My company sells products in bulk - sometimes several thousand at a time. It is very difficult for our users to add each product.
Is there a way for my customers to upload products via CSV or another method.
We need to get the following categories. Product name, amount, size. After that, we'd like to send them to our regular shopify payment page and have them check out like a normal customer.
Thanks as always!
I definitely see what you're trying to do here!
Unfortunately, there is no way to have customers upload products via CSV to the cart page that I know of.
What I recommend is using cart permalinks to send customers a pre-filled cart:
Maybe someone else will have another work around for you!
Best of luck.
What sort of details are you hoping to know?
This is all conjecture that it will work, but it should (within certain browsers). Once you've written the code to upload and parse the csv file, it would be a case of looping through each row, and adding the quantity and item to cart. You'd probably want to also have some type of feedback so the customer can be made aware when certain products no longer exist, or there is not enough stock to fill the order.
You can add - that's noted in section 4.2. It's the method many themes use to add items without redirecting to the cart.
If you don't feel like giving this a try yourself you're welcome shoot me an email and we can bounce some ideas around. Plenty of questions I'd need to ask that we don't need to bore the forums with.
