Importing directly into ECWID


Is it possible to import customers and products directly into ECWID using a dotnet Winforms application? If so is there any sample code available?

The import functionality in Ecwid currently allows to work with products, but not the customers. However, import is based on simple text files and is platform agnostic - you can create those files merely in the Notepad or your favorite spreadsheet editor, no programming required.

Default Thanks but I want top automate import

Thank you for the response.

We want to do this product import without user intervention. Using an http put or something like that, directly from an external data source, such as an accounting package.

Can the import only be done through the user interface on ECWID, or is it possible to automate updates?

Unfortunately, the import can only be made in the Ecwid control panel, it is not quite possible to do it remotely yet.

Is there any updates regarding automating the import process?

I won't purchase this software until I know that automation is possible.
We should be able to, at-least, FTP a CSV file into a directory each day and the ecwid system catches it and updates the site. As earlier written, an HTTP-PUT would be great, or better yet, and MySQL example to send directly to db.

There are HUGE updates from 2012 posts.

Fully automated (even continuous) store update is available now via very sensible and powerfull Ecwid API:
https://developers.ecwid.com/api-documentation#products You can do virtually everything.

Sure, programming required (and not directly to DB).

Also, look for a lot of Store Management and other Apps here
