Part 4: Order Completion
By: Mike Catalfamo
Completing the order using an integrated solution involves updating the order on your E-Commerce site with the relevant shipping details such as the tracking number, shipment date, quantities shipped for each product. This typically triggers a few events on your E-Commerce site such as an email to the customer and release of payment into your bank account. Since this is relatively straightforward, let’s look at shipping in general.
Last month, we announced the new design for our website. Since then, there has been an enormous amount of work going on behind the scenes. Now that the beta testing is finished, we’re pleased to announce the launch of the new version of ePortal – our Online Integration Platform.

Part 3: Inventory Management
By: Mike Catalfamo
Over the past few weeks, we have been looking at some of the pitfalls you might encounter during an integration project and I have provided some ideas about how to approach them. If you haven’t read the earlier posts yet, you can start with the first post here.
My goal for this post is to highlight some things to consider about inventory as it pertains to integration. Selling ice cream is not the same as selling clothing which is not the same as selling books or services so I will try to keep this high-level. If you have any more specific questions or feedback, I would love to hear from you.
Updated: Since posting, I received some feedback that I didn’t provide some clear tips about how to handle unit/pricing conversions. Comments and feedback are encouraged!
