I use a Drop Ship warehouse and get daily downloads of what they have in stock. This down load is in Tab seperated Text format (supposedly openable in MicroSoft Excell spread sheet) How do I get that information into the products catologue of nop?
Any help would be greatly appreciated since manualy imputting 50,000 + items manualy is not economicly feeesable.
You would need to probably write a program to do this. Or a sql script. I guess it also needs to update daily etc with changes updates etc? In version 1.4 of nop there is an excel import function but you would still need to alter you dropshippers excel spreedsheet so its in the correct format this would be too time consuming if you needed to it frequently.
My site is hosted at Yellow Domains and nop was offered as a value added software
I like it but to date they have not offered an Update to 1.40
I could always uninstall and re enstall at 1.40 level but that causes me to loose what I already have in the store NOW. any suggestionsz???
If everything is working fine as it is I would leave it. Your best bet is to build a solution that imports your data daily using a SQL script or a custom built solution.
OK that is what I thought
Will let you know what happens
HM please check your PM box
If your drop shipper provide api for data exchange (most drop shippers do), you can create an add on project to collect data from your drop shipper and update to nopCommerce database. It is similar to the concept that we transfer new orders from nopCommerce to Quickbooks.
Thanks to all I am in the process of upgrading too 1.4
