Need to synchronize the products in your X-cart store with a warehouse or drop shipper? Tired of manually converting your data file into X-cart’s format so that you can update products? Need to update prices and quantities in your store on a regular basis without human interaction? Product importer pro will allow you to automate the mapping of your product data from your format into your X-cart shopping cart.
By automating the conversion process, you can eliminate the tedious manual process of converting your product data into a format that the X-cart import/export system can process. This new import process can be configured to automatically retrieve your data via FTP or the web then, through a series of customizable mappings and transformations, convert and import or update your products with the new data. Once set up, this system will take the manual labor out of your hands by automatically keeping your products up-to-date.
Product Importer Pro support the following standard data formats including custom formats:
- Comma Separated Values (CSV)
- Tab Delimited File
- String Delimited File
- Regular Expression Delimited File
- Column Delimited File
- Other (custom delimited file)
Supports most 3rd party modules!
The Product Importer Pro is so highly customizable that it supports most 3rd party modules. For example, if you have extra columns in your products table because of modules like CDSEO, you can easily map these new columns and import the data you need without modifying any php code!
Number of Importers
To determine the number of importers to buy, a general rule can be followed. The number of importers equates to the number of saved mappings you want to have. If you have 2 suppliers with different file formats, then you will want the 2 importer option. This will allow you to import new data and save the configuration for each of these suppliers.
If you have more than one vendor with the same product, please contact us before purchasing. A future feature will handle this.
The host must install the follwoing PEAR Libraries with all of the dependencies

You may test ahead of time to see if your server needs these libraries installed by downloading this zip
if you have any troubles with the test file or have any questions on if you're server is compatible. Email us a link to your test_site.php script on your server.
To allow this module to work with virtually any data format it is highly customizable. Configuring of this module does require some technical knowledge of X-cart. We recommend you purchase set up services through us. This provides you upto 4 hours with which we set up your field mappings so that everything can be tested and ready to go for you. If more hours are needed we should be able to tell in the first 1-2 hours. 4 hours is typically the maximum for standard formats with no data manipulation. If you want any of your data manipulated, please contact us and send us a sample file so we can quote how long it will take to write custom code to manipulate your data to your needs. At this low price, we are only able to provide limited support on the field mappings for those who do not purchase configuration services from us.
