The e-commerce.

3rd part integration


Recommended Posts



I have a client that is wanting me to do the usual customization of an e-commerce platform which is no problem. They also want me to integrate it with their existing inventory tracking system however and this is outside of my normal scope of operation. I was hoping someone here may be able to shed some light on this as I have no experience in integrating oscommerce with anything else. I have been assured by their tech dept that it has been done many times before and isn't that complicated. I think I had better check in here first before I accept the contract though :)


Here is a basic breakdown of what is required :


From an integration perspective, the ITS (inventory tracking system) will produce the files needed to populate the website (Customer, Product, Routes, Pricing, etc). We will have to determine how to deliver the files (usually ftp) and the website will consume them. Once a customer places an order, the website will generate a file (in ITS format), deliver it back to us and the ITS will consume it.


Anyone?? I have lots more info such as file types and content required etc but didn't want to shove it all into my first post, please do ask for more info if needed.


Many thanks in advance.
