I have two child magento websites and one master website, Now I would like to synchronize child sites when something happens to master, For example: When a product is added or a price change - sync to other two child websites. (i.e.) All/Custom admin activities are synchronized between Master and child magento websites.

Note: These Magento stores are not configured like Multi-stores and these are installed separately on different domains.


As you are not using Multi-stores functionally that it become too different to track each of event of one store and then transfer to master website.

Suppose,You will try to like soap api,rest api, Event/observer and other customization.

Then it would create hug perform issue between two website as every time,data will synchronize between site.

In my point view,it is not possible to track each website event for each times.

So you cannot do a complete synchronize child sites with master.

My suggest to use multi store

  • Hello Amit, I would like to go with multistore, however If the two child site has some individual functionality or may be different from one another, then shall I use each of them as separate theme package and configure them based on that.. I just thought of this.. will this work ? – Dev Oct 13 '15 at 11:49

This is possible, you need your master to have a catalog json/xml output then compare the update time (foreach) product (on master) with the data from the child sites and only save/update child site data if update time is different.

What you need - PHP code to read each item in json/xml - If ID matches, compare update time - If master update time newer, update child product - CRON job pointing to PHP file

If done this in the past with an external json API to update my magento collection data

  • Here is an API i am working on github.com/SeakEcommerce/Sync2Mage – BENN1TH Oct 13 '15 at 10:05
  • Will this sync automatically when the changes were made? – Dev Oct 13 '15 at 10:10
  • no its just a work in progress project at the moment and I have to update the code, but once I have you can access product list in json or xml. Will let you know once I update the repo. – BENN1TH Oct 13 '15 at 11:21
