  • Question about uploading multiple products...

    I have been spending months and months trying to upload thousands of products to my site. It is just so time consuming. Does anyone know if there are any type of automated programs or database feed type programs or open source programs that would allow me to pull in products from all over the internet and from different manufacturers automatically into my site? Basically, I am looking for a way to automate collecting product data and uploading it to my store.

    Many of my competitors seems to have thousands and thousands of the same products on their website with even the same pricing and I am just wondering if I am missing something here. There is no way they can all get all those products on their sites and all descriptions and pricing be the same as the next.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I would suggest learning a scripting language that would allow you to take in the data files from your suppliers and output formatted csv files that can be uploaded to 3dcart. You might have a different script per supplier, but they'd probably be reusable for updates and would cut down the data entry. For a beginning programmer, I'd suggest python.
