Daily Update of Price and Qty with EasyPopulate for large store


Recommended Posts



I have successfully used EasyPopulate to fill my store with about 10,000 products I wish to sell from my supplier. The issue at hand is that my supplier updates its prices and availability of all the items on a daily basis, and I am trying to keep my store synchronized with this info. The problem I am having is that I can only get EasyPopulate to update about 500 items per file before I start getting timeouts, which means I have to manually upload about 20 lists every day and its becoming very tedious and time consuming.


Does anyone have any experience with stores with a large number of items that need to be updated daily?


I am trying to get it down to 5 minutes a day or less of manual work to keep my prices and availability up to date.


Any help is much appreciated, thanks!

EasyPopulate has some functions built in to split the file. I have no idea how well it works.


If you have shell access to your server you could write a shell script to split it, I think that's what I would do.
