DEAR Inventory + WooCommerce

Dear Inventory Logo WooCommerce logo

Let Stock2Shop send product updates from DEAR Inventory to WooCommerce, as well as automatically raise online orders directly into your ERP and instruct your warehouse to fulfill the order. Here’s how we can help you streamline your workflow.

Sync product and inventory data

Sync product and inventory data from DEAR Inventory to WooCommerce.

Near real time syncing

Our software continually monitors your DEAR Inventory database for changes in product information and sends these updates to WooCommerce. So if your pricing or stock levels are adjusted on DEAR Inventory, it won’t be long before these changes reflect on your website.

Choose the data to sync

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

Product information management (PIM)

Use Stock2Shop as a PIM to enrich product data not found in DEAR Inventory. 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 when sending product data to multiple online stores because you can manage most of your product enrichment in one place.

Run multiple online stores from one DEAR Inventory database

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

Assign a price list

You decide which price list on DEAR Inventory is synced to your WooCommerce channel. If you have multiple websites, each one can be assigned a different price list.

Sync inventory from one or multiple warehouses on DEAR Inventory

You can choose which warehouse (or combination of warehouses) on DEAR Inventory updates your stock quantities on WooCommerce.

Error management

If an update fails to process to your WooCommerce website, 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.

Automate raising orders

Automate raising orders

Orders received from WooCommerce can be automatically created in DEAR Inventory as a sale, sale quote, sale order or sale invoice.

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.

Create orders depending on status

You can decide whether all completed WooCommerce orders are raised into DEAR Inventory, or only those that have a specific order status, eg “PROCESSING”.

Decide the type of sale documents created in DEAR Inventory

Sale documents in DEAR Inventory are processed in a specific sequence, starting with a sale and ending in a sale invoice. You can determine to what extent a document is processed in DEAR Inventory once a valid order is received from WooCommerce. In other words, you may wish for WooCommerce to create sale orders, leaving you to handle the processing of invoices manually, or you may prefer to automate the processing of the document all the way through to sale invoice.

Set your debtors account

Create a default customer account on DEAR Inventory into which all WooCommerce orders will sync. This will prevent you from having loads of customer accounts on your ERP unnecessarily.

Customise order fields

You can map the data received on the WooCommerce order to the relevant fields on the DEAR Inventory sales document. Provided the data can be captured in your standard order screen on DEAR, it can be added automatically by Stock2Shop.

Error management

If an order fails to process to IQ Retail, 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.

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 WooCommerce order has successfully been raised into DEAR Inventory, Stock2Shop can send an automatic outbound notification to your third party logistics (3PL) partner so they can pick, pack and deliver.

Sync stock levels

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