Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is an on-premise ERP system. Stock2Shop will therefore be pushing updates from your ERP database using our Apifact software.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is client-owned. This means that the ERP application is installed on a server at your office, on an on-site computer or on a server in the cloud. In order for Stock2Shop to facilitate integration between Microsoft Dynamics NAV and other sales channels and fulfilment services (e.g. Shopify, Magento 1.x, Magento 2.x, WooCommerce, the B2B Trade store, Parcelninja and Takealot Marketplace), we need access to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV database.

In the below documentation we will be covering:

Connecting to Stock2Shop

In order for Stock2Shop to connect with Microsoft Dynamics NAV, we require the following:

  • Stock2Shop’s software (Apifact) installed on ERP server
  • Server name / IP address
  • Database name
  • Database username (read-only)
  • Database password (read-only)

For more information on the installation of Stock2Shop’s software, see our guide on installing Stock2Shop for on-premise ERP / accounting systems.

Syncing products to Stock2Shop

Stock2Shop can sync products, product relationships (parent-child), categorisation, multiple warehouses and multiple price lists (tiers) from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 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 Microsoft Dynamics NAV 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 Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Stock2Shop can sync order payloads received from your sales channel(s) to an FTP location provided by you. We cannot sync orders directly into Microsoft Dynamics NAV unless you have a suitable business object installed.
