X-Cart’s PHP ecommerce solution has an open source code, which makes it possible to integrate it with a variety of merchant services or payment gateways. X-Cart integrates with Fishbowl, allowing companies to synchronize their inventory and ecommerce systems together to speed up the order fulfillment process.
Let’s dig down a bit more into this integration:
- It’s simple to schedule imports of order information to Fishbowl from X-Cart in order to start picking, packing, and shipping the orders to customers.
- You can also schedule exports of order information from Fishbowl to X-Cart so that both contain the same information.
- Synchronize product names, descriptions, and other information on a regular basis to avoid any confusion about how to identify items in your inventory.
- Schedule frequent syncs of inventory quantities in these two solutions to ensure you don’t wind up with mismatched counts.
