The client provides the list of designated products, prepared in a correct format, for comparison via Excel or XML files. The prices and availability extracted from the clients website or the feed/XML file, and transferred directly to the dashboard after daily scanning. The data can be updated, imported, deleted, or exported from or to the Dashboard easily by one of the mentioned method.
Vendors MAP prices are taken from the Excel file provided by the vendor respectfully. We recommend to adopt a Google spreadsheet to have new products uploaded, obsolete products deleted, and new prices updated automatically on a daily basis :)
