How to Use Opencart XML Import Pro
How to Set Up an XML Feed
The first thing you need to do before you can import products from an XML feed is to set up the feed in your Opencart admin panel. You can set up as many feeds as you want, from different sources or suppliers. Here is how to set up an XML feed:
Go to Catalog > XML Import Pro > Feeds and click on the "Add New" button.
Enter a name for your feed, such as "Supplier A". This name is for your reference only and will not be visible to your customers.
Enter the URL of your XML feed, such as "http://www.suppliera.com/xmlfeed.xml". You can also upload an XML file from your computer or server if you prefer.
Select a language and a store for your feed. This will determine which language and store your products will be imported into.
Select a category for your feed. This will determine which category your products will be assigned to in your Opencart store. You can also create a new category if you want.
Select a manufacturer for your feed. This will determine which manufacturer your products will be assigned to in your Opencart store. You can also create a new manufacturer if you want.
Select a tax class for your feed. This will determine which tax class your products will be assigned to in your Opencart store. You can also create a new tax class if you want.
Select a stock status for your feed. This will determine which stock status your products will be assigned to in your Opencart store when they are out of stock. You can also create a new stock status if you want.
Select an update mode for your feed. This will determine how your products will be updated from the XML feed. You can choose between three modes: "Add new products only", "Update existing products only", or "Add new products and update existing products".
Select an import mode for your feed. This will determine how your products will be imported from the XML feed. You can choose between two modes: "Manual import" or "Automatic import". If you choose "Manual import", you will have to click on the "Import" button to start the import process. If you choose "Automatic import", you will have to set up a CRON job to run the import process at a specified time and frequency. We will explain how to do that later in this article.
Click on the "Save" button to save your feed settings.
Now you have set up your XML feed, but you are not done yet. You still need to map the XML elements to the product fields in your Opencart store. This is a very important step, as it will determine how your product data will be imported and displayed. Let's see how to do that in the next section.
How to Map XML Elements to Product Fields
Mapping XML elements to product fields is the process of telling Opencart XML Import Pro which XML element corresponds to which product field in your Opencart store. For example, you can map the XML element to the product field "Name", or the XML element to the product field "Price". You can map any XML element to any product field, as long as they are compatible.
To map XML elements to product fields, you need to follow these steps:
Go to Catalog > XML Import Pro > Feeds and click on the "Edit" button of the feed you want to map.
