The e-commerce.

Need Help: Importing/Grabbing


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have an online shop (link) in which I sell server cabinets and such.

I created it using the software package ShopFactory, (link) but after some time i found that the software was limiting what I could do with the site. So I decided to switch to OScommerce. Unfortunately ShopFactory won't let me export my product catalog (which is some hundreds of products large) in any way.


So; my question; is there any way for oscommerce (with the help of a module, maybe?) to 'grab' the product information of of my website and insert it into its database?


Help would be very much appreciated since creating a new database from scratch would take many, many hours.

You need to install the Easy Populate contribution and read the documentation.


Then it will become clear that by exporting a catalog data from your current shop into say a csv file you can then change the column titles and import it using EP into your osc shop.
