Custom Database + B2B Trade Store

Custom database Logo B2B Trade Store logo

Stock2Shop can pull inventory data from a variety of databases. The only prerequisite is that the database can be accessed via ODBC. We therefore support Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL Server, Pervasive SQL, Hana and many other databases. Your custom database contains vital product data such as pricing and stock levels. Present this information to your wholesale customers with our B2B Trade Store, enabling them to browse your products and place orders with just a few clicks. Here’s how we can help you streamline your workflow.

Sync product and inventory data

Sync product and inventory data from your custom database to the B2B Trade Store.

Near real time syncing

Our software continually monitors your database for changes in product information and sends these updates to the B2B Trade Store. So if your pricing or stock levels are adjusted on your database, it won’t be long before these changes reflect on your store.

Choose the data to sync

You get to decide which data fields are synced from your database. You can also choose whether a particular field is managed by your database or Stock2Shop.

Product information management (PIM)

Use Stock2Shop as a PIM to enrich product data not found in your database. You are able to make your products more presentable for online selling by adding images, long descriptions and other marketing material. This is particularly useful should you decide to send product feeds to additional retail websites because you can manage your product enrichment in one place.

Run multiple online stores from one custom database

Once your product data has synced onto Stock2Shop and you have added product enrichment such as images and descriptions, opening data feeds to additional ecommerce websites is easy.

Accommodate customer price tiers

Assign your customers to a price tier that is linked to the relevant price list in your database, ensuring that when they log into the B2B Trade Store, they see the right prices.

Error management

If an update fails to process to your B2B Trade Store, an error will appear in your Stock2Shop console and you will be sent an email notification. The error will give an indication of what caused the update failure, and once you’ve rectified the issue, you can reset the update to try again.

Upload customer and account information

Upload customer and account information

Upload your list of your wholesale customers to the B2B Trade Store.

Onboard customers

Add wholesale customers onto your Stock2Shop console, including their customer account codes, warehouse allocation and sales reps. When a customer logs in to the B2B Trade Store, they will see relevant pricing and stock availability.

Segment customers by console user (e.g. sales rep)

You are able to limit which customers a particular console user is able to view when they log in. This means your sales reps will not have access to each other’s customers.

Automate raising orders

Orders placed on the B2B Trade Store can be automatically dropped off at an FTP location.

Custom notifications

Assign administrators in your business to receive notifications at various stages of the syncing process. You can also alert specific administrators of certain sync activity, eg the sales manager can receive notifications of successful orders and the IT manager can be notified of failed orders.

Ordering tool for sales reps

Your reps can log into their customers’ accounts and place orders on their behalf. Stock2Shop is mobile friendly, making it a useful tool for capturing orders while on the road.

Allow back orders

Enable back orders, allowing customers to continue buying products that are out of stock.

Offer payment by credit card

You can offer customers the ability to pay upfront by credit card, using one of our accepted payment gateways.

Error management

If an order fails to process, an error will appear in your Stock2Shop console and you will be sent an email notification. The error will give an indication of what caused the failure, and once you’ve rectified the issue, you can reset the order to try again.

Automate raising orders
Raise fulfillments

Raise fulfillments

Fulfill your orders with one of our logistics partners or directly in your WMS (warehouse management system).

Automate fulfillments

Have a totally automated solution, from placing an online order to dispatching for delivery. Once a valid Magento order has been received, Stock2Shop can send an automatic outbound notification to your third party logistics partner so they can pick, pack and deliver.

If your WMS or fulfillment partner supports delivery notifications, they will return fulfilment data to Stock2Shop (waybill / tracking number / tracking link). The Magento order will then be updated with this information and the order’s state is changed to “Complete”. Your customers can then easily track the progress of their order.

Sync stock levels

If your WMS or fulfillment partner supports stock feeds, Stock2Shop can automate the updating of stock levels directly on Magento.
