How does FTP integration works in Orderhive?

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used to transfer computer files between a client and server on a computer network.

With Orderhive's FTP integration, you can connect your warehouse's server or any other third-party server to enable easy import and export of data.

If you’re using Orderhive, FTP integration is particularly helpful when the channels you use don't integrate with Orderhive or APIs are not available to connect two systems/providers. FTP integration also works wonders when you intend to transfer files between your fulfillment center and Orderhive. 

Under FTP, we provide the below integrations:

  • Inventory import
  • Order export
  • Shipment import
  • Return order import 

To use any of the above integrations, go to Add Integrations page. Under FTP category, you’ll find these integrations.

You’ll need to provide some server information, preferred format (.json, xml), and other details. Orderhive will start transferring files once you’ve submitted all details.

Note: FTP integration is not very simple and requires some technical know how. In case you have trouble setting up FTP integrations, our technical team would be glad to help you with the setup. Please contact us on chat in software or on email : support@orderhive.com
