The e-commerce.

Mass Simultaneous Product Upload/Change


Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm interested in adding large amount of products to my store in one huge fell swoop. Is this possible? I used to be in charge of data entry for a Yahoo store, and you could just upload either a csv or text file in order to upload huge quantities of product all at once. Basically upload a large data sheet that the yahoo store could read as seperate items. Is there a way to do this in OScommerce? Also, inside that question, is it possible then, to change aspects of multiple products at the same time? Could I theoretically change the text description of large groups of prodcuts at the same time?


Thanks any help would be amazing. Even if it's just saying it's impossible.

Easy Populate is the magic search word you are looking for. (watch out for the different versions customized to work with different contributions)


It is the most commonly used import tool that resembles what you are used to as it allows import and export of product data into a separated tag format, being CSV or tab delimited.

I personally always use tab as a delimeter as you won't get that in any descriptions or HTML code.


osC manager I have installed but haven't used it much. I tend to use different computers, osC manager might be a good fit if you tend to use the same computer.


There are some other ones that also ease multiple updates like quick updates, 'multiple product' something, admin specials by category (mine) and possible some more I'm not even aware of.




I do not use the responsive bootstrap version since i coded my responsive version earlier, but i have bought every 28d of code package to support burts effort and keep this forum alive (albeit more like on life support).

So if you are still here ? What are you waiting for ?!


Find the most frequent unique errors to fix:

grep "PHP" php_error_log.txt | sed "s/^.* PHP/PHP/g" |grep "line" |sort | uniq -c | sort -r > counterrors.txt
