updating oscommerce with xml/rss feed

Hi

 

I need to automate the process of updating our

product catalogue via an RSS feed from one or more of our suppliers - is there anyone that can help?

Basically it would involve converting one set of data from the feed into a layout compatible

with our OS-Commerce database, and then updating the database, this will need to be done

automatically daily.

 

thanks,

 

richard

The contribution just takes the products from the dbase and generates the xml file. You need the opposite also so you could reverse the process to upload/update products. To automate it you could take advantage of the spiders visiting your store and let them do the update by running your script.

ny hosts are installing iconv function on the server.

 

im starting to get somewhere, if you look at:

 

http://www.itsoftwaresolutions.co.uk/catalog/rss.php

 

its loading product information from my oscommerce database into the browser, what I need though is the opposite to be able to change details in the database by uploading my xml file which looks like this:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>

- <ROOT>

- <PRODUCT>

<RTCODE>ACC1200</RTCODE>

<MFPARTNO />

<DESCRIPTION>Remote Bob 24000-00-20</DESCRIPTION>

<PRICE>12.81</PRICE>

<PRICE BREAK="">12.81</PRICE>

<PRICE BREAK="">12.81</PRICE>

<PRICE BREAK="">12.81</PRICE>

<PRICE BREAK="">12.81</PRICE>

<CATEGORY>Accessories----ATI--</CATEGORY>

<STOCK>0</STOCK>

<WEIGHT>0.01</WEIGHT>

 

any help?
