    Hi all.

    Please bear with me as i'm not the most technical of people. We have built a website on the ecommerce platform Prestashop and are dealing with one supplier who provides all information of products, prices, stock availability etc through an FTP server which is updated hourly. The files on these are in XML format.

    I am trying to see if there is a solution, middle man software, that will allow me to link these updating files to my website. Does anyone know if any exist or if this is a custom solution we would have to look at getting built? Any help is greatly appreciated. - Lei

    You could probably set up a CRON-job to parse the XML, and input the entries into (or update existing records) in a database, if you want. But that would definitely be a custom job.
