Speed Up Magento Import/Save

So this little trick is so silly I’m ashamed I didn’t come up with it myself.. During an import I was experiencing product saves taking up to 1 second at a time. After some searching I realized it was reindexing each product on save so the easiest way to get around this is by putting indexing on “Manual” instead of on “Update on save”.

This improved save speeds by up to 10x! Ok, reindexing afterwards can take quite a while, but at least you have some control over it and can decide when to run it.
