BrandsSync 1.0.0 is designed and tested only with Magento 1.9.x.x. Magento 2.0 is NOT yet supported
After having purchased and downloaded BrandsSync plugin package you have to install it via Magento Connect.
From your Magento Admin area go to System -> Magento Connect -> Magento Connect Manager.
From Magento Connect Manager, in the section Direct package file upload choose the plugin
.tgz file you have downloaded and press Upload.
After this, you will have your BrandsSync plugin installed in your Magento.
BrandsSync Extension needs Magento cron to be configured and executed periodically via the operating system cron job management.
In order to set up cron jobs refer to the official Magento setup guide at this Install cron.
We advise to set the cronjob at least every five minutes, this way the plugin will be faster while importing products from supplier.
Installation & Upgrade via File upload
- From your profile download the plugin package
(Note: If you are updating from an older version make sure to uninstall the old version before installing the newer version)

Installation & Upgrade via FTP
If direct package file upload is not available in Magento Connect Manager, you can perform the installation via FTP:

*.tgzfile onto your computer. If you received a
*.zipfile from us, unzip the file, and then unpackage again the

skinfolders to your Magento root folder, which already contains two folders with the same names. In other words, you will be adding new folders and files to those two folders, which already exist.
