Support » Plugin: Import XML and RSS Feeds » Create product/posts via XML feed automatically

    Hi there,

    I would like to create a price comparison site for books, and thus will use Datafeedr or other retailer-supplied XML product feeds. As I would also like to be able to add content in reference to each product (on their own “product page”), I would like to convert product listings coming in via the product feeds into product posts (“product page”) on my website. How can I do this?

    I imagine I would first need to create a custom post type with matching fields to those in the incoming product feeds. And then use this plugin to map the feed fields into the post fields?

    Can this be done? Will posts be created automatically? Can the post data be updated automatically, and duplicates avoided?

    Thanks

    Hi @mungbean,

    Thanks for your comments.

    Our plugin can import the feed only manually, we will plan to implement a schedule (auto import) feature in a future release of the plugin. Also, we are working on a solution to match the existing articles to prevent the duplicates, this feature will be released in a future release as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the response.

    I’m very excited to hear that you will be enhancing the plugin to support automation and duplicate detection. Do you have an ETA for the release of these enhancements?

    In order to create content from an XML file currently, manually, I would need to obtain the complete product list XML from the retailer, or just the API that connects to their XML product list? Does this plugin work with product list APIs/affiliate APIs as an import source?

    If it’s the complete product list, I would then need to manually map the fields to the corresponding post fields. But if it’s only the API, I can map the fields from the API to a post field?

    Thanks again
