  1. not granular enough for matrix as your tracking option combinations. it can get quite complex. I've about 800 lines of code to manage the matrix levels specifically within the Ebay solution, which essentially does what you are working on... sync with external system on a 1-1 relationship. 

  2. it's a lot more complex when it comes to matrix, depends on what is tracking levels and option combinations. product code is not a required field in matrix so cannot be reliably used. product code for matrix options also doesn't enforce uniqueness (is that a word?).

    Hi,

    My Wifes store has both a physical store and an online Cubecart store. She wants to be able to hold one inventory that updates when a sale is made either via the website or via the till.

    Is anyone aware of such a solution? @Noodleman I think you had a post mentioning this before but I am unable to find it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Morning,

    You want to start with a list of features you need from both systems, then figure out what data needs to be shared. I've assisted with Quickbooks POS integration previously, but that might not be a good fit for you.

    Does the till system you have in place already scan barcodes and report back to a system? IE, log the sales / inventory etc?

    I did build an integration with Lynworks for CubeCart, this may be able to do some of what you need depending on your requirements. 
    https://www.linnworks.com/

    and

    https://www.cubecart.com/extensions/external-software/linnworks-net-channel-module-for-cubecart

    The module has zero cost as the service itself uses a subscription model via Linnworks directly. 

    I would start with a detailed list of what you need from any solution, then it helps cross reference against potential solutions.

  4. I was going to share the same link, you beat me to it. thank you for sharing.

    The module was designed for that very purpose, but without the need to split it into multiple orders when short. 

     

     

  5. If you use shared hosting, it's typically an option to enable in your hosting control panel and quite straight forward.  if you self host, it's quite quick and easy to install the Ioncube Loaders (they are free).  if you have a manged hosting package then you would need to ask your host to enable the IonCube loaders. 

  6. it's a common issue, especially in earlier store themes. it just needs a minor refinement in your store theme to auto-select the first option in any list offered to the customer. you can even remove the "Please select" part so it will default to the first option in the list. 

  7. Shipping is a complex, rule based area with so many different solutions and each one totally different to every business. we built a module which lets you link specific products to specific shipping modules which can help with more complex scenarios. 

    An example of this would be for a shop selling small items, and large bulky items. We setup two All In One modules, then linked their bulky items to one and small items to the other. They manage two totally separate shipping configurations for those "band" of products to get rates for each band, then the aggregated costs is provided to the customer for shipping charges. It works well, but as with all things there are pro's and cons plus it is entirely situational based on your requirements.

  8. There is, but it is entirely bespoke. I helped build a Quickbooks Point of sale connector, but it isn't in the QB Cloud. There isn't anything off the shelf which will do what you want or need. In theory it is something we can help you get built, but our lead times much like your supplies are pretty stretched at the moment. 

  9. I've got a few scheduled calls coming up, but will give you a call back once I get a suitable block of availability today :)

    The solution can be a little, daunting at first as it offers support for a lot of business models. I like to chat to people about the best config for each business to ensure people get the best return on the investment in the license and also the time it can take to configure. Once it's setup, the admin overhead is minimal depending on your new inventory churn. 

    I often extend demo periods for people testing it out because it's a bit of a beast depending on the size of your store and how in depth  you want to get with things such as layout templates, stock control etc. 

     

  10. @Al Brookbanks.  Good morning..

    adding my opinion to this topic. I actually think that there may be a requirement to improve the eCommerce module on this occasion. Quite a lot of customers will use Authorise methods (I can think of 4 off the top of my head). However, the way each business works with Authorise methods will be different and especially so depending on where in the world people are. Some want the order as Pending, some want the order as Processing.

    I think there needs to be an additional setting within this module itself to define if an Auth payment goes to pending or processing.

    I am aware this can be achieved via the configuration at the store setting level, but this would be counter productive in cases where multiple payment gateways are installed and could cause a conflict of desired behaviour. Thus a setting in the module is more targeted. It should be a pretty simple modification and not take very long at all to add.

    Is this something that can be considered for a newer version of the PayPal eCommerce module?
