Offers an alternative to the built-in CS-Cart mechanism for working with custom product feeds, the essence of which is to create configurable templates (which defines the format for its construction) and create separate feeds that can use previously created templates as well as flexible conditions (criteria) for adding products in it.

Ability to change feature name

On the editing category page there is ability to change feature name. You can rename a feature and specify a datafeed to apply the new feature name.


Ability to create separate datafeeds for a specific vendor (Multi-Vendor) and storefront (Multi-Vendor Ultimate)

Marketplace administrator can create separate datafeeds for vendors (Multi-Vendor edition) and storefronts (Multi-Vendor Ultimate).

Ability to define a name of datafeed's file

You can specify any comfortable name for datafeed's file that may help you to find necessary datafeed from complete list.

Ability to extend templates with third-party add-ons

Add-on adds the possibility to extend datafeed templates with third-party add-ons. Thus, you need a development by your own forces or third-party developers.

Ability to feed images with watermarks (integration with standard CS-Cart add-on “Watermarks”)

There is a checkbox in general datafeed setting that helps to manage images with watermarks in the datafeed.


Ability to feed product prices taking into account promotions with type “For catalog”

In the general settings of feed there is a checkbox that helps to feed prices taking into account actual promotions of catalog.


Ability to manage criteria for products in the datafeed by conditions

There is a separate tab where you can set conditions to select products for your datafeed.

There are following selection criteria:

  • status with price - price range from and to;
  • status with stock - product in stock only or all products;
  • status with quantity - quantity range from and to;
  • presence of product description - products with filled in description only or all products;
  • presence of product images - products with images only or all products;
  • Filter with Stop-words - you can set Stop-words in following fields: Product name, Brief description, Detailed description, Keywords.

Ability to set authorization to get access to datafeed's file

There is ability for each datafeed to set login and password for the purpose of confidentiality of your data. If you have set login and password, you have to authorize before view the file.


Ability to specify criteria to exclude a product in datafeed

In case if you wish to exclude specific products from datafeed, you can use one of the following criteria:

  • corresponding product Category;
  • filling Manually - specify products necessary for exclusion only.

Ability to specify criteria to include a product in datafeed

You can manage criteria flexible to select products in datafeed:

  • corresponding product Category;
  • corresponding product Feature;
  • filling Manually (products necessary for inclusion only).

Ability to specify feature Brand in datafeed

There is an ability to specify feature by purpose "Brand” for each datafeed.

Ability to use additional parameters for datafeeds added with third-party add-ons

At additional parameters of datafeed you can set arbitrary values for parameters and use it in the template by variable name. For example, using a code {$abpfe_p1} you get a value utf-8.


Automatic generating an upload file (by Cron task)

There is an ability to generate datafeed's file by Cron task. It allows to avoid peak load on your server at the moment of appealing the file as it can happen if you generate file on the fly.


Choose the currency for datafeed

There is an ability to choose the currency for each datafeed.

Create datafeed template on the bases of integrated template

By default add-on adds standard datafeed template of products, where typical data (fields) of product feeds are used. On the bases of such template, you can create unlimited number of separate product feeds with its own settings and feed criteria.

 

Edit datafeed template without programming

You can edit template with no need to edit the code of a file in the platform. You need to know bases of Smarty only (Smarty is used at datafeed templates), so you could cover most number of issues with modification of integrated standard template.

Limit product images quantity displayed in the feed

Add-on adds the possibility to limit product images quantity in the feed. It increases speed of datafeed generating, exceeds datafeed size and helps to pay attention to priority data.

Multilingual datafeed

You can create separate datafeed for each language that is installed in your store.

Setting to feed variations of products

For variations that are created as one product, there is a setting that feeds variations as one product when the setting is active. When the setting is disabled, variations will be fed as separate products.


Support of different feed formats

Add-on supports following feed formats:

  • xml
  • csv
  • yml
  • txt

It allows you to use the add-on for various purposes (as there is a large number of cases when datafeed file should be generated in various formats).

Support to generate datafeed “on the fly”

Datafeed's file will be generated before you download it. It is relevant if you need to get the most actual data always. You can download the file as well as display its content immediately on the screen without being downloaded.

There are additional variables for datafeed templates (integration with “AB: Products short description from features” add-on)

Thanks to integration with the “AB: Products short description from features” add-on there are additional variables that are available for use in templates: {$product.short_description} and {$product.feature_short_desc}, that serves to change empty short product descriptions on short descriptions from features.
