Big Business 8.6 adds the option to include Items in Middleware. This feature makes it easy to provide up to the minute inventory information to your online store, web site, or other systems.
The Middleware Add-On is an option that allows Big Business to synchronize data with an external data source (MySQL) where it can be more readily accessed, repurposed, and manipulated.
This Solution provides details for use. (6292)
By default the Middleware Add-On puts Sales Orders in MySQL, to be read by UPS or FedEx without exposing other data, and gets ShipInfo (Tracking, Charges, Notes) to update Big Business.
When you enable Middleware, dialogs will ask if you want to:
Include Invoices? No, unless needed for Commercial Invoices for FedEx International
Include Items? Yes, to make your inventory details available to your web store
