Just a simple question Smiley Happy 

When I manually fetch a new shopping feed, and submit I get the 


Processing... (0 products) 


At what point can I refresh the page? Or is it that I have to wait until processing is complete? 


As it never seems to complete Smiley Happy

Hi, Rob. The best thing to do would be to enable updates following data feed processing and you should receive an e-mail once the processing completes.

As for the web interface, it will refresh automatically once the data is processed. In my case, it's less than 2 minutes, I think, for a 900+ items XML feed.


Sorry, forgot to mention this: once you pressed the button you can leave the page if you want, processing will take place in the background, server-side, irrespective of what the client (browser) does.


Hope it helps.
