Display Product Content on Remote Sites?


Recommended Posts

We want to be able to display info about products (in selected categories) on non-shop (different IP) sites. Our current system (which we are dropping) allows us to display promotional information about particular products in particular categories on other sites (e.g., our content sites and our affilates' sites).


For example, I'd like to be able to display a randomly selected product from our "Bestsellers" category on the home page of our content site. Also, it would be great to give affiliates the ability to display info from our product database.


This solution should automatically reflect changes to the product database. That is, the content displayed remotely depends on the current info at the shop site.


For a selected category, we would like to display one sku randomly from the list (based on page refresh?)

Ideally, each product field (e.g., title, price, description, link) can be independently formatted.


Does osCommerce or an osC contribution support such a thing?

I forgot to mention that we are method-neutral as to whether this is done via asp, php, xml/rss, or some other language/utility.


Essential steps?

1 - access the database on the shop site

2 - select/sort the appropriate category/products

3 - load the appropiate table entries into variables

4 - call and display the variables
