FileMaker magento





FileMaker Magento connection

You can use FM Commerce to load orders and customer data directly from your webshop into your FileMaker database! This automation tool eliminates mind numbing re-typing or other manual import/export tasks while at the same time avoiding the introduction of errors.

Magento is the eCommerce software and platform trusted by the world's leading brands. The Magento platform is available in two versions: a free & open source community version, and an Enterprise version. Merchants with Magento as their eCommerce platform use extensions to make their online stores do even more.





FileMaker Magento API

FM Commerce uses the Magento API, an API which is specifically designed by Magento for exchanging data with other systems. This overcomes performance issues that occur when using other techniques, such as linking via ODBC.
