Cron Job in Product Importer Deluxe?
Is it possible to include a Cron Job i Product Importer Deluxe. It would be nice to have it all automated. Because at this point I have to download the product feed manually and upload it to Product Importer Deluxe also manually.
With a Cron Job I could point Product Importer Deluxe to the address of my site ex: hxxp://mysite.com/wp-content/feeds/all.csv and let the Cron Job automatically download the CSV file from an affiliate network?
I found a guide on how to setup a Cron Job: http://www.affiliatetuts.com/datafeeds/automating-datafeed-imports-using-cron-jobs/
The only thing I'm missing is an extra box at the import products in the Upload section which I can point to an address of my choice as explained earlier.
Thanks in advance

Easy enough to do in WPAI.
For people with shared / capped hosting, limiting their PHP timeout and/or memory... Currently we have to manually load in split parts, using a third party CSV splitter application. For large customer database, this can take some time and is grunt work waiting on. It would be nice to automatically do this via Cronjobs. Place the CSV file(s) on FTP under a folder. A very small import done every so often, clean up, then repeat the next chunk. The only issue would be confirming and fail safe (abort/skip) if something does go wrong with the import. Then a report of how it went at the end, perhaps via email or file placed in the same folder?
