Export Orders via Plugin

This plugin is a .net assembly that contains instructions on how to create the export file. Instead of mapping an order with columns for the export file, the assembly allows you to do more complicated tasks, such as creating one row per product. You can also manipulate the values that are exported, allowing you to conform to any standard.
Once the plugin is written and compiled, it is placed in the plugins folder on the server. Whenever you want to export orders, you can select the new available format from the drop-down list.

To export orders with a plugin:

  1. Go to Orders > Manage Orders > Select orders > Action menu > Export Orders.
  2. A new window will pop up. From the Format drop-down menu, select the plugin.
  3. Optionally, check Mark Orders as Exported. This option is usually used when you need to track which orders were exported.
  4. Click Export to submit the job to the queue.The images shows the plugin export.
