Default Grab products from other sites

I search many hours on google to find addon which can grab products from other sites. The only i found is multiscraper but does not work for the x-cart 5 multi vendor.

I spend also many hours trying to find sites compatible with x-cart about bulk products import without result. Specifically, i wanted to import bulk drop shipped products from banggood and from other site too.

It's very important for me to can add 500-1000 products to my site so a vendor to register and a customer to buy.
To add at least 500-1000 products takes too much time and i want to ask if there is something which i didn't find yet.

The best way is to use a standard import tool. Your vendors can simply create a CSV file with the list of products, its' prices, and desc. You can find all the required columns here: https://kb.x-cart.com/import-export/csv_format_by_x-cart_data_type/csv_import_products.html

Well, you can export the catalogue of the other store in CSV format compatible with XC5, then just import it.

I import csv/xls files from aliexpress, banggood but i see are not compatible with x-cart 5. How i can know if a store (shopify,opencart, magento etc) is compatible with x-cart 5?

If you mean that the exported files are not compatible with X-Cart 5 - it mostly like relates to the column names. I would recommend checking the CSV files you get and modify the column names there to adapt it for XC5 (e.g. sku, name_en, etc.)

Every software has its own way/format to export and import. You can't count on exporting something from banggood and importing it as is to XC. You need to modify the exported csv file to match the format accepted by XC.


Start here - https://kb.x-cart.com/import-export/csv_format_by_x-cart_data_type/csv_import_products.html

Other shopping cards have ready modules to do this job. I paid so much money because you are from the best ecommerce sites and now you come to say me to do this job by myself when i don't have such knowledge. Prove it that you are the best, not only in words.
I tried to change the sku and name but are not only these. I understand i must change many things, maybe the whole form.

Steve provided you with the link to start at. Just check the column names there and insert the needed ones to your CSV file. You can't upload a file just setting several column names and leaving others unchanged. All the column names should be adapted.
