Export Product Store Data to CSV

Exporting product store data to CSV allows automatic export of product store data from Quant to the FTPS server. Through this export, a CSV file with selected products at selected stores can be exported on a regular basis, along with additional product information such as primary product ID, store ID, basic sales price, stock, etc.

1.  FTPS Setting

First, you can create a folder on FTPS into which a CSV file will be uploaded e.g. export_product_store_data. However, if you set up the export correctly, the folder will be created on the FTP site automatically under the name you fill in the settings in the Primary Server Path property.

2. Automatic Task Settings

In Automatic Tasks, create a new automatic task Export Product Store Data to CSV.
