I'm hoping someone can help me, possibly this has been covered already. I manage a used DVD store. We use WP for our blog and are using WP-Table Reloaded to display a searchable table of our inventory here. We would now like to provide our customers the ability to shop from our blog and this is where I'm running into some difficulty. I've looked at WP-ecommerce and was a bit overwhelmed by it. Most of the shop plug-ins I've seen appear to require me to create each of my products or to suggest that I can "add a buy now/add to cart button to pages or posts".
As we have over 5000 items in inventory, I'm really looking for something that will allow me to upload a .csv file or similar to create my product list. Am I asking too much or misunderstanding what existing plug-ins like Ecommerce, E-Shop, Web Shop can do? The thought of having to manually add over 5000 individual products is a bit much.
Does anyone out there have any experience setting up a shop like this?
