Switching products temporarily between sale and catalog modes

I am about to start an online store for a client and am hesitating between Shopify and woocommerce.

One on the key points is the following : one the client's software will output daily a csv file featuring the current stock of each product. I am planing to develop a script that will automatically switch all items with a stock equal to zero into catalog mode (no price and no "add to cart" icon displayed, but possibly "out of stock" instead), and as soon as a product has new stock in the csv file, the price and the "add to cart" icon will be back on display.

This seems to be feasible with the woocommerce API, but from what I read online about the Shopify API, it doesn't seem so...

Any tips or info would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
