Creation of a product catalog from scratch (StartUp) based on the processing and analysis of price lists (prices) of suppliers

This service will be useful for those who are just starting their business, regardless of whether it is online trading (online store) or regular retail.

The initial product catalog can be created in two ways:

  • based on our already prepared catalogue;
  • based on the processing and analysis of the prices of your suppliers or competitors.

Creation of a basic product catalog based on the finished catalog

You have the opportunity to create a basic product catalog based on our ready-made catalog, this will greatly speed up the entire initial process of working with content content. You are provided with a repository of hundreds of thousands of products from the E-Trade Content DB database with detailed technical specifications and product photos, with the ability to select the necessary product categories. After creating a product catalog, you will immediately have the opportunity to create a modern block for filtering products by characteristics (attributes) on the site, since each product will already have all the necessary information for this.

The product catalog can be created in any format for data exchange, such as CommerceML (1C Enterprise), CSV, XML, Yandex Market (YML), etc.

Creating a product catalog from scratch (basic catalog) based on the processing and analysis of supplier or competitor prices

The scope of this service may include the following:

  • creation of a unique list of products in the accounting system (in the base catalog), i. e. creating a list of unique products at minimum prices based on the initial price lists of suppliers;
  • comparison of products in manual and automatic mode;
  • generation of product names based on predefined formulas, additional reference data using various generation algorithms (formation based on product category, auto-replacement in names from supplier price lists based on a list of invalid keywords, etc. );
  • setting up price lists (prices) of suppliers for import into the database (filtering products according to specified import rules).

The cost of creating a catalog based on price lists:

  • setting up data import from 1 price list - 50USD;
  • manual comparison of products (creating a unique list) - 75USD per 1000 products from price lists;
  • search for descriptions and photos for products - by agreement.

An example of calculating the cost of creating a catalog based on price lists: you have 5 price lists in total, 5*50=250USD.
After setting the prices, an exact figure will be obtained on the number of products to be compared, for example, 2500 products were obtained for comparison, the cost of work on comparison is 187. 5USD the total cost of creating a catalog is 250+187. 5=437. 5USD.

draw your attention to

Hierarchy of product categories - qprice.org

Before starting work on setting up the import of price lists (price lists) of suppliers, it is necessary to agree on product groups (categories of goods) that will be further formed in the output data (in the retail price list, consolidated price list, on the website of the online store). This stage is necessary to ensure that all products from the price lists fall into your categories, i. e. for example, if your site does not assume the category "Printers", but this category is in the price lists of suppliers, then this category will not be set up for import by us, so you will initially be required to provide a complete hierarchy of product categories that you would like to see on the showcase of your site (online store). Categories can be created directly in the admin area of your online store, and then sent to us for processing. Our team of specialists has developed ready-made and effective solutions for data exchange between accounting systems, so we recommend that you contact us to agree on data exchange methods.

This service will give a strong impetus to the development of your future project. Further data processing will be greatly simplified due to the smaller amount of data for further processing and thus save your time.
