Standalone PrestaShop integration with wholesalers
prestashow.pl is the only official manufacturer and distributor of the module.
We designed the module in such a way that you can independently integrate your store with wholesalers, suppliers and your own XML and CSV feeds. Connecting another wholesaler can even take a few moments. Select the data you want to transfer and run the import. The module will connect for you with local and remote product feeds in XML and CSV files. You can modify the settings of each feed at any time: add, omit and modify data from the feed before it reaches the store.
Enjoy the flow of information between the wholesaler and your PrestaShop store
Flexibility and speed
The module will not limit your creativity in importing assortments. You can indicate the data to import and rely on full automation or perform advanced operations on the data. PShowImproter allows you to import selected manufacturers, map and skip categories, convert exchange rates, calculate markup, combine and edit product information, import conditions for arbitrary values, multi-store, multi-warehouse, import attributes and generate combinations, search and replace data and much more....
Product catalog order
The module assigns wholesalers to imported products, which ensures order in your data, no duplicates and selection of the best offer. The importer allows you to integrate the same file several times, i.e. a complete import in the first place, followed by a repeat operation, e.g. to update only prices and stock levels. You can also import the same product from multiple suppliers, or skip importing selected products if you don't want to have them in your offer.
An importer you can customize to fit any need
We guarantee that after an hour spent with the module you will be importing and updating data in your store on your own. As you use it, the module will reveal many functionalities that will allow you to manage your product catalog more efficiently than before.

Integration with wholesalers in 5 steps
Once a file is configured with the help of our import manager, it starts updating data in your store. You can edit, duplicate or disable each configuration at any time. Don't worry about the effects of the operations performed - the module's work log will inform you about correctly performed 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 then 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 and adding new and disabling unavailable products. In this step you will also adjust the import language, multistore store and other global settings.
- Configure data. Decide which data from the file you want to transfer to the store, and then customize, skip or use the default settings.
- Personalize import. In this step you will access 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. With the module, you can run imports and updates without contact using CRON, SSH and multi-file queuing.

Work with multiple wholesalers
Integration with multiple wholesalers can trigger duplication of products that are available in several wholesalers at the same time. A module from PrestaShow solves this problem.
The importer from PrestaShow allows you to assign products to a specific wholesaler. The effect you get is that there are no overwrites and duplications. Your assortment starts to be updated, for example, by wholesalers that offer the product at the lowest price, or goes to independent warehouses if you use PrestaShop's Advanced Warehouse module.
With the importer from PrestaShow, a single import configuration replaces many manual operations. In this way, you personalize your assortment, save time and don't burden the server.
File queuing - the way to import
You can configure an independent CRON for each feed, or you can use a single CRON for the entire file queue.
If you integrate with multiple wholesalers, the module introduces the convenience of queuing files for import. Add files to the queue. The files you configure, import one by one, according to the settings for each file. This allows you to integrate and update data with multiple wholesalers without involving you in the process.
You will import all product information into PrestaShop
The import and update mode includes all product catalog and category data, which you can automate to complete and update with our module. Start working conveniently with features such as:
Markup support for all types of prices. You can import net, gross, unit, specific and purchase price. For each price, you can set a markup with price ranges, for example: for a net price of 10-15 PLN, charge 10%, and for 15-50 PLN, 4% markup. To perform more interesting and automating operations on prices, check out the Price Master module - intelligent price management.
Support for international sales. Importin multiple languages, different currencies and to different warehouses.
Supplier support. Import and update the same item from multiple suppliers. With the importer from PrestaShow you will use all the possibilities available in PrestaShop;
Specific pricing. Automate adding and updating specific prices. PShowImporter allows you to transfer all fields related to Specific Pricing;
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 there missing data in your XML and CSV files? 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 it were in the imported XML or CSV feed.
The module provides the freedom to modify the files. You can combine multiple fields into one, e.g. "Manufacturer + Name + Feature: Color" = "Product Name ". You can use the "Search and Replace" option, which will allow you to replace any phrases with ones that you can better use, for example, in positioning or branding your brand.
Control over performance
The specifics of your infrastructure will be fully utilized. The module exploits the potential and RAM of multiprocessor servers, thus handling small and very large XML files.
PShowImporter works with FTP and VPS servers, dedicated machines and data clouds (Google Cloud, Azure, AWS). Server performance improves the speed of data import and update. Refer to the REQUIREMENTS tab for the necessary configuration of the hosting on which you want to run our module.
Change control - importer work log
The module resolves anomalies during integration on an ongoing basis. The technologies we used recognize and fix errors that appear in XML and CSV feeds.
During the import, a complete log is created, which shows the operations performed, errors detected, or products omitted.
The importer's work log records all actions performed by the module. It also informs about the occurrence of errors and omissions during integration. The log is generated each time you run an import or update. You can view it during import, in the module or as a txt file on the server.
CRON and SSH
The module handles data imports and updates, relieving you of the need to manually run and supervise 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 integration with multiple wholesalers, you can set up files in a queue. 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 will export products from PrestaShop to XML files, and then carry out the import using the Import Manager.
Instant integration between two PrestaShop stores
Import Manager works fully with Feeder module to provide instant two-way integration of PrestaShop 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 stores.
PrestaShop integration with wholesaler APIs
PShowImporter features PrestaShop integration with wholesaler API. If your wholesaler only makes products available via API, we can prepare a call that will transfer products from API to PShowImporter, which will import them according to your settings into PrestaShop.
In order for us to quote for API integration prepare:
- API documentation of the wholesaler (the wholesaler should provide it, e.g. in PDF format)
- Access to the API test account
Then write us an email - you can use the Contact Us 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 store's 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 through 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 necessary for the module to function properly.
Advanced Inventory Support
Advanced Stocks is a standard feature of PrestaShop 1.6, which 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. AdvancedStocks will also allow you to interact with your customers in new ways, such as displaying product availability at stationary stores or pick-up 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 warehouses is essential for the proper functioning of the Importer Module.
You can purchase support for importing to AdvancedStocks right away with the Importer or at any future time.
PrestaShop modifications to support integration with wholesalers
In the module's settings, you can enable features unavailable in PrestaShop that will help you conveniently integrate with any wholesaler and supplier:
- Combination price is the total price of the product (and not the impact 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 stock is up-to-date
- Automatic Technical Break during importer operation
