Hi i need some help. wondered if someone can help me i am designing a site and i needd the csv file to be uploaded and then automatically import the Products to the shop? is this possible please?

I really need this as it be so easy to update stock without going through it all again and again so for example when i uploaded the new stock it only imports the data which i have changed and leaves the other data alone?

Regards,
Aaron

Hi Yes i do know that but to update stock every day it is a very long process etc if you have big CSV file, so there must be a faster way like When i Upload the CSV file FTP into the correct directory it then updates the stock which needs to updated which is scheduled to update?

for example if i have a CSV file which has 65,000 products in it then what i would like to happen is i upload that CSV via FTP say at 5:30pm everyday and then it imports it into the shop automatically so i leave it to run its process over night? i swear this is possible.

Regards,
Aaron

patrickvbw,
I wrote a script and did some modifications to Prestashop for Aaron to do "real-time" updates. Do you have an external source for your update files?


I'm also interested of how to do this? Can this method be used when you get automatically product data in csv format via ftp (or something similar) and periodically check that file with cron and do necessery updates?

I know that simpliest way is to digg import class and create your own script but I'm not familliar with it. So any hints to create this script would be awesome!

The mods I made for Aaron and one other user downloaded the files from ftp on-demand and updated the particular product(s). If you want to continue this off-line, you can send me a PM.

Hey
Im not sure if you have sorted your issue but I had a company called creotec create a script for me which took the csv file my supplier offered and then updated my site every 4 hours
Also you can go to the link provided by the company to update manually! If you need to get it made get in touch with them
Cheers
