Integrating Magento & Sage 200 to achieve eBay’s X.Commerce objectives for an start-to-end e-commerce platform


Integrating Magento & Sage 200 to achieve eBay’s X.Commerce objectives for an start-to-end e-commerce platform

In June 2011, eBay bought the remaining 51% stake in Magento as part of a strategy for its X.Commerce open source platform. eBay’s goal is to provide a complete end-to-end service to e-merchants, bringing together local inventory data, discounts, pricing history, transactions & tools for payment with its auction platform


Most SME businesses aim to become more profitable through growth but cost reduction can yield better profitability with less business growth ‘stress’. Magento (a tool to increase sales) integrated with Sage 200 (a tool to manage stock levels, product information & business processes) yield business benefits throughout SME businesses. However, there has been a lack of integration tools to connect Magento & Sage 200, so E-creation has developed the Sage Magento Integration Connector 2011 (SMIC2011)…

SMIC2011 provides businesses running Sage 200 with the opportunity to rapidly deploy a fully functioning e-commerce website (in as little as 6 weeks) that integrate directly with the SQL database connected to Sage 200. This provides a rapid & robust way for a Magento e-commerce website to operate with virtually realtime pricing, stock managment, sales ledger & customer account information managed through Sage 200 (and with automation of order information & accounts synced back into Sage 200). With only 2 other companies in the UK able to offering a ‘connector’ product, E-creation was proud to launch┬áwww.directtableware.comin June, a highly complex B2B e-commerce site driven by SMIC 2011 (and for the site to start achieving sales in excess of ┬ú2,000 per day within two weeks).
