How to Set Up Scheduled Import in File2Cart?

Timely update is vital for smooth performance of your store. Product information is constantly changing, that’s why you need to update item assortment and availability, prices, categories and on and on.

If you have a lot of entities, it is a very laborious process to update each of them manually. File2Cart, in turn, offers you Scheduled Data Import.
