Export XML feeds

About cron settings, it is necessary to log in to the administration of your web hosting and find the cron settings there, or contact your web host for more information. 

More about cron in our article

On the Cron page, start the generation with the Manually generate feed button. Then go to the XML feeds page and rerun the feed generation with the Manually generate feed button until the XML feed link is active.

Gradual regeneration of exports brings important improvements in their creation. With a large amount of data, problems arose and in some cases the whole process ended in failure. Our Mergado Pack therefore offers the option of choosing the number of products that will be generated in one step. And thanks to the limit, only the number of items that the user chooses is subsequently created. This speeds up the process, stabilizes it and reduces the risk of it falling

In practice, this means that the feed is generated in partial files, which are merged after this process and create a complete XML feed.
