I am new to Shopify and have been working with the platform for a little under a month. I like what's available regarding apps, themes, and ease of getting things done quickly and correctly. However, I do have a question when it comes to stocking my store. My provider will be giving me an XML feed to keep the inventory fresh and up to date. Is there a way to take this XML feed and use it to link and sync products to my store?
Hi, Mike. My name is Tira, and I'm a Shopify Guru here to help you out!
Welcome to Shopify! It sounds like you have been doing quite a bit of exploring on the platform and that's great you have been working on your store for a bit. Glad to hear you enjoy what we have to offer!
You can upload multiple products by importing them through a CSV file. You can read more about the format and how to import the file here in our help doc here. I recommend this method as it will make sure that your products follow the correct format when importing. You can also use this method to edit your products in bulk!
There are also a few apps from our App Store that can help you with importing your XML product files directly into your store:
Since you are new to Shopify, I also wanted to recommend checking out some of our guides on getting started and making your first sale:

What kind of products will you be selling?
you can use StockKeeper app to add products from XML feed and setup automatic updates https://apps.shopify.com/stockkeeper.
After initial upload pricing and quantities will be updated during each subsequent run.
Also it's possible to setup pricing rules and filters to include/exclude products you need.
