Magento 2 ERPNext Connector
As we’ve just promised above, you can leverage the Magento 2 ERPNext integration with the help of a special connector. A reliable tool that offers the desired functionality is called Improved Import & Export for Magento 2. The extension replaces the default Magento 2 import and export procedures providing an entirely new feature. In addition to the Magento 2 ERPNext synchronization, the module allows you to connect your store to an external system that supports standards described below.
One of the competitive advantages of the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension over other similar tools is rich connectivity options. While Magento 2 and standard connectors support only file transfers, our extension adds two more options: Google Sheets & REST API. Even when it comes to file transfers, the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension enables much more opportunities than others.
If Magento 2 connectors usually support only two file formats – CSV and XML, our extension extends this list dramatically. First of all, it adds full support for TXT files. It means that you can freely move them to and from your store establishing a complete connection between two systems. Another supported format is JSON. The extension also provides full support for it. Thus, you can easily migrate to Magento 2 from such systems as Shopify with the help of the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension. Besides, the module effortlessly works with native excel files. Now, it allows you transfer data between Magento 2 and external systems with XLS and XLSX sheets.
Multiple file sources are supported as well. The Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension allows synchronizing your e-commerce store with a third-party system by moving files through a server. Due to the extended FTP/SFTP support, you can use either your local server or a remote one. Besides, it is possible to transfer data files via Dropbox. You only need an account in the cloud. The third file destination is available for import processes only: you can move files to Magento 2 via a direct URL. Note that the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension unzip/untar all compressed files automatically.
As for the REST API integration, it allows eliminating the use of data files completely. The data is moved to/from an external system directly. As a result, even the most complicated integration is not a problem for the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension. Please, contact our support regarding the Magento 2 ERPNext integration via REST API.
To eliminate the use of data files, you can also rely on the Google Sheets integration. The process looks as follows:
In addition to rich connectivity options, we should also describe several necessary user-oriented improvements available with the Magento 2 ERPNext connector. First of all, it is the ability to create update schedules. Since import and export processes of the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension are independent and based on jobs (profiles), you can apply individual update plans to every profile.
Our extension supports cron allowing you to use its standard syntax for creating custom schedules. At the same time, it is possible to select one of the predefined intervals. The Improved Import & Export Magento 2 plugin provides the ability to customize even them. And you can create jobs available for a manual run only. They are especially useful in case of asynchronous updates. Note that you can launch every scheduled profile manually if necessary instead of creating a new job. The following gif image illustrates the essential nuances of scheduling:
Another crucial competitive advantage of our module is a user-friendly mapping interface that completely reduces problems caused by different data standards. Did you know that even Magento 2 and Magento 1 use different attributes so that you cannot move data from 1.x to 2.x without modifying it? The same is about every integration. As a result, it is necessary to edit data files during every update before importing them to your e-commerce store or exporting to an external system. Looks like a constant headache, isn’t it?
Neither Magento 2 nor most third-party extensions solve this issue, but the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 module is an exception. With its feature-rich interface, you will forever forget about constant data file editing. The module allows you to match default attributes of Magento 2 to any external requirements. Next, the created mapping scheme is saved for all further updates. Moreover, you can duplicate the profile to use the scheme in another job. Thus, you match attributes only once within the interface of the Improved Import & Export module. Next, the mapping scheme is applied automatically. Below, you can see how to match attribute with our plugin:
Also, note that our extension offers pre-made mapping presets. In some cases, you don’t even need to perform the action mentioned above to establish the connection. Due to mapping presets, the procedure is reduced to just a few clicks. Just take a look at how simple it is:
