Hi

 

I use an affiliate program which offer a xml feed of the products including a link to their checkout page. Is there an add on to osCommerce so I can import the product feed and use their checkout page instead my own?

Did you have any luck finding a solution to this as I am interested in also finding something like this.

 

Thanks!

Any solution you will come up with will be custom designed for you. The XML feeds are not all that standard.

 

And, to use the feed to initially load the shop will create new product_id numbers, and any subsequent run will have to check for the existence of the product so that it does not create a duplicate product, but merely updates the existing product.

 

I use a script that runs every half hour and only updates quantities and prices from the supplier. The initial load is a lot more difficult because the supplier and I do not have identical categories. I do a manual selection then customize the script to load the selected products.

 

I'm thinking you could write your own script if you put your mind to it. And, check with your supplier to see if they have any code for osC..
