Do you have a Woocommerce store? Lucky you! It’s a huge time-saver being able to export, update, and then import your products on a spreadsheet. Sadly, ecommerce store owners have been running into a bit of a problem. No matter how you try to import your products, you see “Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons”. This error appears when trying to upload a product spreadsheet. You can’t import any products at all! Yikes! Even though the spreadsheet is the right kind of file.
There is a two click fix for “Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons”
If you see that error when you try to import your products too, then I have good news for you. The fix is really simple!
