What's the easiest way to add thousands of products
« on: March 20, 2017, 06:38:47 am »
My Joomla version is 3.6.5, Virtuemart3.0.19.1. I'm using VM BE PRO to upload products. As I have thousands of products, I have to upload products everyday. I don't know what's the easiest way to update new products. Update locally then re-upload website regularly (maybe once a week), or update online and back-up everyday?

If I update locally, what's files and data I need to replace online?

Please give me suggestion, many thanks. Website Design, Web Development, Graphic Deisgn, Display System

I have always used CSVI to manage the products in large stores, but you already have VM VE Pro - can't that be used?

My largest client at the moment runs CSVI nightly as a CRON. The site itself is automatically backed up 4 times daily by software on the server.
