Project Description

Get specificatons for product submission from [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] etc. I will start with 8 of the comparison sites and maybe expand from there.

My shopping cart software has a export feature that allows database export. It allows you to choose the fields and order to export into either a tab delimited or xml file format. The software allows you to rename each field when it exports. You can save the export theme with a unique name.

You will create themes for each of the different comparison sites. There are 8 "EXTRA" fields that can be formated to discriminate which products go to which sites. Each extra field will be designated for a specific comparison site. The information stored in that site will be...site catagory, CPC bid, etc.

A script or macro will be needed to interperate the information in the "EXTRA" field... Only include the products that I want to go to the specific comparison site,

Example of what might be included in "Extra" field...
Extra field 1 ([url removed, login to view]) Category, CPC bid, etc
Extra field 2 ([url removed, login to view]) Category, CPC bid, etc

If there is data in Extra feild one. then that product will be copied from the download file to a seperate file that only includes products that I want to include in [url removed, login to view] data feed.

Possible solution 1
1. Export data from shopping cart software using the [url removed, login to view]
export format.
2. Open [url removed, login to view] export file. (This file will include all
products. Including products that I don't want to list on
[url removed, login to view])
3. Run Script that
A. removes all unwanted products. (product not going to
[url removed, login to view] comparison site)
B. Interprete information in Extra field (1) create addional
datbase feilds then insert appropriate information.
ie. catagory, CPC bid, etc
C. Add a field for what page product will be found on with
anchor if possible (I will create and supply this information
and will be one specific page for each comparicon site. ie
[url removed, login to view]) Or one page
that has all products submited to all sites.
D. Create new file formated correctly for submission to
[url removed, login to view]

Possible solution 2 (this is preferable solution)
1. Shopping cart software exports all fields needed for all
comparison software sites
2. Open export file (this file will include all products including
products that will go to no comparison site, 1 site, 2 sites, etc
3. Interprete info in Extra feild 1 (this field will include
Comparison sites to include product with that sites category,
CPC, etc.)
4. Copy products to seperate files for each comparison site
including category, CPC bid, etc.
5 Rearange field into correct order rename header for each
field to match appropriate Comparison site.
6. Add a field for what page product will be found on with
anchor if possible (I will create and supply this information
and will be one specific page for each comparicon site. ie
[url removed, login to view]) Or one page for all
products that are listed on all sites.
ie [url removed, login to view]
7. Save file for each comparison site to a specific file name
ie. [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], etc


To start I will manualy submit data feed to each site. A auto-submit program is the optimal solution for this proceedure.
