Integration with warehouses in 5 steps
Once a file is configured with our import manager, it starts updating data in your store. Each configuration can be edited, duplicated or disabled at any time. Don't worry about the effects of performed operations - the module's work log will inform you about successful imports or the occurrence of errors. The module will guide you through the process of adding, configuring and importing data in 5 steps:
- List your integrations. Add and manage XML and CSV product feeds from your suppliers.
- Assign tasks. Define what operations you want the module to perform. Its tasks include importing, updating, adding new products and deactivating unavailable products. In this step you will also adjust import language, multistore and other global settings.
- Configure data. Decide which data from the file you want to transfer to the store, and then adjust them to your needs, omit them or use the default settings.
- Personalize Import. In this step, you'll gain access to advanced settings. Skip manufacturers, map categories, set import conditions, and add, search, and change data.
- Finalize integration. Start the import manually or fully automatically. You can stop the process at any time and return to it later. You can use the module to run imports and updates using CRON, SSH and multi-file queuing.

Work with multiple wholesalers
Integrating with multiple wholesalers can result in duplicate products that are available from multiple wholesalers simultaneously. A module from PrestaShow solves this problem.
You can configure an independent CRON for each feed.
The PrestaShow importer allows you to assign products to a specific wholesaler. The effect you get is no overwriting or duplication. Your assortment starts to be updated by e.g. wholesalers who offer the product at the lowest price.
You can also use importing specific suppliers, thanks to which you will keep order while integrating with many wholesalers.
Queuing files - a way to import
The module introduces the convenience of queuing files for import. Files configured by you, are imported one by one, according to settings for each of them. This allows you to integrate and update data with multiple warehouses without involving you in the process.
With Import from PrestaShow, you configure one import that replaces many manual operations. This way, you personalize your assortment, save time, and don't burden your server.
Import all product information into PrestaShop
The import and update mode includes all the product catalog and category data, which you can automate with our module. Start working conveniently with features such as:
Markup support for all price types. You can import net, gross, unit, specific and purchase price. For each price, you can set a markup with price ranges, e.g.: for net price 10-15 PLN charge 10% and for 15-50 PLN charge 4% markup. To perform more interesting and automating operations on prices, check out the Price Mastermodule - intelligent price management.
Supplier support. Import and update the same item from multiple suppliers. With the PrestaShow importer you will be able to take advantage of all the features available in PrestaShop;
Specific pricing. Automate adding and updating specific prices. PShowImporter allows you to transfer all fields related to Specific Prices;
Features, Attributes, and Combination Generation. Generate combinations based on the attributes in the file. The Importer will do this automatically. You do not need to use additional modules and combination generator for this purpose.
Fill in the missing data
Are your XML and CSV files missing data? With the module, imported or updated products can be supplemented with manually added values.
For example, create a field with the content "SONY" and adjust it as "Manufacturer Name" or "Feature: Manufacturer". The importer will add the above information to all products as if they were in the imported XML or CSV feed.
The module gives you the freedom to modify your files. You can combine multiple fields into one, e.g. "Manufacturer + Name + Trait: Color" = "Product Name ". You can use the "Search and Replace" option, which will allow you to replace any phrases with those that will be better used for e.g. positioning or marking your brand.
Efficiency and time saving
The module solves irregularities during integration on the fly. Technologies that we have used, recognize and fix for you errors that appear in XML and CSV feeds.
The specifics of your infrastructure will be fully utilized. The module exploits the potential and RAM of multiprocessor servers, thus supporting small and very large XML files.
PShowImporter works with FTP and VPS servers, dedicated machines and data clouds (Google Cloud, Azure, AWS). Leverage the capabilities of your infrastructure. Server performance is enhanced by the speed of data import and update. Read the REQUIREMENTS tab to learn about the necessary configuration of the hosting on which you want to run our module.
CRON and SSH
The module handles the data import and update, relieving you from having to manually run and supervise the imports. PShowImprorter will perform the scheduled operations on a fixed day and time. Each configured file can receive its own direct CRON import link.
For example, if you are performing an integration with multiple wholesalers, you can queue the files. With the queue, they will run one by one, and you can run only one link responsible for the queue in the CRON configuration.
Other sales platforms
If you want to integrate with product catalogs from another store or migrate another PrestaShop store to your PrestaShop store, you can use Feeder. With the Feeder module you can export products from PrestaShop to XML files and then import them using the Import Manager.
Instant integration between two PrestaShop stores
Import Manager fully integrates with Feeder module to provide instant two-way integration between PrestaShop 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 stores.
PrestaShop Integration with Wholesale API
PShowImporter has a feature to integrate PrestaShop with wholesaler APIs. If your wholesaler only provides products through the API, we can prepare a connection that will pass the products from the API to PShowImporter, which will import them according to your settings into PrestaShop.
In order for us to quote for API integration please prepare:
- API documentation of the wholesaler (the wholesaler should provide it e.g. in PDF format)
- Access to the test API account
Then write us an email - you can use the Contact tab.
PrestaShop Multistore is a single admin panel for multiple stores. Multistore is a standard feature of PrestaShop 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 and you can enable it in your admin panel.
Using our module you can import and update products in multiple Multistore stores. The importer will allow you to perform operations on all or selected stores.
Multistore support by the Importer module is optional and extra paid. Depending on your needs, you can buy Importer with Multistore support right away or buy it later, at any time.
Note: If Multistore is enabled in your store, Multistore support is required for the module to function properly.
Advanced Stock Support
Advanced Stock is a standard PrestaShop 1.6 feature that you can enable in your store settings.
PrestaShop developers removed the Advanced Stores feature in PrestaShop 1.7, so we at PrestaShow created the Advanced Stores module for PrestaShop 1.7. PShowAdvancedStocks functionality allows you to manage a warehouse or multiple warehouses in great detail: movements, coverage, replenishment. Advanced Stores will also allow you to interact with your customers in a new way, for example by displaying product availability in stationary stores or pickup points on the product page.
If you are using the default Advanced Stores in your PS 1.6 store, or if you are using our PShowAdvancedStocks module in PS 1.7, an add-on that supports importing to multiple stores is essential for the proper functioning of the Importer Module.
You can purchase support for importing to Advanced Stores right away with the importer or at any future time.
Import Workflow Log
Organize data and review file errors. The Importer log records all actions taken by the module. It also reports errors and omissions during the integration. The log is generated each time you run an import or update. You can view it during import or as a txt file on the server.
Free PrestaShop Modifications
In the module settings you can enable features not available in PrestaShop that will help you conveniently integrate with each wholesaler and supplier:
- The combination price is the total price of the product (and not an influence on the product price)
- Additional field "Combination description" - the customer after changing the combination sees its individual description.
- Additional fields "Combination dimensions: length, width, depth, weight"
- Show update date on product page - use the date to assure customers that inventory is up to date
- Automatic Technical Break during import
