High-Level Overview

What is an E-Commerce Connector?

The Tinx E-Commerce Connector is an app developed by the Dutch company Tinx. The app is installed in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

With this native connector, you can easily integrate several different e-commerce platforms / webshops with the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC). All your existing master data, and newly added data in BC, can be synchronized to an e-commerce webshop, reducing the need for double data-entry. 

This information guide will help you set up the integration between your e-commerce webshop and BC, understand its features, and get the most out of this program and tool. With the extended Product Information Management (PIM) tool, which is part of our solution, you can maintain and control all your items in BC.

Our solution utilizes the default APIs of web platforms, whether this is a SOAP, REST or GraphQL protocol.

With a generic user interface, the Tinx connector allows you to map data between these two systems with ease!
