It is almost three years now since our first integration with Magento and today we have some exciting news!
This year Magento 2 was announced and we just loved the new improvements. The new version is totally revamped, offering a great user experience. So, during these last couple of months, we worked carefully to upgrade our solid integration between Magento 2 and Megaventory, and we are proud to announce that the new version of the integration is finally here! Plus, there is some more development news we have for you, so – without further ado – let’s jump right in.
Magento 2 is now supported
The defining feature of Magento 1 was definitely its flexibility. Yet, this came with the cost of not being the most user-friendly e-commerce software. To address this, along with other issues, the Magento team designed Magento 2. Among its key features are improved performance, user-friendly check-out, several key integrations to increase payment security, better admin interface, and more mobile-friendly.
Until recently, Megaventory supported Magento accounts up to version 1.9, but now Megaventory is in the Magento 2 Marketplace as well. Check it out!
Multiple Magento stores under one Megaventory account
In case you have multiple Magento installations, you can now track all their stock and orders through a single Megaventory login! Megaventory now supports multiple Magento installations out of the box and that is available whether you’re using Magento 1 or 2!
If you have -and manage- different e-shops and it makes sense to you to keep all the stock in one place, this extension can help you have a great control over your business or businesses.
All you need to do is to setup each of Magento stores to work with Megaventory as if you would do individually. Other than that there are two key differences:
2. The other difference lies in the Setup Wizard in Magento. You will need to choose the value in the Magento Id field which corresponds to the Magento installation in question as far as Megaventory is concerned. Make sure that none of the Magento installations you connect to a given Megaventory account have the same Magento Id set in this field!
Finally, note that each Magento installation can be connected to all or some of the available locations set in Megaventory. This is defined by the Inventory Locations section in the Megaventory Settings in Magento.
Last but not least, we added an undelete option! When you delete a product from your Megaventory account it is possible to undelete them through your Magento backend.
To do this, in your Magento backend go to Catalog -- Manage Products open the product you wish to undelete and click Save. If the product is deleted in Megaventory, you will see a notification that will prompt you to undelete it:
You simply need to click the link in the notification to restore the product in Megaventory. This should save you some hassle from products you’ve forgotten you have in your systems as deleted but you may want to use again.
A final note
If your business relies on the Magento e-commerce software, integrating it with Megaventory will bring superior inventory management while keeping your products synced across Magento and Megaventory over all your inventory locations.
Alternatively, if you're using Megaventory and actively considering taking your business online, now you have a couple of additional reasons why you finally should take the step with Magento. Tracking inventory online will be easy if you choose the Magento approach, which is already the platform of choice for hundreds of thousands of ecommerce installations.
