Publish product catalog to WordPress or similar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm setting up our CRM Online 2016 with about 50 products, and plan to use families and products with a multi- level hierarchy to create quotes.  I want to use a simple, low-cost website platform like WordPress, and be able to publish the CRM products to a simple online store/catalog - initially for display only; no ordering, shopping carts, shipping, users, etc.  But of course I'd like a nice seamless (ha) integration that would automatically sync CRM product changes and additions to the WordPress store/catalog, or at least allow simple (automated) export/import. 

    I would really appreciate any advice on the best website and online store platform for this.  I'm experienced with data management and have worked a lot with Salesforce, a little bit with WordPress with the Shopp add-in, a little bit with CRM 2012, a little bit with Visual Studio, a lot with SQL Server... so I have the sense that this shouldn't be real hard, but I don't want to build a custom solution, and a lot of searching hasn't turned up much.  Adxstudio Portals looks good as a longer-term solution, but is way beyond what we need and can afford now.  WooCommerce seems good and is broadly used on WordPress, but I can't find anything clear about CRM product catalog integration.   Suggestions, please! Thanks for your help.

  • Hi Rick,

      for WooCommerce (and I did not do it myself.. but I was looking into those same options), it seems that wp-allimport might work:


      They have options for cron, so you can schedule the imports. You still need to upload your product catalogue to wordpress, so you'll need to extract it and upload the file.. You can do it manually. Or you can use a tool - then you can schedule daily updates (or they could be more frequent, if you want them to be). If interested in "beta testing", let me know, and I'll get you a tool for that:) If not, you might consider SSIS or something similar for data extraction/uploads.

  • Hi Alex -

    Thanks - that looks good.  I'll take a closer look later.  But that increases my confidence that we can go ahead with WordPress and WooCommerce, which is what I needed!

    thanks -
