It is possible to launch an import of catalog data for any specific brand manually or to adjust the import settings for individual brands so import can be done automatically on a schedule.
The ASAP Network Data Import page in your X-Cart store's backend will be the hub for all your catalog data import operations.
In the Available Brands section, you will be able to view detailed information about the import of catalog data for each brand.
The section columns provide the following information:
Brand Name: Name of the brand (as received from ASAP Network)
Brand ID: The brand AAIA ID (as received from ASAP Network)
SKU Suffix: The custom SKU suffix (as configured in the brand import settings)
Price Adj: The price adjustment (as configured in the brand import settings)
Products: The number of products of the brand available for import from ASAP (according to the information received from ASAP)
Imported: The number of products that have been imported from ASAP. The number is a link to a page where you can view detailed information about the products that have been imported.
Unimported: The number of products for which import has failed. The number is a link to a page where you can view detailed information about the products that have not been imported.
Import Status: Current import status for the brand. The possible statuses are Queued, Scheduled, In Progress, Failed, and Completed.
Each brand on the list has its own Settings button that allows you to re-adjust the import preferences for the brand and configure a schedule for the automated import of catalog data, if necessary.
Each brand that can be imported also has its own Import button that allows you to manually launch an import of catalog data for it.
To manually launch the import of catalog data for a brand, simply click the Import button opposite the brand name. Clicking the button will create a task to import catalog data for the brand. If more than one task needs to be handled by the system, the task will be queued. The integration can provide notification messages on the same page about the status of data import. To see the current status, refresh the page.
For import tasks in the status "Queued" or "In progress", the Import button is replaced by the Cancel import process button allowing you to cancel the import.
