Custom product, order and inventory feeds for ASPDotNetStorefront

Filed under: commercial — Tags: , , , — Webopius @ 12:34 pm

ASPDotNetStorefront (ASPDNSF) ships with a number of methods to get product information imported into your site including Excel-based product importing and the Web Services Interface (WSI).

Sometimes, your business needs a more complex, scheduled solution that can automatically update your product, category, manufacturer and inventory data based on external data sources or triggers. Alternatively, you may want to notify third party providers of changes to your product or order date. This can include ERP, Accounting, CRM, Warehouse and Fulfilment systems.

Custom ASPDotNetStorefront (ASPDNSF) automated data updates

Webopius have developed a number of custom in-bound and out-bound data feeds for ASPDotNetStorefront. We can integrate with almost any system that can provide data as XML, CSV, Excel, via an API or other file formats.

Some examples of custom data modules we have developed for ASPDotNetStorefront…

  • Enhanced Excel product and category importers
  • Inbound inventory feed that automatically updates product stock levels based on warehouse stock/customer returns. Runs daily.
  • Outbound order feed to a fulfilment provider – notifies them of new orders and updates the ASPDNSF shipped/tracking info as items are shipped. Runs hourly.
  • Inbound product feed from ICECAT
  • Inbound XML product and inventory feed module based on data from third party product database

None of the above modules have required changing the core ASPDotNetStorefront source code and most sit alongside the existing store and are scheduled to run on a regular basis.

If you would like to enhance your ASPDNSF site with near real-time data updates, then contact Webopius with your ASPDotNetStorefront requirements for a no obligation estimate.
