Hi. Today, I’m going to talk a little bit about prices, inventory, and other apps extensions. If you have some customer extensions on your Business Central, how does that affect the Abakion B2B E-commerce?

Usually, when we look at the old way of doing e-commerce with Business Central, when you change something in Business Central, change the way you calculated your sales price on the sales quote for the customer, you have to replicate the data for that change and the actual change in the code to the website. But since we’re using Business Central as our engine for calculating stuff, for calculating inventory, when you change something in Business Central, you change it on the website immediately.

For example, I have this bike, number 1000, and it has a normal unit price of 5,399. But I’ve also created some specific Danish sales prices for some customers here, that they get it for 2,000 if they buy one or two, and if they buy three or more, they get it for 1,000. I’ve logged on as a customer, and I can see that they get it right now for 2,000. But if I change this to three, I see the price change to 1,000. What if I want to change that? I want to say that’s too cheap, or I had a campaign price change, there could be some dates on this. It doesn’t really matter because the change is that if it works in Business Central, whatever you calculate in Business Central on the sales quote is what we calculate on the website. So if I update this and change the amount, I will see that the price now is 2,000 per unit, and if I change it to one, I see the price is 3,000 per unit. So whatever change you make in Business Central is instantaneously available on the website for the customers. If you had added something, if you had added an app for changing the inventory and synchronizing it with the, if you have some other handling your warehouse, not yourself, these information, all these apps, as long as they change the data in Business Central, or change how stuff are calculated on the sales quote, it’s shown on the website. So if you do some customer extension on the sales price, it works on the website when you publish it to the Business Central.

This is one of the very interesting thing about this way of doing an e-commerce solution because you don’t need to maintain it two places, and it’s available for the customers in the same moment as it’s available in Business Central.
