Default Product Comparison and Category Creation

Just wondering, is there an automatic way of creating product comparison's? Like you just pick the product, and your merchants, and if the product exists on both merchants have it be a product comparison? Seems very unnecessary and tedious to have too manually create each one, unless I am not understanding how it's done and it is automatic.

In the age of SKU's this shouldn't be to hard. If it can't be done that way though, is there a way I can hook into Datafeedr's code per say, and make that work?

Also why can't we just do "all products in this merchant's category of CATEGORY NAME, should be under my category called CATEGORY NAME." instead of having to do a search, and saving the search?

Hi,

Welcome to the forums!

Currently it's not possible to create comparison sets automatically.

The reason you can't import all products from a merchant's category of category name is by design. If this was a feature then everyone would be creating stores that were the same as everyone else's. Our method will ensure that the content on your site is unique.

Thanks and I see, interesting. I would still myself mix categories, etc to make it unique, but I get where your coming from. You guy's have an API to, so the first and second item I want could be possible through that. I may just have a cron job import daily from the API, and tweak things while it is doing it. Anywho thanks for the info this looks like an amazing service!

Hi,

I'm not sure if it will help as it doesn't have a comparison set functionality but you might be interested in this as it does integrate with the API. (Good to mention before you go writing any code of your own.)
