Recommend excel / csv spreadsheet product upload utility
« on: January 31, 2017, 20:43:41 pm »
Hi,

I am sure this has been discussed to death at length but i would like some info on what is a good utility to mass upload products with and modify/maintain them

this is for a catalogue only site so not really interested in selling but maintaining products with images elsewhere on web

I know there are many products but would like some info on straight-forward one for end-customer to use?

this is new site with latest package download and joomla from here

thanks in advance

albert

I have always used CSVI (and formerly CSVimproved) to manage products like that.  https://csvimproved.com/

I think that you have 2 choices.
My product VM Be Pro and CSVI.
CSVI Pro Work with model to import/export anything (Products,orders or any tables in Joomla) from CSV files, but can be complex for casual users.

VM Be Pro using XLS, ODS or CSV files and can autodetect fields by column name and sheet name, so at the moment your sheets  have right columns, you need only 4 clicks to import
My tool can import images too(and can resize it) and you can batch edit most product fields too

You can get CSVI for 69.95€ here https://csvimproved.com/get-csvi-pro
You can get VM Be Pro for 20€ here http://shop.st42.fr/en/products/vm-be-pro-batch-product-edit.htm

I'd (also) warmly recommend CSVI for this purpose. And many others :)

I like the look of the VMBEPRO

And for 20 euros it looks to be a steal!

Studio42 is also an active member of this forum helping many users and has good knowledge of the latest VM changes

Having used CSVi for some time in the early days - I think it has become too bloated for the average user. IMHO

I just installed VMBEPRO and I can testify it is an excellent tool, a real must if you are serious in managing an e-store with many products.
Studio42 has been fast and precise in providing support. I reccomend it 100%

THanks bortolani ;)
And new Quick edit module for VM Be Pro is coming soon to edit, add products and categories in front end using ajax(no need to change page).
