Resellers: How do you manage categories from supplier feeds?


Recommended Posts

How are you managing the wide variety of category structures from supplier data feed CSV files to make them conform to your osCommerce category taxonomy?


It is just killing me trying to do the category conversions manually in prepping the CSV files for Easy Populate import.




In my site say I have a product in a category:

Some Category > Other Category > Category > Some Product


And a supplier has a similar product that I want to put in that same category but they list it in:

Trees > PUMPKINS > Other SquiRRILS > BEER > Other product


I have to manually change each category and subcategory for that new product (which is in it's own column) to match my taxonomy.

Not easy when importing 10,000 products at a time.


Is there an easier way?

Thanks Nick!


Seems perfect and even though it's for 2.2 looks like it shouldn't be too hard to incorporate into 2.3.1
