This is an application to import a txt file into Zen Cart. The sample txt is attached. This project requires the following steps;
1. import txt on a daily basis and overwrite and data except description and pictures
2. provide a simple web interface that allows me to select a store number and then browse through data imported and add to this data 3 fields - a short description, a long description, attach a photograph and create 3 re sized versions
3. finally provide a cronjob sql import utility which will each day import the data from the above application directly into zen cart mapping the tables and fields accordingly, including pointing to picture
4. If you know zen cart importing such as using easy populate you will see this is a quite simple
We will make use of Zen Cart standard field with no customizations.
From a business use this is how the application will be used
1. admin will upload txt files on a regular basis, core data will be overwritten, but any existing pictures or descriptions will remain -the key field is the product sku number
2. store owners will take photographs and add and edit descriptions
3. a cronjob will obtain the data and inject it into zen cart tables on a nightly basis
That is the complete phase 1 applications. The successful candidate will work on many enhancements as the application grows.
Please ensure that your bid and time table are final. I will not entertain anyone who changes bids. You should have a understanding on Zen Cart which is written in php and mysql, so the application should probably follow suit.
