Need help with a script that takes a data file and populates the products on a website.
See sample scripts attached.
1. It seems the script sets all the [url removed, login to view] products to 100 in stock. Can it use the actual stock?
2. Some products are out of stock, yet show as in stock. Customers purchasing items out of stock that are reported in stock usually result in losing customers and alot of headaches.
3. Your script is not set to full retail, but to your price on your account. You should default all your prices on your account on dropshipdesign so that the full retail price is set since the data feeds would show the price set by the account holder, not the full retail price, unless the prices are unchanged.
4. Is it possible for the products model and weight to be inserted automatically from the script into the product input page since it is included in the datafeed? Customers may look for items by item number, and that is usually the way I would be looking up items myself for admin purposes. The weight helps justify the shipping cost, gives the customer more information about a product, and also goes hand in hand with disclaimers like this.
5. The datafeed is out of date since there are new categories that are not showing. Is there a way that I can update the script myself with updated datafeeds to ensure up to date info?
6. The wholesale cost of this item is $[url removed, login to view] and it is retailing on my website for $116.91. By default, the retail price is $[url removed, login to view] and the MAP price is $190. I even used the script feed to double check the price. I should not be selling it for less than $190 and the pricing structure is clearly faulty. There may be other items following this scheme. Please look into this and find a way so that MAP priced items do not go below the MAP price and that the prices show correctly. Errors like this could be bad for business.
PM for more details.
