Thank you for your interest.

Import speed depends on some factors:
- type of connection (direct or bridge)
- upload images
- re-index option (checked at the last step of import wizard)
- cache import option (checked at the last step of import wizard)
- accelerate import by increasing memory usage option (checked at the last step of import wizard)

Please check the following article for details:

Is ther e away to turn off the backup and restore scripts on the import procedure? If Store Manager didn't perform these actions the import procedure would be 50% faster.

Hello Jeremy,

Thank you for your question.

The backups you're talking about may be related to caching option. It allows you to make a local copy of your data and run import locally. Can you please disable the caching option and check if it takes less time for import.
