I'm trying to work out how to create a downloadable CSV file that contains fields for Product SKU, Quantity (should be set to 5 if more than 5 in stock) and Price in Magento 1.x. Price in this instance is in a custom attribute called ChannelPrice and not the Magento attribute Price. This CSV will be produced every 5 minutes or so using a Cron. I'm not a PHP wizard unfortunately, so I am not sure where to start here - be it via some sort of API, or directly via the database. Any things I need to consider or help will be most gratefully received! Many thanks in advance. Andrew

  • Please specify magento version? – Amit Bera Jun 5 '19 at 10:53

This should set you on the right path. You'll need to adjust the collection to get products with a quantity of more than 5 though. Save this as a php file and then call it with a cron job every 5 minutes.

// output headers so that the file is downloaded rather than displayed
header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8');
//header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=report.csv');
// Load the Magento core
require_once 'app/Mage.php';
$store_id = '1';

$userModel = Mage::getModel('admin/user');

// output the column headings
echo "'sku', 'price', 'stock'";
echo "\n";

// Load the product collection
$products = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')
//$products ->getSelect()->limit(20);

foreach ($products as $product) {
        //$price=Mage::helper('core')->currency($product->getPrice(), true, false), //." ".$currencyCode;
    $price = Mage::helper('tax')->getPrice($product, $product->getPrice(), true)*1.2;
    echo $sku . ",";
    echo $price . ",";
    echo $qty . "\n";

  • Thanks for this. I've had a play around with the code and got everything working how I would like apart from one aspect. I want to be able to get the value of a custom attribute storing a price rather than the Magento default price attribute. I'm not sure how to go about that as there are no predefined get/set methods for individual custom attributes, unlike the default attributes Magento provides and has get/set methods for. If you had any suggestions on where I need to be looking for this I'd be most grateful. – AtotheK Jun 7 '19 at 11:21
  • Add your attribute label to the addAttributeToSelect array and then you should be able to use $product->getYourAttribute(); where YourAttribute is your attribute label. – Denial Design Jun 7 '19 at 21:45
