Everything looks good/import-wise. The status seems to show publish, and the post_status table correctly has ‘publish’, and you can view an individual product page. The list of products is also looks fine in the backend. You just cannot see an item in a product listing, category listing, or tag listing, or via shortcode until such time as you perform an update on the product page. Unfortunately bulk update doesn’t do the trick.
Digging deeper, it does look like the import process doesn’t fire the creation of the product fully/correctly. I should have checked this first. Looking at the post_meta, the products not showing only have the imported meta fields. I had skipped the empty values.
So I’ll try populating the other fields with dummy / empty values and report back later, when I’ve give that a spin, if I may.
Thanks for the help so far …
