Has there been any progress with bulk uploading of products for sale threw a cvs, xml or some form.
When I had 4 different site builders they all had a little different plan for uploading. You also had a choice of self uploading, threw FTP program and other automatic feeds.

The Images would be uploaded separately the the product information with Brief Description, Long Description, Item Title, Shipping Charges, Item Number, Image Number and Selling Price.

Perhaps your designer, Now That You Have Pro, could put some thing together like this. Even if one you set something like this up you could charge your Pro fee then an additional selling fee of 0.025% of product sale. YOLA has always had a good deal. Something would make YOLA take a giant leap forward.

Papa, I think this would be an excellent addition to the product roadmap for Yola as the product continues to increase in complexity -- and rapidly converge on more eCommerce-oriented services like Shopify and GoodBarry, which I've used in the past.

Both of the services I mentioned permit bulk upload (csv/xls) of product catalogs, but they lack the painless & easy-to-use sitebuilding UI that is Yola's bread and butter.

My hope is that Yola will start zeroing in on some of these advanced content features and try to capture a 'low-hanging' sweet spot of users -- like myself, and probably you -- who fall right inbetween the Yola/Weebly feature set and GoodBarry/Shopify feature set from use-case stand point.

Interested to see how this plays out as I have high hopes of Yola making my life a lot easier :)

This is on our roadmap but it is a little bit behind some other major developments we have planned. Hopefully you will see us start to focus on eCommerce more towards the middle of 2010. At that time we will certainly be considering the feature requests we have received around shopping carts and this one would be a great addition.
