If you manage stock in an external system, or just need to do frequent stock updates on a number of products, you know what a pain it can be. My Quick Quantity Update mod helps a bit, but it's still a time consuming process.

CSV Stock Update allows you to easily update the stock count for multiple products using a spreadsheet.

Just create a CSV with the two columns products_id and products_quantity. You can create this in a plain text editor. If you prefer to use Excel, just export to CSV with no headers.

Installation Instructions:

Before starting, back up everything! Try this in a test environment prior to installing it on a live shop.
  1. Go to Admin > Tools > Install SQL Patches and run the included SQL file.
  2. Upload the files in the admin folder to the admin folder in your store.
  3. Refresh your admin page; you can now run Admin > Catalog > CSV Stock Update.
