It is a module called DataKick, it is made for exporting data in your shop to XML format. If you use a CRM, inventory system, or Google Shopping this module could be invaluable to you. The module even has a free version, you can checkout the DataKick module here.
What all does it do?
The module will let you export any information in your shop out in XML format. It is very powerful in its export abilities, letting you export customers, addresses, orders, product data, and more. It will even let you export the data with different conditions applied. Here are some of the uses we have found for the module:
- Exporting data to Google Shopping
- Exporting customers and orders to a CRM
- Exporting customers to a mailing list
- Exporting orders to QuickBooks or other accounting software
- Exporting data to populate a new site
- Exporting feeds to shopping sites
- Exporting orders to mailing label programs
- Exporting data to add networks
- and many more uses
The DataKick module also has a powerful scheduler built in as well. You can schedule exports so your 3rd party sites or CRM can grab the files and import them automatically. This saves time and also streamlines your process freeing you as a shop owner up to focus on other tasks.
The DataKick module is a great addition to our eco-system and greatly expands the capability of merchant’s shops by automating data needs and also arranging custom exports for mailing list and CRMs. You can get the Datakick module here and start using it today.
Because the DataKick module is powerful, it can be difficult to use. One of the toughest things about developing a powerful solution is to keep the power and make it easy for all users to use. DataKick does a great job with this by adding in over 20 pre-made templates. For common services such as Facebook, Google Shopping, PriceRunner, Heureka, and a few more, there are pre-made templates you can install directly from the module. That way the configuration is minimal and you can get to exporting without having to figure out how to make custom templates. To access the pre-made templates simply click the XML Template button at the top of the module, on the next screen you will be given the option to view the pre-made templates so you can install the one you need.
