We previously paid to have this done and as it is discovered now it was done either incorrectly or needs to be edited to work properly. Currently it does not "Real-Time" update quantities and this needs to be fixed.
Below is an outline of the specific task keeping in moind that is is already been created and only needs to be edited or re-worked properly making neccessary fixes.
ONLY the lowest bids to help me will be consideered for this mall project and as well we will consider hiring on for further and all future work for various duties including working with Zen Cart, Drupal and others.
CWR Electronics provides data feeds to our customers so that they can automatically update their own stores and databases with fresh data from our back-end server. The feed is located at /feeds/[url removed, login to view] and when accessed with certain variables, returns a set of data specific to your request.
id - This is a unique ID that maps to your account number. Your ID is: MPB_MzUyMTY4MzUyMTY4Mzcx
version - This variable must be present and must be set to 2. Example: version=2
fields - This is a comma-delimited list of fields you'd like to see in your data. For example, if you want to see sku, quantity available, and price in your download, you would add 'fields=sku,qty,price' to the URL you are using to access the feed. A complete list of field abbreviations and their descriptions can be found by referencing Appendix A HERE.
format - This is the format in which you'd like data to be returned. Valid formats are xml, csv, and tab. For example, if you'd like the output in a tab-delimited format, just add 'format=tab' to the URL you are using to access the feed.
You Must Also Include One of the Following Variables
time - A UNIX timestamp. Only products whose data has changed since this time will be returned. For example, if you want to see products whose data has changed since 01/07/2010, just add 'time=1262840400' to the URL you are using to access the feed.
ohtime - A UNIX timestamp. Only products whose QUANTITY has changed since this time will be returned. Since our inventory levels are constantly changing, we provide a timestamp for quantity changes separate from other data that doesn't change as often. We recommend that you set up 2 downloads: One for downloading data that changes infrequently using 'time=' which would run daily, and one for downloading inventory data using 'ohtime=' which would run as often as every 15 minutes.
NOTE - When using the new feed, Requests for inventory data using ohtime= will only return sku, quantity, upc, and manufacturer part number.
skus - This is a comma-delimited list of CWR skus that you would like returned in your feed. If you include a list of skus, only data for those products will be returned. Simply add 'skus=10000,10001,10002...' to the URL you are using to access the feed.
cats - This is a comma-delimited list of CWR category IDs that you would like returned in your feed. If you include a list of category IDs, only data for products in those categories will be returned. You can combine categories and manufacturers to further narrow your data. Simply add 'cats=2*38,1*16...' to the URL you are using to access the feed. Reference Appendix B HERE for a full list of category IDs
mans - This is a comma-delimited list of CWR manufacturer IDs that you would like returned in your feed. If you include a list of manufacturer IDs, only data for products by those manufacturers will be returned. You can combine manufacturers and categories to further narrow your data. Simply add 'mans=100001,100026...' to the URL you are using to access the feed. Reference Appendix C HERE for a full list of manufacturer IDs
special/closeout/rebate/reman - Use these variables to return only those products that are on sale, have a rebate offer, or are remanufactured. Simply set the value to 1. For example, use &special=1&closeout=1 to return all products that are specials and closeouts.
NOTE - If you use these variables, time= and fields= are not required. All products in these categories will be returned regardless of timestamps, and only fields related to sales,rebates and reman will be returned.
1. If you want an XML document containing sku, price, short description, and manufacturer part number for all products whose data has changed since 01/08/2010, your URL would look like this: [url removed, login to view];version=2&format=xml&fields=sku,price,sdesc,mfgn&time=1262926800
