    Hi william_bronson!

    Thanks for the link, it will be a good future resource, I am hoping to get Joe's Input, because he runs a hosting company and will let me know if running this Cron job every 5 minutes will be hard on the server or require bandwidth.

    He is the resident database / server genius!

    But since i have never done a Cron Job before the link may com in handy! :slight_smile:

    Hey @MTB1701

    I will make sure Joe gets this one :slight_smile:

    From my understanding, this would depend on how big the inventory is. 1000's of products updating every 5 minutes, that would be trouble.

    At a point like that, it would be ideal just to update only the ones that have been modified / added / updated.

    For a few hundred products, this won't be a problem at all I would say. On a decent server, I mean.

    Lets hear it from almighty, Joe!
