Export custom data feeds for shopping sites like froogle automatically?
I am signed up on many shopping comparison sites (like froogle.com) but each has its own different specifications for the data feed I provide.
At the moment every time few weeks I am using the froogle export and rearranging the columns manually for each site, this is getting ridiculous. Most of the sites I am signed up for just grab the datafile from my site whenever I update it, the trouble is I can only update it manually
Surely there is an easier way to do this?
I am signed up to several sites at the moment, many require like this for example, usually CSV or TXT, tab or comma delimited, the requirements vary per site.
upc product_code product_url product_name product_description image_url category price
Can I set up zen cart to export these feeds and update them automatically whenever I update my site?
Also I have noticed with the froogle export from easypopulate the stock comes as Y for everything, even out of stock products
The reason this is important is many of these shopping sites charge per click so I do not want to include out of stock items in their feeds
Also some are in USD and AUD
Many of the shopping sites have provided me with a script that works in OSCommerce to automatically export the goods, but it does not work in Zen-Cart, is there an easy way to convert these scripts or are they useless? I would rather stick with Zen because the support here is great, but all of the major shopping sites seem to make export script PHP files they give me that are meant for OScommerce, can I use them?
Any help?? This would be greatly appreciated it is one of my priorities at the moment, our stock changes fast so changing every single export file manually is becoming impossible
