General information

The External Importer plugin uses advanced AI technologies to rewrite existing content or generate new, unique content for the title, description, short description, and product reviews during the import process.

Supported models

The plugin supports the following AI generative models:

  • OpenAI: gpt-3.5-turbo

  • OpenAI: gpt-4-turbo-preview

  • OpenAI: gpt-4
