I am running a business with a dropship model. One of my supplier’s (he is using Volusion) sent me his public XML feed to integrate into my Shopify store so that I can synch with their inventory. How do I do this? Is there a clear step-by-step tutorial for this? Is there an app?
I could not find any recent relevant threads about this. I would really appreciate any help and advice on this!
Such task can't be accomplished without an app or custom coding right now. You can try https://apps.shopify.com/channelape-automated-ecommerce app or ask us to create a custom app.
We can create a script that updates inventory in Shopify from your vendor XML. Our script will download the file from them, run through all the products, and update your Shopify inventory. The script will be hosted on our servers, and that's why it will too have a recurring cost. That's the type of tasks that can't be done just inside Shopify.
Please drop me a line at email@example.com and we'll discuss costs and timing.
