Downloading goods from an online store (for analyzing prices from price lists, adding content)
If you already have a catalog of categories and products in your online store, it must be transferred to the program in the Base Catalog (BC) to create data integration between the site and the program database.
This is necessary for the correct and error-free updating of the site from the Elbuz Jumper program.
First you need to transfer your product catalog and category hierarchy from your online store to the Elbuz Jumper program
to create synchronization between the site and the program. Using the program, add and configure price lists to load data from price lists into the program.
Next, the loaded list of products from the price lists is compared with the loaded list from your online store, the same goods,
which are already in your store and in the downloaded price lists are compared and matched as the same.
New products that are not in the store will be added when updating the base catalog, where all your products from the online store are stored.
When updating the base catalog for matched products, only prices are updated with the search for the minimum price from all counterparties,
that provide a particular product.
Further, this data from the program is transferred back to the site, and thus the data on the site is updated based on your prices and products from the price lists.
