Updating product prices in magento in easier faster way

Product prices can be updated via default import profile though but this is very slow and requires lots of csv fields(besides sku & price) for updating.
Today i am going to talk about updating product prices just by using csv with two fields: sku & price(new) which is very fast enough even for thousands of products.

Steps:

1> Prepare CSV file(prices.csv) with two fields: sku & price and upload in the root of Magento installation.
You can see the snapshot how it should look like:
prices


2> Create a file: update_prices.php in the root of magento installation and paste the following code:


<?php
/**
 * @author      MagePsycho <info@magepsycho.com>
 * @website     http://www.magepsycho.com
 * @category    Export / Import
 */
$mageFilename = 'app/Mage.php';
require_once $mageFilename;
Mage::setIsDeveloperMode(true);
ini_set('display_errors', 1);
umask(0);
Mage::app('admin');
Mage::register('isSecureArea', 1);
Mage::app()->setCurrentStore(Mage_Core_Model_App::ADMIN_STORE_ID);
 
set_time_limit(0);
ini_set('memory_limit','1024M');
