What is Hardware. info?

Hardware. info is an informational website and hardware price comparison tool for consumers. Since the product data parameters in this platform and Magento 2 are fully compatible, store’ s admin can apply these parameters to their product data, which generates Product Feed. For the reason that Magento 2 now does not support feed generating, we need to use the added Product Feed extension by Mageplaza.
