The E-Commerce module is used for managing orders which come from the Internet or via E-mail. In addition, it can be used to select which items are to be sold on the Interenet.
The orders can come into XAL in 3 ways:
E-mails are received with purchase orders. A customer can print out their purchase requisition as an E-mail if they run XAL. Other E-mails can also be imported if they follow the template which is defined in XAL.
An Internet shop which is not run by XAL, but rather by an independent service provider. The service provider sends E-mails with the order information from the shop.
The company has its own Internet server which supplies information directly to XAL from XAL’s Internet solution.
