E-Commerce And Accounting Integrations - Addresses Discrepancy

Explanation of the limitation

With E-Commerce systems, we often find 3 addresses associated with an order:

1. Buyer's Billing Address
2. Buyer's Shipping Address
3. Order Shipping Address(This is specified by the buyer in the event they want to send the order as a gift to somebody else)

OneSaas has the ability to support all 3 addresses, however when it comes to Accounting systems, they typically only handle the Buyer's Billing and Shipping address. Orders do not have their individual shipping address.

As a result we do not recommend printing shipping labels from Accounting Systems without prior checking.

Specific examples


We cannot populate the 'Ship to' field on the Saasu invoice screen. This is because that field is not a simple text box, that field asks us to reference a contact record within the Saasu database.

So that means in order to populate the 'Ship to' field, we need to create a new contact record in Saasu that matches the invoice shipping data. Unfortunately we cannot do that because there's simply not enough consistent data passed to us from e-Commerce systems for that field. On top of that the e-Commerce system does not treat this invoice shipping address as a separate 'contact' entity. So essentially we have the potential to create junk contacts in your Saasu on a mass scale.
