Which stock items are synchronised from Mamut to Magento?
M-Shop will ask the stock details for every product that is connected to Mamut in Magento. When the total stock is calculated, Magento will see which orders are not yet known in Mamut. The number of products that are ordered in Magento, but are not yet sent to Mamut, will be subtracted from the stock. This way, your stock will always be up-to-date.
How often can the stock be synchronised?
We advise our customers to manually upload the stock data the first few times. That way you will know how much time a full synchronisation will take. Depending on the number of products, the amount of pending orders and the speed of your Magento environment this proces can take between 1 and 30 minutes. When it’s clear how fast your environment is, we can then decide how often your M-Shop can be configured to synchronize. The duration of the synchronization is displayed during the actual synchronization process.
What product data can be sent from Mamut to Magento?
We’ve chosen let a big part of the product data management take place in Magento. Magento guarantees an optimal online performance to your customers and to Google. That’s why only the basic product information is sent to Mamut:

- Product TAX
- In what webshops the product should be visible

Yes, there are settings in the M-Shop pannel that let you enable Mamut to create invoices or orders based on the incoming Magento orders.
How are discounts dealt with?
Magento uses discounts as a percentage and fixed discounts. Discounts as a percentage are directly adopted in Mamut. On a 10 euro order with 20 discount, the order rule in Mamut will have a base price of 10 euro with a discount percentage of 20. On fixed discounts a new base price will be place in Mamut. On a 10 euro order with a 2 euro disount, the base price in Mamut will be 8 euro and the discount will not be shown.
Can I synchronize configurable products?
Yes, if the underlying SKU numbers of the configurable products are known in Mamut, the connection will work in the same way as it does for simple products.
How are my orders connected to the correct relation ID's?
When creating and matching clients there are 2 important checks made. First of all, M-Shop will see if there’s a Magento ID of the relation known in Mamut. When a Magento ID is not found, the e-mail address will be used to find an existing relation. When this address is found somewhere in Mamut, a match is made on that relation. WHen there are no corresponding relations found, a new client card is made in Mamut.

How can I best deal with direct debits?
For direct debits, all the data is correctly stored in Magento. When transferring this data to Mamut, some problems will occur:
- Mamut will stick to old bank account numbers in it’s database. The only way to remove those is by overwriting them in the database, by which Mamut information is lost. The risk of losing information is not one we like to take.
- Mamut does not track for each order whether it should be collected, possibly causing wrong debits. When a customer has made two orders in a short timespan with different bank account numbers, Mamut should collect both debts on the latest bank account. The risk of making wrong debits is not one we like to take.
For these two reasons we advice our clients to leave the debt collecting to Magento, making sure the right order- and bank information is used.
Can all Magento extensions work with M-Shop?
Some Magento extensions make their own database fields in your Magento webshop database. These database fields will not be included in the M-Shop connection. M-Shop can be extended to suit your needs. An estimation of the needed investment for this can be given in advance.
