X-Cart Product Import
If you have several hundred or more products the X-Cart product import feature will save valuable time in getting your products inserted. However, the import feature requires varying degrees of preparation including:
- Creating a spreadsheet with complete product information including weights, image references, product numbers, etc.
- Having product detail and thumbnail images available and referenced in the spreadsheet for each product
- Having your categories specified for each product
X-Cart’s import feature validates each image and category during the import process. The import file must be 100% accurate or the import process will fail each time it can not find the category or image(s) specified. The most common causes for failure are the misspelling of image names (they do not match the name of the actual image, have upper or lowercase letters missing, etc.) and missing categories.
Xcart Updates and Upgrades
Are you running an older version of Xcart and wish to upgrade to the newest version? Take advantage of the latest features and modules of Xcart by upgrading your older outdated version!
Upgrading Xcart can be a tedious process involving the creation of a cloned cart and database (so your live site can continue without interruption) and the process of upgrading in steps (to achieve levels of compatibility called ‘branches’). The process can take several hours to accomplish and possibly longer if errors occur.
