None of the metadata will be transferred (if there is any it could be
things like prices, weights, etc). If there are any taxonomy terms
associated with the products (keywords, colours, product categories, etc),
those won't be transferred either.

You originally mentioned users, selecting which products they wanted, now
they get everything?
