Stock balance

Stock balance is sent from Ongoing Warehouse to the web shop.

Default settings and considerations

The integration provides default settings which are suitable in most cases. However, there are some possibilities for customization.

  1. Synchronization interval.
    Default: Every 15 minutes. It is usually a suitable balance between responsiveness and band-width usage.
  2. Do you have any variant of your articles without unique article numbers? For example, colors, sizes, packaging.
    Default: No.
  3. When should an order in Abicart be transferred to Ongoing Warehouse?
    Default: No filter. It is possible to filter on delivery status and/or payment status.
  4. Should orders be reported to Abicart as partly delivered when partly delivered in Ongoing (only available in Abicart PLUS)?
    Default: No.
