    Hi all

    Just wondering if anyone has experiences with using a .csv file upload from suppliers to manage inventory on their store and whether or not you would recommend it? Is it time consuming? How many times do you need to update your files during a typical business day? How do you avoid issues such as someone ordering from you before a file update from supplier, where there might not be any of that item left etc.?
    Is it a feasible mechanism for someone who has a 9-5 job? I would imagine an automatic API datafeed directly from supplier system to the buyers store platform would be far more simpler and superior, but maybe I am wrong!
    Thanks for any info!!

    Have a live file in the cloud that is updated whenever stock levels change, remedies most issues with this method but still need the time to check it obviously :)
