Customer

A customer of an e-commerce website can register online.

Also, any already registered users who have an account on your online store have all the information about themselves, which you can download to SAP Business One in real-time with a few actions. For the guest clients on your site, there is also data that can be synchronized with SAP Business One. You can use the contact and address information. For easy tracking, you can create some activities for the visitors of your store who are not registered. This will help you to collect information about them and provide accurate services.    

Items

You can also synchronize different information about your Items in SAP Business One and create a sheet in the ZenCart e-commerce web store there. SAP Business One Warehouses can be fully connected to the Zen Cart store. We can help you synchronize the data on the products that you have in the warehouse or in the inventory. 

Order 

In addition, all sales orders that are made in Zen Cart can be synchronized and converted into SAP Business One Sales Orders. The orders that were left by guest visitors will also be synchronized in the database. At the same time, we provide the ability to store data such as an Order Approval Process, checking payment, stock, and even customer validation process. All payment information and Payment Method can be integrated and synchronized from Zen Cart to SAP Business One in Sales. There is a collection of information about Online Payment, and Online Payment Transaction ID. Also, the shipping costs and the tax table for the exact calculation of all costs and amounts for the transition to SAP Business Sales Orders are taken into account. 

Payment 

During integration, the Zen Cart store can synchronize the payment gateway, and payment authorization along with the Invoice will be instantly generated in the eCommerce store. Also, in the case when the payment process should take place after shipment you can transfer all delivery information in SAP Business One with the Transaction ID. Let’s assume that a customer specifies the Credit Card Information. Our integration solution lets you save all the corresponding data and provide it to SAP Business One as a Sales Order.

Shipment 

The Shipping Method that the customer selected in the front of your store can be easily tracked and remembered in SAP Business One Sales Order after order synchronization.
