dependent on your server settings. Try starting with smaller numbers.

This snippet goes into the functions.php file of your child theme.
