Yes, the module needs to be set up in order to function properly. Follow these 3 steps:
- On the “Export settings” tab of the module, choose in which language and currency you want the XML feed(s) to be generated.
- On the "Cron" tab you will find the links to XML feed generation. For a one-time generation click these links and the feed will be generated (or regenerated, if it already exists). For automating the generation in regular intervals copy the links and set them up in your web hosting to tasks launched by cron (more on setting up cron in the next Q&A)
- On the "XML feed" tab you can download the XML feeds and use the link to create a new export in Mergado.
Simply said, a cron is an automatic task launcher, so, for example, it can launch a generation of an XML feed with the products of your store in regular intervals. Cron is set up on your web hosting. To set up the cron you need to login to your web hosting administration or contact your web host for more information.
