Hello dear Cs-Cart community!
We have a question about how to set up automatic stock import for different vendors.

Our goal:
Vendors should have the possibility to update the inventory of their products regularly (up to several times a day) automatically via CVS file or link.

Current problem:
With Cs-Cart there is only the possibility to do one import at a time and not more. Also the new import addon does not offer this possibility. With CS-Cart only small files can be processed by a cron job,  for larger files, several cron jobs must be stored. Further problem: Already a single import for long loading times of the store and slows down the server.

To the solution:
Does anyone have an idea how we can automatically update the stocks of many vendors if they provide a link to it? Is there a technical solution for this or a third party that provides a solution?

Many thanks in advance!
Sören

Hello.

 

Please have a look at our addon Fast & Simple import

 

Your vendors can upload any file (Excel, CSV, XML) by link or FTP with great performance.

Hello.

Hi RetailFactory,

 

thank you for getting back to us.

 

We are currently using the Simtech XML & CSV Import Pro add-on ( https://marketplace....xml-import.html).

 

The add-on works great, but we are looking for a solution that would allow us to update/import large files simultaneously.

 

Let's say we have 500 vendors, that all need to have their inventory of several thousands of products updated multiple times a day. Currently, we can't have more than one import running at the same time as it will massively slow down the server.

 

Would your add-on provide a solution for this problem?

 

 

In addition we have a few more questions regarding your add-on:

 

- Is the add-on limited to a certain number of vendors?

- If a brand is offered by several vendors, does the import system still work?

 

Since we already use the XML & CSV Import Pro add-on, would it even make sense to switch to your add-on?

 

 

Thank you, we're looking forward to hearing back from you.

 

Kind regards,

 

Sören

Yes, our addon is much more faster.

- If a brand is offered by several vendors, does the import system still work?

 

1) Addon has not limits for vendors count.

 

2) Yes, because products will be associated with vendors.

 

We can provide you addon for test if you like.
