Sync eCommerce Orders to Sage Business Cloud
Raise orders from your eCommerce store on Sage Business Cloud. All line items, discounts and customer data pull through automatically within seconds. No need to spend time manually capturing orders from WooCommerce or Shopify into Sage Business Cloud.
Once your API connection is set up and Storehub.io/Sage Business Cloud sync, the following information will be available to send to any one of your sales channels (WooCommerce, Shopify etc.).
- Stock (Stock on hand minus stock on order)
- Price list (incl. or excl. VAT)
- VAT rates
- Product title
- Product description
Bringing the product data in from Sage Business Cloud to Storehub.io is the first step towards integrating with your eCommerce site/Marketplace.
Once this data is in Storehub.io, you can enrich your products with merchandising (images, gallery images, categories, filter tags, product variables/sizes/colours and more), activate/delete products and flag products to sync to your sales channels (WooCommerce etc.).
Connecting Storehub.io to your sales channels is as simple as copy-pasting the API keys from WooCommerce onto your Storehub.io account. Once completed, Merchandising data will flow from Storehub.io to WooCommerce/Shopify, so product merchandising, pricing & stock will update automatically.
If you have an existing eCommerce store, and would like to sync it with your Sage Business Cloud accounting data, the following Storehub.io modes are available:
Merchandising on Storehub.io – This mode is used when you want to send product and merchandising data to multiple channels (eCommerce stores or Marketplaces).
Merchandising on channel – This mode is used when you have an existing eCommerce store and don’t plan on adding a B2B Trade store module in the future, or integrating with other marketplaces like Amazon, Takealot.com or eBay. This makes for a much simpler setup process as the user does not have to copy the merchandising information from an existing eCommerce store into Storehub.io.
The order information raised in Sage Business Cloud contains the following:
- Sales channel order reference number.
- Delivery address.
- Billing address.
- Customer details (name, contact number, email).
- Order line items.
- SKU Item prices + VAT.
- Item discount % per line item (discount is worked out as a percentage of sale price vs ERP price). All discounts/offers are managed on your eCommerce platform.
- Order comments.
- All orders syncing from WooCommerce to Sage Business Cloud may contain a prefix that you define, like “WOO”0018443 – this helps identify the order at a glance.
