Default Mass/Automated Product Import from Suppliers/UPC

Hi everyone,

Up until now I've been manually adding products by writing descriptions, adding images, formatting specs tables, which takes minutes or hours to add a single product.

I want to speed up this whole process, to be able to add in dozens, hundreds, or thousands of products in a short time.


And here's what I want:

1. Automatic or manually add in products from suppliers' feed/csv/product files.

2. The import will will include, titles, descriptions, specs, images.

3. It allows me to set my price based on some formula/template applied on supplier's price (for the profit margin).

Optional:
4. Prefer to be able to update automatically or manually.

5. Prefer to be able to add in a product by simply entering UPC/EAN code and price/inventory (like selling on amazon).


Please let me know which product can do this, and how's your experience with it.

Thank you very much!


Alex

Get the feed file form your vendore. Open in excel and match the xcart format (export products from xcart and use that exported file as base). You can do whatever you want with the price field(s) in excel with formulas. Save the file as cvs and import in xcart.
