Client has insisted that instead of giving a set quantity for the various items on the Expression Engine\Expresso ecommerce store, they would maintain it internally on their mainframe and divulge it to the webfront via CSV streams.
Here is an example of one such permutation of the stream:
^ This is for one product type, not all of them. There are multiple streams which compose all of the products listed on the site itself.
So, on the webfront if the page was on this stream's category and the product specified was "Bazik" the number next to the item would be 279.
I'm at a loss on how to approach this. They won't budge on the issue, so how do I get this to work?
I don't know how to do that and, frankly, I don't have the time to figure it out unfortunately.
This makes good sense.
This is already being handled, however the result would not be in real time (which further muddies the entire point of this).
