We are running a joomla website with joomla 1.7 using (joomshopping or virtue mart) as our shopping cart system. We are looking to export our orders to an external accounting system (SAP). The SAP interface uses an xml formatted file to import orders. We would like an automatic export of products from our shopping cart to a XML file on the server. This would probably be done using a cron job which exports the orders from the shopping cart to an xml file every 15 minutes. The shopping cart database would be updated to reflect the orders already export so the next export only exports new orders.
I have uploaded a sample xml file which can be used for the file export. I would need this integration done within a couple of weeks as we are ready to go live with our website. If you have a simalar exporting routine which could be applied to our unique situation we would be open to this possibility.
We would prefer to use the JoomShopping cart if possible. There are many simple exports already created for this shopping system. All we need is the export of orders to be in an xml format which I uploaded to this project. We will download the exported file and import it into our SAP system.
Let me clarify our project. I used the SAP interface as a point of reference. We do not need an integration to SAP just an export of orders from our website. This project is a simple export of orders from (JoomShopping cart or Virutemart shopping cart) for joomla. We prefer the JoomShopping cart over virutemart. We will manually download the export file and import it into our SAP accounting system.
There are many free and paid "order exports" already on the market for both of these shopping systems. They all export to flat text files. We simply need an export to xml format instead of text files. The export must also be automated via a cron job every 15 minutes. When exporting orders there must be a way to zero out the orders already exported so the new file is fresh with new orders only.
I would think it would be easy to use an existing export to a text file and change the format so that it now exports into xml format. I have attached 3 files to this project. A sample export file we already have from an older ASP shopping cart and the xml descriptions file which describes the format to be exported. This is not a product export but an orders export.
Here are the two shopping cart systems websites with export extention for your reference.
Our online store does hundreds of orders a day via the website. It saves us an enormous amount of time shipping products when we can imprt the orders into our accounting and shipping system. Our very old asp shopping cart already had this ability to export orders to an xml format and work for many years. We are now upgrading to a joomla system and must duplicate the export of orders.
