Before you import logo using ListingPro bulk import addon, please modify the following two files:

File Name: listingpro-add-on.php
File Path: /wp-content/plugins/listingpro-Bulk-import-addon/

Go to line 75, add this:

$listingpro_addon->add_field( ‘business_logo’, ‘business_logo’, ‘text’, null, ‘business_logo’ );

Go to line 121 add this:

‘business_logo’,

To test make sure the following fields are now available in WP Bulk Import.
