Below is a brief overview of how Stock2Shop syncs product updates from Pastel to the B2B Trade Store, and automatically raises online orders into Pastel as sales orders.
There are two main elements to this Stock2Shop integration:
Stock2Shop can sync vital product data from your Pastel Partner or Pastel Xpress to the B2B Trade Store. This means that your wholesale customers and sales reps will see accurate stock levels and pricing.
We can, in fact, sync any of the data in your Pastel product table to your Stock2Shop console. You can then choose to add enrichment such as images and other marketing information before sending it to the following fields on the Trade Store:
