I am a "Newbie". I have a site written with the free version. The manual import works fine (after reindexing). I want to automate that process to run every night. How? Thanks, Randy

More info: the manual import/reindex in the Magento control panel works fine for my purpose. However, I need some way of automating that process for a unattended nightly import of some 6000 products. Our website was written by a developing firm that recently left us with an uncompleted web. We are trying to finish up on our own.

Thanks, Randy

You will need to understand this article about importing products programatically and then make it work with a CSV and a cronjob.

Without medium/high knowledge of the platform this will cost you some time, so as an advice from a business/time perspective, hire someone who can do this (this is not the correct place for hiring people).
