How Channergy works with Magento
Channergy downloads orders from your Magento store automatically at the intervals you set (e.g., every 15 minutes). As you sell products on any channel, all your stores will be updated to reflect the new quantities available as well as any changes to descriptions, prices etc. through Channergy. At the end of each day when your shipping software writes back to Channergy it will update your Magento store with the ship date and tracking number for each order so your customers can log in and see their order status.
Channergy interfaces with Magento through its Multi Channel Manager (MCM).
