Import Inventory

In this Topic: Show


The Import Options screen is displayed when the Import Inventory button on the Shopping Cart Functions screen is clicked. This function is used to import product records from the shopping cart (web store) into the Order Manager, if the shopping cart supports that feature.

Some shopping carts that support this feature may deviate slightly from the example shown in this topic, as indicate in the list at the end of this topic. Review the Knowledge Base pages for the specific shopping cart to determine its capabilities or check the Shopping Cart Matrix.

Click the Show link next to "In This Topic" at the top of this page to see a series of links in outline form, which can be used to quickly jump to that section of the topic.

In addition, major topics may provide a brief synopsis of a field's purpose or direct the reader to the appropriate section of the topic by scrolling over the image. To return to the previous location within the same page, right-click the mouse and select [Back].

If clicking a field directs the reader to a different Knowledge Base topic, it will open in a new tab or window, leaving the currently viewed topic open. The browser's settings determine whether a new tab or window is opened.
