Import inventory from FTP

Goal: to automatically adjust products inventory levels using source data files stored on FTP server.

Core features:

  • automatically logs in to FTP server

  • processes unlimited number of files

  • files are processed on a user defined schedule

  • adjusts (using deltas) or sets inventory

  • filters files using regex expression

  • moves processed files to another directory (or removes it completely)

  • renames processed files

Above can be further extended with the use of Hooks:

  • adding/removing tags to processed products

  • skipping source file rows based on column values

  • skipping fulfillments based on product properties (tag, name etc)

Hooks will also allow you to define any custom action not listed above. Please get in touch with us at [email protected] if you need assistance!

Action: Inventory level for a product adjusted.
