Magento Connector

ChannelAdvisor Connector for Magento® (“the Connector”) provides transmission of product and order data between the Magento platform and the Customer’s ChannelAdvisor account.

The Connector includes the following features:

  • Test suite to test for compatibility of the connector with your Magento store.
  • Full product catalog sync from Magento to ChannelAdvisor once daily
  • Product availability and price sync from Magento to ChannelAdvisor every 30 minutes
  • Order import from ChannelAdvisor to Magento every 30 minutes
  • Shipment tracking update from Magento to ChannelAdvisor every 30 minutes

To use the Connector a Customer will need to provide their Magento Admin URL to ChannelAdvisor. The Customer is responsible for the configuration of the Connector within their Magento store.

Restrictions and Assumptions

  • The Connector only supports the “Magento-as-hub” model. In this model, Magento is the system of record for catalog, product information, and orders. Catalog and inventory/price updates flow from Magento to ChannelAdvisor – and orders flow from ChannelAdvisor to Magento. This connector will not support the reverse model in which ChannelAdvisor is the hub.
  • Product Data, including quantity and price, will only sync one-way, from Magento to ChannelAdvisor, not both directions.
  • The Connector does not process refunds or cancellations.
  • Only shipment carrier information from the “Shipping Information Carrier” field can be mapped to ChannelAdvisor.
  • The date shipped may only be set to the “Date Shipped” in Magento. This cannot be customized.
  • The tracking number will only be sent from the “Shipping Information Number” field in Magento. This cannot be customized.
  • Only one shipment per order is supported
