RMS and E-commerce


D

I have a very basic question - we are using v2.0 of the RMS. I had a
developer create an XML formatted file of an internet order from our
e-commerce software on the webserver. There will be a semi-manual process to
move that xml file from the server to my local computer to be processed by
the POS - but when I try the CTRL + SHIFT + F10 it is looking for a server to
connect to - am I missing somehting basic for this functionality. I thought I
would be ready to import these online orders once I had this formatted XML
file

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Thank you

When you say move the XML file from your server to your local computer
do you mean just copying the file or actually loading the XML into
your database? I'm pretty sure the XML needs to be loaded into the
table called Exchange in the database. This will allow them to pull
up when you hit ctrl+shift+F10.

Thanks for the reply - I have no trouble getting it from the server to local
computer - but not sure what to do with it now - when i do that keystroke -
is looking for a server to connect to - not sure how to configure it... seems
that I have to load that data manually into the Exchange db like you said,
but cant find any help on how/where to do it...

When you say move the XML file from your server to your local computer
do you mean just copying the file or actually loading the XML into

table called Exchange in the database.  This will allow them to pull
up when you hit ctrl+shift+F10.
When you say that the POS is looking for a server it sounds like you
are hitting shift + ctrl + F12 (RMSNet). When you hit shift + ctrl +
F10 it pops up a window titled "Open Internet Orders".

The XML file needs to be inserted into the exchange table. Some of the
formatting is very specific. One thing that really threw me off is
that 'YahooStore' has to be specified for the ProcessorCode. I don't
use a Yahoo store but I couldn't get the XML data to be recognized if
I used any other string for the ProcessorCode. As far as I'm concerned
it's a meaningless piece of data so it's no problem to use
'YahooStore'.

You can automate the downloading and importing of the XML file from
your web server to your RMS server by using a scheduled script to ftp
down the file and run a sql statement to insert the data into the
exchange table. The only manual part should be having a cashier click
shift + ctrl + F10 to load an order.

we have a rms integrated solution that readily takes a preformatted XML to
the Exchaneg table and from there you can do Ctrl + Shift + F10 and process
order in POS.

In addition to this we have a full blown add on that downloads orders from
Yahoo Merchant Services.
