Hi All,

Just had a query which must have been solved 10 fold. Basically the requirement is to integrate Ebay/Paypal orders, WebSite OS Commerce Orders and Telesales orders into SAGE Line 50. While I appreciate Sage L50 may be a bit UK specific it would be good to hear views on this. Conceptually I am imagining a software package/DB with sucks these orders in against pre setup customers, manages the picking, packaging and despatch while pushing the Invoices details into the accounts package.

Any ideas hugely appreciated.

    i am not sure about sage, but my accountant here in the UK also accepts QuickBooks as well as sage so i use mals ecommerce with morders to track sales as this has a quickbooks integration.

    I was told that although most accountants prefer sage, most also use QuickBooks.

    i have also used orderhistory for mals which does the same.

    PS mals links with PayPal and if you set up paypal (something to do with post back from paypal) all payment via ebay to paypal will be tracked, sorry forgot to state thats how ebay come into this.

    Thanks for this feedback. We are stuck with Sage as that is what the chap uses. So it is about how to get all the orders into this from EBay and OSCommerce etc.

    Any ideas greatly welcome,

    i am sure with OSCommerce there are many firms that can add this on (a open source add on may be out there for free), as for ebay best is to track orders via paypal back to the system added on for OSCommerce.
