Automate Magento Shopping Cart – Product Import Script

Post 53 of 72

A script for automating product feed import into a Magento shop has been developed recently. Following were the requirements

  • Download and process .txt files from another server(merchant) via FTP. Only latest files have to be picked up via FTP. The files will have a date suffix to help the FTP script to identify which ones are latest.
  • The products have to be assigned to the right categories and sub-categories
  • New products have to be added and existing products have to be updated.

As the .txt files from merchant were not clean we script had to take care of the tidying up aspect as well. The script is in PHP and is scheduled to execute via cron.

If you are looking to automate product management of your shopping cart like Magento please contact us. We are happy to help.
