Set where to get the product feed from. Pick one of the available channels - HTTP, FTP, or Email. If you are going to use the first option, pick the method (GET or POST) and paste the URL. You can also add headers and select an authentication method. To check if your connection works fine, click on Test.

Let's move to the Data Mapping section. Start by choosing the file format. Specify the Product Element, i.e. the name of the XML element that wraps product details. Set the SKU and Quantity fields according to the names used in the file from your supplier. You can also add other fields that you would like to update such as Barcode, Compare at Price, Cost Per Item, Price, Title or Weight.

Run your automation

To see how it works, wait for a scheduled action or click Run to update products right away. Then navigate to the Stockeo History section. If you can see 'In progress', please refresh the page. The update time depends on the feed size and the number of products in your store. When the status is 'Success', you can click on Details to check how many and which products have been modified.
