CartRover is a web-application that is pre-integrated with all of the most popular e-commerce shopping carts, allowing fulfillment centers to easily connect their merchant's online order sources to their Warehouse/Order Management System (WMS/OMS) for the purpose of order fulfillment.
There are four steps of communication to complete the order process:
CartRover offers two account types:
CartRover can download orders from any number of order sources per account. In CartRover these systems are called "Carts".
CartRover can send orders to ONE system per account. In CartRover, this is referred to as the WMS.
Standard integration functions include (all on automatic schedules set by user):
|Order Download||Orders are downloaded from order source (e.g. Shopify, Amazon, etc.) into CartRover application||Frequency set per cart connection|
|Order Delivery||Newly downloaded orders in CartRover are sent to the WMS system|
Frequency set per merchant
|Shipping Confirmations||Shipments (tracking numbers) are retrieved from the WMS system into CartRover application||Frequency set per merchant|
|Shipment Upload||Newly retrieved shipments (tracking numbers) are sent to the order source from CartRover||Frequency set per cart connection|
|Inventory||Inventory levels are retrieved from the WMS system into CartRover application||Frequency set per merchant|
|Inventory Upload||Newly retrieved inventory levels from WMS are sent to each order source by CartRover||Frequency set per cart connection|
Note: Some integrations may include purchase order sync and/or product sync in addition to the functions above. Some order sources do not support shipment confirmations or inventory sync, although the vast majority do.

If you clicked away from the page you can find it under: the Carts tab → select the cart → click Edit Setup → go to the Services section.
Setting each service will turn on the connection to the shopping cart.
|Order Download||Sets how often CartRover downloads orders from the shopping cart|
|Shipment Upload||Sets how often CartRover sends tracking numbers received from the WMS back to the shopping cart|
|Inventory Upload||Sets how often CartRover sends inventory levels received from the WMS back to the shopping cart|
If you do not already have orders waiting to be downloaded in the shopping cart, it is a good idea to place test orders to verify the connection passes the order information to your WMS as desired. If you are mapping ship methods in CartRover it is a good idea to place a test order using each offered shipping service in the shopping cart. This will prevent you from having to map each ship method one by one over time.
