IQ Retail

IQ Retail is an on-premise ERP system with an API Interface for seamless integration.

IQ Retail is client-owned. This means that it is installed on a server at your office, on your actual work computer or on a server in the cloud. In order for Stock2Shop to facilitate integration with your channels and fulfillment services (e.g. Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, the B2B Trade store, Parcelninja and Takealot Marketplace), we need access to your database via the IQ API Interface.

In the below documentation we will be covering:

Connecting to Stock2Shop

In order for Stock2Shop to connect with an IQ Retail database, Stock2Shop requires the following:

  • IQ Retail version of V2021.1.0 or greater
  • Request URL
  • IQ company number
  • IQ terminal number
  • IQ user number (must have API access setup on IQ)
  • IQ user password
  • IQ Retail API is registered, setup and configured

Note, your network administrator or IQ Retail consultant would need to make sure the IQRetailRestAPI endpoint is accessible over the internet.

Syncing products to Stock2Shop

Stock2Shop can sync products, product relationships (parent-child), categorisation, multiple warehouses and multiple price lists (tiers) from IQ Retail to your Stock2Shop console. This product information can then be distributed to one or multiple supported B2B and/or B2C ecommerce sales channels.

Syncing customers to Stock2Shop

We currently do not support the syncing of customers from IQ Retail to Stock2Shop, and there are no plans to build this functionality.

If customers are a requirement, please read up on how to import customers manually in to your client console here.

Raising orders to IQ Retail

Stock2Shop can sync sales orders and invoices to IQ Retail using the order payload received from your sales channel(s).
