How to set up a Cron Import for PrestaShop

Total Import PRO allows you to create automatic imports if your web server supports creating Cron Tasks.

Automatic imports are perfect for automatically keeping your product details such as stock and price up to date, and for importing large files which would normally take a long time to complete when run through the web browser.


Step 1. Create your Import Profile

To run a Cron Task you will need to create an Import Profile which contains the settings for your import. Start from step 1 in Total Import PRO and work through each step until you get to step 5, there you will find a button called "Save Settings Profile" which lets you name your Import Profile.
