Syncee has two solutions for product updating and uploading, these are the Marketplace and the DataFeed Manager.
If you wish to add products to your store from external suppliers, you will need to use the DataFeed Manager feature.
Using this feature, we work with the feed files of the suppliers what they provide to you to create a task for managing the product uploads and updates.
The feed file has to be always up-to-date.
The product uploading and updating process could be fully automated with this feature, however, please, keep in mind, that automatic order management is not included. Once you receive an order, you will need to go to the supplier's website to place it there manually.
The below file formats and sources can be used:
Supported file formats: CSV, XML, XLS(X), JSON
Supported file sources: URL, (S)FTP, Google Docs URL, Google Drive URL, OneDrive URL, Dropbox URL, file upload. If you have an API or SOAP connection, contact our support staff.
What product data should the feed files contain?
The unique ID of the product (which should be the same for each variant)
SKU, Variant SKU
The unique ID of the products/variants
The name of the product
Cost per item and Sales price
Barcode or Handle
Public Image URL
Images via cloud-share sources like Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. are NOT accepted
Option name and Option value in case the products have variations
Please note that every row means one product or one variant in the spreadsheet, depending on the structure of the products (if they are simple or products with variants) and every column stands for only one piece of information
