Setting up Automated File Imports and Exports

An FTP (File Transfer Protocol) will need to be set up in order for you to use this.

In ChannelGrabber, navigate to Settings > Advanced > FTP Accounts and select 'New Account'

You can also set up an email account in the Advanced Settings section which will allow you to export your Orders or Products direct to your email address.

Once you have set up your FTP and/or Email account, navigate to Settings > Scheduled Exchange and set up your exchange rules as needed.
