My Web Developer requested an import file, can you help?

We offer a seasonal CSV download file that includes all catalog products, descriptions, style codes, style names. This "Style level" spreadsheet can be supplied by Stormtech, to aid your developer with the import of products. There are over 10 000 SKU's in the catalog.

Images may be downloaded at the following URL syntax with the "Style Code" updated for each style:

http://www.stormtech.ca/drop/imagePackage/GTP-1.zip
"GTP-1.zip" is an example, all catalog style images can be downloaded this way by replacing "GTP-1" with the desired style code.

* Please do not link directly to our hosted images on product pages, as these links could be updated at anytime.

Please note the organization, architecture, and maintenance of databases and customizations for various app / website integrations will be best performed directly with your Web Developer or vendor.

Please email info[at]stormtech.ca with the subject line "CSV Import", and we will respond with more information.

For customers with a KAM, please contact your KAM for more information on data feeds and options.



Can the Stormtech Marketing Department help me update my website code or provide custom feeds?

 

Our complete listing of inline products, including descriptions, image links, and colors may be downloaded at the following url.

http://www.stormtech.ca/media/feed/AL_google.xml



Please note the design and implementation of websites & apps utilizing these feeds will be best performed directly with your Web Developer or vendor. If you require a specific category RSS feed that is not shown here, please email us at info[at]stormtech.ca with the subject line "RSS Feed".

 

In general, Stormtech Performance Apparel does not supply customized data feeds for third party website implementations. We recommend working with our industry partners SAGE & ESP, or a professional web design company that can utilize our existing data feeds and tailor these to your specifications.

 

Another tip, is to start your program with a certain subset of products tailored to your audience. This approach is quicker and more efficient than attempting to add all products immediately.

 

For customers with a KAM, please contact your KAM for more information on data feeds and options.

 

Does Stormtech offer data feeds through Promotional Product Industry sites?

Yes, Stormtech also maintains full product and image databases at various promotional product industry organizations. These organizations offer various distributor website solutions and upgrade paths to e-commerce, selected styles, custom forms etc.

Promotional product distributors can contact PPAI/SAGE, ASI/ESP, or PPPC/PROMOCAN at the links below to access services offered from those databases.

*Please allow until Feb 15, 2016 for all SS2016 product feeds to be updated with the SS2016 line update on SAGE, ESP, PROMOCAN database systems.

How do I get live inventory on my website?

Please contact your KAM or sales representative to determine specific options for your business.

 

*Please note, this data will change occasionally and will require ongoing maintenance by your web developer to stay up to date. In the case of any discrepancy, the information found on http://www.stormtech.ca will be deemed correct.

 

In the case that your company does not qualify for live inventory feeds, we reccomend that you publish a link to our distributor websites. The Stormtech Performance Apparel distributor websites provide real-time inventory information for every product we sell. For example, a “Check Inventory” link on your product page would link directly to our corporate website product page (displaying real-time inventory).

 

The direct links to our Distributor websites are as follows:

CAD
http://www.stormtech.ca/distributor/

 

USD
https://www.stormtechusa.com/distributor_usa/

 

EURO
http://www.stormtech.eu/distributor/

Can I use Stormtech's hosted product images directly on my website?

Please download images to your own server whenever possible to avoid broken images in the future. Stormtech website image URL's will change from season to season causing remotely linked images to break. In the case that an image has been linked to a third-party website directly (without being downloaded and moved to your own server first) these images can break when Stormtech publishes seasonal updates. Dynamic RSS/HTML feeds will update images automatically from our servers (see more on RSS/XML feeds).

Stormtech is also able to provide a download package of all images to make it easier for your web developer or vendor to publish them to your server.

How do I show Stormtech video loops in a showroom or trade show display?

You can download and use our showroom video loops at point of sale, or when displaying Stormtech product to customers.
