  1. Hi Talon,

    It's probably down to the changes I made. ;) I may have reused a variable (possible an array) name. I don't have tax turned on or use any of the settings so I didn't check those things.

    Actually I think it's standard osc bug error, since admin/invoice.php or admin/orders.php doesn't show it correctly either.

    Current Status: In Progress, of componentizing.

     

    Amazon: Feed API Found

    BizRate: Completed

    Froogle: Completed

    MySimon: Feed API Needed

    PriceGrabber: Feed API Needed

    Shopping.com: Feed API Needed

    Yahoo.com: Completed

     

    Any help in locating the Feed API's is much appreciated. Please let me know if there are others out there.

    I'll try to check for some API's, does anyone else know any other feeder sites?


  3. when i read it, i interperted the offer_id to be the product_id (generated by osC). it could be the product model too, but not everyone uses unique ones or even uses them. when a product is deleted in osC, can another product be issued that previously used product id?

    I interpret offer_id to be products_model. For those who aren't using easypopulate, they probably wouldnt use offer_id.


  4. I noticed "offer_id" in the Froogle API as a required field... currently our feeds don't contain that information, but everything runs smoothly. Should this be added?

     

    "[offer_id is] an unique alphanumeric identifier for each product - e.g., your internal ID code/SKU.

    IMPORTANT: Once you submit a product with a unique offer_id, this number must not change when you send in a new feed. You must use exactly the same offer_id for each product you submit again in a subsequent feed. "

    I think adding offer id is fine, especially since I bet most of you guys are using Easypopulate, which requires all products to have an unique id anyways. For those of us using master products and EP, our masters id number can be copied over, but as in your previous froogle, i believe you got rid of all duplicate products. Also people wouldn't usually change product id numbers as it'll create a double item with two different product id's in osc.


  5. Although it's probabbly pretty simple to code in master products, it'll probably take me a while to figure it out, if you could give a shot at it, it would be great.

     

    Also I was wondering for Froogle's encoding, do we use UTF-8 Latin-1 , i don't remember seeing it on the thread or readme.

     

    Thanks.


  6. I'm just installing this as well and will let you know how it goes. But mines a little different from everyone elses since i use master products along with a lot of other people.

     

    So perhaps someone can help.

     

    First off the excel created fine and all my active products show up, but my master product holds the description for my slave products, so right now my slave products aren't showing the master product as the description. Also for my master product I have the price as 0 and active, but don't want it to show up in froogle, because its a place holder on osc for the slave products.

     

    That's pretty much all the problems I have so far, i could modify it all by hand, but then I already have 2k lines of excel and planning to add 3-5k more.

     

    Anyone know the best fix for this?

    i'm not familar with master products, but i assume there is some sort of database table that keeps track of the master products and it's associated slaves. you'd have to write an sql query to retrieve this information, then write code to tell it to use the associated master product's description if the product is a slave of a master. also to avoid the master products from displaying you'd have to write a check for them.

    Yeah that's pretty much it, it associates by using a 1 or 0, for master or slave, and the slave points to its associated master. I just gotta figure out how to write the sql statement now, hopefully it'll be useful for others using mp as well. MP is a great tool for big volume sellers.
