Hello,

Thanks a lot for reaching out to us!

We apologize for the delay with replying.

It is possible to create the XML feed using Ecwid API (https://developers.ecwid.com/api-documentation). You can develop this solution yourself or hire a developer for the task. Our customization service team might be able to help you with that on the paid basis, you can contact them by filling out the form at https://ecwidcom.typeform.com/to/vIlijv Please describe your request in as many details as possible and they will get back to you with a quote.

Thank you!

XML feed should be a standard part of the ECWID shop. To suggest that this should be self dxeveloped is ridiculous

Hi Chris!

Thanks a lot for your message and for your feedback.

Generally, in Ecwid, it is possible to export your product's feed in a .CSV format. Please, refer to this screenshot for the full list of the product parameters that can be exported: http://take.ms/PPjEo

Also, here is the article with the instructions: https://support.ecwid.com/hc/en-us/a...ctsinafilenbsp

You can try to convert your .CSV file to .XML format.

Ecwid already has the ability to generate the .XML files for the popular Marketplaces, please, find the list below:

- Google Shopping
- PriceGrabber
- Nextag
- Shopzilla
- eBay Commerce Network

The .XML feeds are generated according to the requirements of these marketplaces. You can use one of the supported integrations with Marketplaces or you can try to use one of the supported .XML feed in order to upload it to your 3rd party comparing prices service. You may feel free to rearrange it according to the service requirements.

It is also possible to generate an .XML feed for your Ecwid Store with the help of our API: https://developers.ecwid.com/api-doc...#get-a-product
You need to create a custom script or application to obtain this data. Please pay your attention that development of such application/script will require programming skills. If you need assistance in creating a custom solution for your store, please consider hiring a professional programmer. Also, we have a custom development team that makes custom solutions on the paid basis. If you need help in this feel free to contact our customization team directly at https://ecwidcom.typeform.com/to/vIlijv

Hope this helps! Please, let us know if any further assistance is required. We'll be glad to help you.

This should all be automatic...There should be a standard rss / xml feed from your platform. To suggest exporting to csv files or special development as I have said is ridiculous. There are a 1000 reasons why someone would want such feeds other than the 4 you suggest.



The most important XML feed that should be a standard part of your platform is the product Catalog, with the ability to choose product groups etc.

Surely you must know the importance of such a feature.

Chris

Hi there,

Edward here, Ecwid Team.

I totally see your point and reason as to why you'd like to be able to generate .xml files in your Ecwid store.

The problem is that XML is a markup language with a particular set of rules, which, as you mentioned, can be used to upload store data to different third-party services.

The problem is that this set of rules differ a lot depending on the service that you want to upload an .xml file to. Consequently, it's hard to come up with a general format of the file, which will be exported/imported in Ecwid.

That's why we have developed special XML feeds for our marketplaces as Kenga mentioned in her post.

I'm afraid that all available options to generate an .xml file specifically for your store data have already been described in this post.

However, I'll make sure to pass your feedback on to our product team so that it will be taken into consideration. Furthermore, I added your comments to our "Feature request list" where we are tracking and analyzing the demand for requested features. The more people request a feature, the more likely it will be added to Ecwid.

So, thank you very much for contributing.

An XML feed of latest products or catalogue can be added to a third party website and I would have though was of importance to your service and platform

The XML feed from the cataolgue page for example can easily be customised to display as a widget using a service such as feedwind or www.mikl.com

For example take a look at my forum http://wwwthai-amulets.com, you will note feeds in both the right and left hand columns, one is an XML feed from my personal blog, the other is an XML feed from a news organisation.

I should be able to add such a feed from my ECWID store to show products. Look at any Wordpress shop and the XML feed is standard. Look at any custom ecommerce carts, XML is standard. This is almost a universal feature, yet it is missing from ECWID.

Yes I know you have the ability to add a single product by javasript to a third party site, but this is inadequate. You would offer far more flexibility to the end user by using XML for this same task, not least of which is customisation of design, number of images etc etc
