Hi! I have searched extensively for some documentation for the API to be able to automatically import things, and I have found most of what I need, but... how do you actually call the API to IMPORT a file, (preferrably a .csv) - say tracking numbers for example. - if I have a tracking csv file, how can I trigger it to automatically import via the API?
Tracking file has the proper/required V columns. Importing manually through the admin works good, but I want to do this automatically.

thanks!

The API allows importing of XML data only. If you must use a CSV then you will have to use the admin area to do so.

You mentioned tracking #'s so here you go...

You will have to make a POST request to the API with the required XML data. Not a particularly big deal.

Thanks, I can easily convert my file to XML format., just not sure how to call the POST request and call the xml file from it's location? (I jsut want to do this like once a day at the end of the day.)

If you already have a CSV then your easiest method would be to following the instructions here...
