The ICECat database is an invaluable resource for webmasters who have to deal with very large catalogues. They offer a single source with a normalised structure for getting high quality images, descriptions and even PDF files about the products you sell.
They have developed relationships with a large number of manufacturers and brands which allow them to offer these details free of charge. If however you want better coverage they also offer a very reasonably priced service which is comparable to the CNET system but at a much reduced price.
Edmonds Commerce have the resources to implement a proper XML integration with the ICECat system for your ecommerce store. We especially specialse in the highly popular open source ecommerce platforms osCommerce and Magento.
