    Hi All

    My client has an e-commerce website http://www.saveenergytechnologies.com.au
    built in Joomla + Virtuemart.

    I want to start advertising in getprice.com.au and myshopping.com.au. They want me to upload a data feed in xml format to advertise.

    I tried searching in Joomla and VirtueMart but was unable to find how to create a xml data feed. I am not an expert in Joomla and I have tried reading forums but was not able to find anything relevant.

    If anyone can suggest some answers to this problem it will help me a lot.

    Regards
    Reheen

    Isn’t Virtuemart’s RSS feed already in XML?

    Hi Reheen,

    I’ve seen extensions for Virtuemart to export products to xml for Google Base so if the standard RSS feed won’t work there may be an extension created for it.

    If you can’t find anything suitable, I specialise in php/mysql projects like this and could easily make a script to generate an xml file in the format you require.

    Let me know if you need some help.

    Did you find the information page at Getprice – http://www.getprice.com.au/feeds-spec.htm.

    You can provide Txt, CSV or XML.

    You could also just do a CSV file and use a CSV to XML converter there are lots available.

    I would guess that the products that you are using have a CSV product export capability. If so them you just need to reorgainse and add maybe a few extra fields and then convert to XML.
