Adding an e-shop with the product feed

XML is a universal markup language, which is used for the presentation of data on a website in a structured manner. The proper configuration of an XML file and its implementation with SALESmanago is necessary to use certain features of the system.

It is crucial that you verify the data in the XML file before you send it for verification. After the XML is verified, the SALESmanago IT Department prepares an XML file transform (a special processing of the file that makes it possible to display its data). This means, that each time an XML file changes, a new transform has to be created.

In SALESmanago, every XML file can have only one transform assigned, it is not possible to edit either element. If there is an XML file uploaded to the system together with a transform, then making any changes to them is not possible.

IMPORTANT: When you prepare an XML file, remember to use dots in product prices (both regular and discount prices), e.g. 79.99, 45.99, 100.00. The prices CANNOT contain commas.
