My main supplier has a public ftp area from which the following stock files can be downloaded. (Files sizes are approx.) book details [url removed, login to view] book notes [url removed, login to view] stock levels [url removed, login to view] list of isbn numbers [url removed, login to view] list of publishers [url removed, login to view] list of categories [url removed, login to view] All the files are text files and can be opened with notepad. These files contain all 200,000 currently available books in the UK. I only need those books which are either in the educational categories or are best-sellers. (Around 40,000 titles) I need a file which contains the following information for uploading to my ecommerce website in csv format and which can, ideally, be automated each day or every 2 days: ISBN Number Title Author Notes Publisher Type of book (Hardback, Softback, Audio, CD etc) Publication status (Will be mostly blank except for "not yet published" titles) Stock status (from the quantity calculate - In stock, low (1-5) or out of stock rather than actual numbers) RRP Our price Price difference in % and £ There are no images involved yet, but a system which could download images from other sites might be worth discussing as well.. The master book file contains almost 200,000 records. I need to be able to filter this to only certain categories for upload. Initial categories will be educational books, with other categories to follow later. I would rather deal with someone based in the UK, and ideally Norfolk as I want to be able to sit down with someone and explain in detail.
