When updating or inserting, Vendo API will attempt to match an existing product with the product_id, (or an existing category with the category_id etc). If no product_id is found or supplied, a new product is created.

* To update a product, the product_id parameter is required, although its value can be empty. The index, in this case 11, can be used as the product_id if value is empty.For product_id[11] if the product_id of 11 is not in the database a new product is inserted.
** Set stock to no value for no stock limit.
+ In this example a value for product_id is included "1245", if there is an existing product with product_id 1245 it will be updated, if not, a new product is created with product_id 1245

When category_id is empty or not supplied, product is inserted into "none" category.
When category_id is not a number Vendo will attempt to match the name, then url of an existing category to identify the category_id. If not found a new category is created.

The SKU may also be used instead of the product_id. (If there is no existing matching SKU a new product is created).

<form method="post" action="https://.vendo.co.nz/api/products">
 <input type="hidden" name="api_key" value="{YOUR_API_KEY}">
 
 <!-- insert 1 products (name is required) -->
 
 <input type="text" name="sku[11]" value="F1109DE">
 <input type="text" name="name[11]" value="Sports Shoes">
 <input type="text" name="price[11]" value="99.95">
 <input type="text" name="status_id[11]" value="0">
 <input type="text" name="category_id[11]" value="17">
 <input type="text" name="stock[11]" value="">
 
</form>

The index may be blank when only one product is posted.

<form method="post" action="https://.vendo.co.nz/api/products">
 <input type="hidden" name="api_key" value="{YOUR_API_KEY}">
 
 <!-- update 1 product -->
 
 <input type="text" name="sku[]" value="F1109DE">
 <input type="text" name="price[]" value="99.95">
 <input type="text" name="sale_price[]" value="89.00">
 
</form>

The index must be different for each product:

<form method="post" action="https://.vendo.co.nz/api/products">
 <input type="hidden" name="api_key" value="{YOUR_API_KEY}">
 
 <input type="text" name="product_id[1]" value="">
 <input type="text" name="name[1]" value="Sports Shoes">
 <input type="text" name="price[1]" value="99.95">
 
 This is wrong, index 1 already used!
 
 <input type="text" name="product_id[1]" value="">
 <input type="text" name="name[1]" value="Ladies Dress">
 <input type="text" name="price[1]" value="59.95">
 
 This is ok, index xyz and 135 are unique, product_id is 1245 and 1278
 
 <input type="text" name="product_id[xyz]" value="1245">
 <input type="text" name="name[xyz]" value="Ladies Dress">
 <input type="text" name="price[xyz]" value="59.95">
 
 <input type="text" name="product_id[135]" value="1278">
 <input type="text" name="name[135]" value="Ladies Hat">
 <input type="text" name="price[135]" value="29.95">
 
</form>
