Merge Product changes with Product Importer Deluxe

The title says it all, 2.0 of Product Importer Deluxe brings support for merging bulk changes to existing Products by updating your original product catalogue file.

What this means for store owners is simple, you can now maintain the Products in your store through Excel or other CSV-compatible text editors by uploading the initial product catalogue file to populate your WP e-Commerce store then as changes are required re-upload the same file to refresh your store. Here’s an example where the Price and Sale Price of several Products have been updated.

I’m now working on adding sub-category support and multiple Product Group support for 2.1 as it’s long overdue, then there’s variations…
