Looking to integrate our EDI system with Drupal Commerce and curious if there are any examples of this working out there. More importantly, wondering if it's possible to connect the two for a seamless 'communication' into an offline work flow that's already established for a client.

Can anyone shed some light on this execution being possible and any experiences with it?

Thank you.

I have a little experience with EDI. I wrote the 6.x version of the Ubercart EDI module. I am preparing to port that module to Drupal Commerce. I am mainly interested in the exporting of orders and sending them via FTP and Email. Let me know if you would like to collaborate.

Cheers,

Jon Antoine

I recently created a new project with working code. Check it out at https://drupal.org/project/commerce_export.

Hi Jon Antoine:

Is there some documentation for the new module? Also, does the Drupal Commerce export still support EDI? And lastly, does the module only do exports, or can it also handle imports in EDI format?

Thanks,

David

Hi David,

The module leverages Drupal's theming system using template files to control the output. This allows you to get whatever text based output is desired be it CSV, XML, etc. See the modules README.txt file for more information. There are also example rules. The module only does exports.
