    Best cart for working with CSV files

    I have a couple major concerns while looking for which cart to use and the most important is the ability to handle CSV files (importing and exporting products, customer info, etc).

    I plan to refresh my 10,000+ product inventory on a daily basis with new additions, deletions, and updated quantities. Right now, it seems that Zen Cart is the best solution for this, but I was curious if any of you have any other recommendations or comments.

    Thanks so much for your help.

    But Oscommerce doesn't offer the SEO features (such as product names & categories in URLs) that Zen Cart does, correct?

    And I cannot find any documentation in the Oscommerce site that details CSV functionality - could you point me in the right direction?

    @ jimday1982 - I had the same problem with my upcoming eCommerce site, I have thousands of products that need to be updated daily from the suppliers website. I found the best solution for me is to go custom, so I started and it's going great.

    Good luck!
    - Tomer

    Thanks Tomer. I wish I had the funds available to implement a custom solution, but that's just not the case. It appears that we're going to be using the Yahoo Merchant Solutions platform, as they offer everything we need except for the SEO bit, but I'm going to try to tackle that myself. Best of luck to you as well!
