I am designing a joomla virtuemart shop (Joomla 1.5 and virtuemart 1.1.9). it is almost done.
I added 2000+ products from product supplier's XML feed file to my virtuemart store by cutting, editing, converting XML to CSV file, then importing it to my store manually.
So products in XML file feed and in my virtuemart store have the same SKU now.
1- BUT I need to fetch stock info and price info of products from an external URL which has an XML feed (XML feed is not designed for virtuemart, it is a custom designed XML feed of product supplier). I can update stock info and price info by manually doing a few steps on my computer and I update my products' stock info & price info but it takes time and it is tiring to do it manually everyday. So I want to update my store's products' stock info and price info by just clicking a button on my joomla web site's admin panel from an external XML feed URL.
So, I need a component or module or plug-in for my virtuemart store.
2- Total product number in XML feed may change day by day. So I also want to see which products in XML are new (added today in product supplier's XML and not yet on my virtuemart store) and which products in XML are gone (no longer supplied by product supplier). To do that, all products in XML should be compared to all products in my virtuemart store one by one according to their SKU. So I can unpublish "no longer supplied" products from my store by hand, and I can add new products (added today in XML) to their categories by hand. Except "newly added products and deleted products" in XML feed file, other products (which are in XML file and in my store database) are just needed to be updated for their stock info and price info.
Give me a low price offer for a module to do that work because I haven't started my online business yet so I need to earn some money first.
