I am not clear on how the importing function is meant to work.
Does the software import the csv file directly into the server and add/create new items?
Or does the import process merely import the csv file back into the store/categories & products page of the emagicone software?
I was of the opinion I could make changes to my products within the emagicone software, export that into a csv file and then import it into the server via the emagicone software thereby replacing the x-cart import screen.

That concept will not work for me but I am not clear if the emagicone software is supposed to replace the x-cart import screen and import direcly to the server where the website resides.

Dear David,

Thank you for your question.
Store Manager for X-Cart allows you to import your product data directly to your on-line store. You just need to prepare your .csv file, import it in Store Manager and preview all the changes at your on-line store.

Please, check our free trial version: http://www.xcart-manager.com/download
And here is documentation guide on how to perform import in Store Manger for X-Cart: http://store-manager-for-x-cart-documentation.emagicone.com/products-management/import-products
Please, contact us once again, if any questions occur!

OK, that is very good.

When you say preview the changes at the on-line store I assume you mean just to check the on-line store if I choose to do so. The import process brings the data into the x-cart store manager and the on-line store at the same time. Once I Import the revised data from the csv file is live on the website if the import process was done correctly.
