- Imports Products
- Imports Orders
- Updates Tracking Numbers & Despatch Status
Note: Volusion only allows one time access to order data via its API, as such if orders are found where products do not exist on Mintsoft then they will automatically get created at the point of import to prevent the order getting stuck in limbo.
It is also not possible to retrieve customers email addresses with this integration.
