Dear Magento user,
We are happy to announce that we’ve started a pilot for the new Icecat connector. We have only room for 5 pilot customers.
The price of this pilot including module installation and bug fixing on this module is € 750,-. We give a money-back guarantee if
the pilot fails.
You as a pilot customer are requested to give feedback so we can optimize this module based on the feedback we get.
What will this module contain versus our current Icecat Live! module: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/icecat-live-5311.html
1 - Data will be loaded into the DB, with this you can change the content as you like
2 - It will support native layered navigation of Magento. So all Icecat matched products get the features of Icecat and with this you can filter on these features.
3 - Selective switching on product level between own content and Icecat content presentation
4 - Import of images into the Magento store
5 - Auto rescale images to the correct sizes of your template
If you would like to participate or have questions then please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org topic: Pilot Magento Icecat Connector
Icecat supplies content for your products in your Magento store. You can view the content on http://www.icecat.biz.
Many brands have free content available via Icecat. You can view those here: http://icecat.nl/nl/menu/partners/index.htm
Any datasheet including commercial descriptions and images can be loaded into your Magento shop
Note 1: Expect extra load on your server. The severity of this is still unknown
Note 2: If you have a store with:
- ~50.000 products, a dedicate server is obligatory because the search functionality based on the data like attributes will slow down the system.
Note 3: there are some technical restrictions:
- MySQL should support LOAD DATA in file
- Memory limit (RAM) should be more > 128Mb
- Not any limit for script execution time (i.e. we will be able to manage it)
- Cron support
