What is CartRover?

CartRover is a web-application that is pre-integrated with all of the most popular e-commerce shopping carts, allowing merchants to easily connect their online order sources to their 3PL fulfillment center or warehouse/order management system for the purpose of order fulfillment.

CartRover offers two account types:

  1. CartRover Fulfillment Account - designed to be managed by a 3PL fulfillment center, allowing them to connect the e-commerce order sources of each of their merchants to their WMS system.
  2. CartRover Merchant Account - designed to be managed by the merchant, allowing the merchant to connect their e-commerce order sources to their 3PL fulfillment center or their own WMS/OMS system. 

Each account offers the same functionality, with the only difference being that the Fulfillment account is used to manage connections for multiple merchants, and the Merchant account is used to manage integrations for a single merchant.

Standard integration functions include (all on automatic schedules set by user):
