Help Auto-Importing Data Feeds


chemlabrat

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have any experience with or know how to automatically import data feeds from distributors or suppliers into your oscommerce inventory using Easy Populate? I have three different distributors that automatically post all of their feeds daily, and I have to go in and download them, manipulate the format on a couple of them, and then re-upload via Easy Populate. Anyone know of a better way to do this to keep my store up-to-date?

Yes, I've done this type of thing several times.

 

It is something that can be automated either on your PC or the site.

 

Retrieve files.

Reformat

Import using EP

 

Depends how you want it done and your level of expertise.

 

ftp can be used to retrieve files.

Excell or access or php can be used to reformat files.

EP can be run using a cron job.
