In previous versions, you could already create attributes groups and values (even duplicates values from groups to groups) and bulk associate them to combinations. From version 6, it includes a very powerfull and flexible combinations generator. Powerfull because very fast and not limited in number of variants, it can also create combinations in multiples products at once. Flexible because it does not require (as does PrestaShop) to delete all existing combinations when you have to add new attributes. It can update, duplicate, replace existing variants and add missing ones on top (without creating duplicates). Warning : To activate this generator in PrestaPricing, you must install in your Prestashop, our other module called "Generate and clone combinations"

Such a tool is a must have when working on drop-shipping and having to update massively and regularly the product catalog.

The tools is flexible enough to cope with any file organized in columns. The number, the names and the order of the columns does not matter
News : starting from the version 6, PrestaPricing is also capable of importing the categories. You simply need to have columns containing either their unique name (will search for it in the entire structure and add it under home is not found)) or full (all names from home) or partial (just the direct parent) paths (names of its parent categorie(s))
Warning : This new advanced featured requires that PrestaCategories is also installed and running on the same PC. So this is another good reason to acquire them both as a pack and get benefit of the -15% discount on both.

What is different from Prestashop Backoffice ?
The backoffice is a web application, therefore much slower than a Windows application. For example, with the backoffice, each single change on a combination, requires the entire page to be uploaded again. It is ok if you have lot of time to loose. Not us.
With PrestaPricing, each change is applied instantly, with no wait at all! You can easily navigate from one product to another, swap to another combination, all this on a single click. You can even use the copy-paste between articles.
The backoffice does not propose any tool to modify prices and quantities of many products at once while PrestaPricing permits mass edit on entire columns and includes many bulk modification tools, on numbers, texts, attributes, features,...
Some of its advanced tools, like the import tool or the combinations generator and modifier, have no possible comparison with the native tools of Prestashop. Everything here is defined to make you save time.
I use Excell so far. What are the pro-cons of PrestaPricing ?
PrestaPricing main interface works in real time, connected to the database. Your edits in the tables are immediately taken into account. No need to export/import or even to click on a save button. This is optimum for daily maintenance.
The native import feature of PrestaShop is very limited. It rapidly crashes above 500 products, while PrestaPricing import can cope with any number of lines (current record is 340 000 products created in one import session, from the same file).
Prestashop import is also much slower and risky. With PrestaPricing, you have full control and visibility on what to import and how.
Works on all servers?
No need to have a direct (also called "external") access to the MySQL database.
No need to open the server's port 3306.
No need to use the SSH protocol (rarely proposed as server option).
No need to install any pluggin on the server.
The only exception: PrestaBox solution, as Prestashop has blocked the ftp acces on this platform.
