Hi,
I suggest a UI which will help to import products from Vendors with many categories.
Usually vendor's categories are different from the shop's categories.
Such function will make the import very easy.

Thank you

Hi,
maybe some User Interface like mapping XML fields on Magento Manager.
Two parts of the screen on the left - vendor's categories on the right shop's categories.
And drag&drop or drop down to select where vendor's categories to go on the shop.

Thank you

Or on the right part (shop's categories) categories tree like on magento admin with checkbox and possibility to select few categories (one vendor's category to goes to few magento categories).

Please provide us with example of the file and explain how it should looks during import to allow you to select exact values, so we could check the possibility of custom development.

Now I am using an external script to import XML, CSV files, which read the data and is with integrated function for categories mapping. I have over 30 vendors and some of them are with 50-60 categories so the CASE function is not easy to use. I attached how the categories mapping looks in admin. So I am sure that if you enable this function the import of products will be really useful function.

Hello,
We need this feature +1 for us.
We're running a big store with over 15 vendors and planning to use your automatic import feature to handle it.
Each Vendor has a different category structure, it's a MUST for your big customers.

We're considering to purchase your Enterprise plan with icecat and all other addons.

But, we might not do it without this feature.

Thank you.

Please don't forget to vote for this feature.

About our plans:
Right now we are working on Magento Import orders. This option will be available in Enterprise Edition only.
After that we'll try to present New version of Store Manager with Magento 2 support.

It's reasonable to return to this question after those tasks.

Please update this subject after January 2016.

Hello Teodor!
How about to meet online and discuss your suggestion in details.
I"ll be honest - our major task for us is Magento 2 support for Store Manager.
It's reasonable to return to this feature after Magento 2 support Release.
Current Beta of Store Manager will be available in 1 week of less.
Please let me know - when ready - I'll reach you via email. I know your email :-) this is public post, so you don't need it

eMagicone team,
As a new version with the "order import feature" is released a week ago, hope we can expect this feature to be implemented soon :-)
Don't wanna be a pain but this feature is so important for us that keeps us monitoring this page for updates.

The idea is, we should have an additional step in "auto import" wizard to list all categories being used in the vendor's datafeed file and have an option to map those categories with our own store categories, This way, the vendor categories will be mapped with ours, so Mag Manager will put the vendor's new/existing products into the proper category.

Hussein

Hello Hussein!
Right now we are working on Magento 2 compatibility support - see Roadmap - https://www.mag-manager.com/store-manager-for-magento-roadmap/
It's so early to discuss the ability of implementation.
From the start of this suggestion, since Nov 2015 we've got 1 vote only. :-(
It seems you are the only one person who wants to implement this option.

We are waiting for comments and votes for this suggestion.

Can you tell me how to import products from vendor with 100 categories? Or your solution is only CASE...

Alex Pryshlivskiy agent wrote
ok, may be you are right. Please re-open this comment after Magento support 2 Release - I'll try to refresh this task.
But, small comment from my side.
let's imagine, that such feature will be implemented.
You have 1000 vendors.
In this case you need to do mapping all vendors for this. :-(

As a quick decision - you'll be able to use special attribute - and to add vendor info there.
Use filter column to filter special vendor for mapping. see screenshot -
I understand, that it's manual work in this case but you'll be able to control mapping process.

Hello.
I will re open the case.
I have 200 vendors and almost every one is with 20-100 categories.
Your suggestion is OK if the vendor is with only one category.

Thank you

It's clear for me Teodor, it was a quick solving of this task.

In your case you need to do manual mapping.

But one more question:
let's suggest - this option "Categories mapping from Vendors" will be implemented.

What should you do if every new file will be changed ( by order, by tital etc.) in this case you need to re-map vendors again and again.

Any ideas how to automate this job without manual work ?

Hello Sergiy,
usually each vendor has one format of the XML file and this file is always the same.
At the moment I am using an extension with this function but I think that this is a must have for Magento Store manager.
You can see the attached file how it is look.
