Easy integration with your website
INQEO specialises in e-commerce: find a variety of ways to easily integrate your website (or order management system) with INQEO, so you can concentrate on selling - and not order processing.
Manage all your orders, and integrations, in one place with the web-based INQEO Connect order management system.
With INQEO Connect you, or your team, are able to login to your personal order processing account. You can place, view, and manage orders and shipments, download reports, and integrate with your website for fully-automated order processing.
Product Data (Selling)
Thousands of stock designs and product types/sizes are available for immediate sale from the INQEO Partner Brands; Consalnet, Fotowalls, and Uniqwalls.
Organised product data is available in CSV form to import into your webstore.
Data includes basic product data, grouping data (grouping several size/variants together under one design), and rich data including titles, keywords, and design attribute.
CSV's are continually updated and available on fixed URLs - they can be downloaded directly, or you may be able to configure your system to automatically download the files from the URL on a regular schedule.
CSV files are available from our Partner Brand websites, please note you may need to register first as a business customer in order to gain access - or alternatively contact your INQEO representative for the URL links and further information;
Place orders manually
From INQEO Connect you are able to easily and quickly place orders manually.
Orders can be placed to be sent together (back to warehouse), for factory collection, or to be individually drop-shipped directly to your customer.
Place orders automatically via XML/FTP Connection
INQEO Connect has been developed with scale in mind: you are able to export your orders automatically to INQEO via XML file and uploading to an INQEO FTP location. Order data can be imported via the system.
XML/FTP integration requires custom development from your order management system. Our development team are however available to assist your developers if needed.
Overview of XML/FTP Connection
1. FTP access
You will receive unique FTP access credentials and a directory on the INQEO server in which you can schedule uploads of XML files containing your order data. Our cron is set to run once every 15 minutes.
2. XML file
Please configure your XML file as in the example below;
<?xml version="1.0"?><orders> <order> <increment_id>ORDER-ID</increment_id> <internal_order_id>YOUR-SYSTEM-ORDER-ID</internal_order_id> <coupon_code>DISCOUNT-CODE-IF-APPLICABLE</coupon_code> <customer_email>firstname.lastname@example.org</customer_email> <order_currency_code>EUR</order_currency_code> <sales_channel>example_sales_channel</sales_channel> <payment_method>PayOnAccount</payment_method> <shipping_method>standard_shipping</shipping_method> <shipping_address> <fax/> <region>Berlin</region> <postcode>10999</postcode> <lastname>Smith</lastname> <street>Leuschnerdamm 13</street> <city>Berlin</city> <email>email@example.com</email> <telephone>0777123456789</telephone> <country_id>DE</country_id> <firstname>John</firstname> <address_type>shipping</address_type> <prefix/> <middlename/> <suffix/> <company/> <vat_id/> </shipping_address> <order_items> <order_item> <sku>TEST123</sku><qty_ordered>1.0000</qty_ordered> </order_item> </order_items> </order></orders>
You can enter your individual sales channel here. This is to help you identify orders from different channels in the system. Orders will be saved in INQEO as "sales_channel" + "internal_order_id". E.g. MySalesChannel-1234567.
XML orders require pre-authorised payment on account - this involves a standing weekly pre-payment for the average weekly order values. This is then used as credit against orders. A monthly statement is provided showing all orders placed, and current account standing. Please use parameter value "PayOnAccount" for <payment_method> ... </payment_method> tags.
<shipping_method>Please use either "standard_shipping" (dropshipping / DPD/DHL delivery) or "factory_collection" (for pre-arranged pickup from the factory only).
Orders with multiple items
Please add each individual sku and qty between <order_item> tags, and place all <order_item> tags between <order_items> ... </order_items> tag.
Please ensure you use the ISO-2 2-digit country ID code for <country_id> tags.
When testing, please send all XML files via email to your technical representative for pre-approval before moving on to uploading directly to FTP location.
