Product Requirements

 

The module was presented with several requirements:

• Rate of filling  

 

The module should work as fast as possible. First, the client always wants to see the result "here and now", and even better "yesterday". And that's right! We provide access to the demo import module so that the client can evaluate how it works and, if necessary, immediately determine which revisions are required.

 

Secondly, if there are a lot of goods and their combinations, downloading data may take a long time. Especially long time is the loading of a photo, because each product can have dozens of photos, several combinations (trade offers) in different colors, each, respectively, also a few photos, plus each photo must have several sizes for correct display on the site. However, constant changes to the site and lowering the speed of the site through import is undesirable.

 

• Resilience to change

 

The module must be maximally resistant to changes in the site itself. PrestaShop does not stand still - new versions, new extensions appear regularly. Also, the site may be in the process of refining by the designer and web programmer (up to the fact that some pages are not available at the moment).

 

Conclusion

 

The program has the necessary functionality to work with the import of a huge amount of data - and if you have a special case and the functionality of the standard version is not enough - we can always discuss the possibility of both free and paid upgrades.
