Other Questions

  • Does the lists (i.e. Items, ShipMethods, etc) EXACLTY the same in both systems?
  • Do you need to UPLOAD data to the web database?
  • Which Windows operating system are you using?

What we need for Database Interface (not file upload)

  • Access to Database to view structure, export, SQL tools (i.e. MySQL Query Browser, phpMyAdmin)
  • FTP access if a script will be used (not for Remote Access)
  • Connection String for Remote Access (i.e. ODBC) i.e. external ip#/URL, database name, user, password
  • SQL SELECT Statement for retrieve complete order info for all orders ready for importation
  • Store's Admin access to see what the orders are suppose to look like

Does NOT change the cart. Uses remote access via ODBC or a small PHP or ASP script. In worse case we can import from a downloaded file (i.e. XLS,CSV,Tab delimited Text, XML).

Almost any cart can be supported via a manual download interface- just send us the files you download. This is usally done only if there are no other seamless options (i.e. ODBC, API, etc.).

Have a custom made cart - we can customize our Integrator to work with it.
