do you know asp to make second solution
this is first solution proposed by some
And the process won't be automatically, basically someone would have to go to [url removed, login to view], to click a button and to download few newly generated CSV files. After that he'll go to the 3dcard system import page and would import these CSVs, after that upload the images.
this is second solution proposed by some
I'm sure if someone knows ASP and is good at parsing files, he'll be able to do it to be done automatically on a daily basis (and it would be cheaper, or at the same price), so better find someone on GAF with strong ASP knowledge and knowledge of parsing files and let him do that work.
3dcart allows you to import your products using the Import/Export feature from a CSV file. To download the sample products import file click here.
This article will show you how to properly use the sample CSV file to upload your products to your 3dcart store.
- First download the sample products csv from the previous link or you can login to your Store Manager and go to PRODUCTS > EXPORT / IMPORT from the left navigation menu, then click on the CSV link above PRODUCTS under the Import section and download it to your computer.
Note: You will need a Spreadsheet editor like Microsoft Excel to open this file in your computer, if you don't have this installed on your computer visit [url removed, login to view] to download a spreadsheet editor.
The PRODUCTS IMPORT allows you to import the following information.
Note: Do not remove or add any columns to this file. If you do not have need for a column please leave it blank or follow the instructions for the field that follow.
ID - This field is required. It is the unique product id (SKU or Part Number) of the product. This can be any combination of letters and numbers you choose. The system will assign a separate database ID that will be used to keep track of each product in the backend of the system, this is called the CATALOGID and will only show in a product export. The CATALOGID is not included at this time since it is not needed for importing new products.
MFGID - This is the unique manufacturer id that may be provided by the manufacturer of the product or you can assign this on your own. This is an optional field.
NAME - This is the name of the product. This is a required field.
MANUFACTURER - This is the name of the Manufacturer this product is associated with.
Note: The list of Manufacturers is located in the Store Manager by going to SETTINGS > GENERAL > MANUFACTURERS. Any new manufacturer entered in the CSV file will be automatically created in the system.
CATEGORIES - This will assign the product to a particular category. The field refers to the Path of the category and it allows to set one product in multiple categories.
To add the product to a Main Category simply put in the Main Category name. Any new category entered in the CSV file will be automatically created in the system.
NOTE: The system is case sensitive so if you have "Sample 1" in the admin and enter "sample 1" in the csv file the system will treat "sample 1" as a new categor
