ProductCart and StoneEdge

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - October 2010

Effective October 2010, we regret that we will no longer be supporting the StoneEdge integration with ProductCart! The information below will be left on the WIKI for a short time to assist any customers that are already in the process of using the two systems. We apologize for any inconvenience.


StoneEdge is an order management system that can help ProductCart users better manage orders when the ProductCart Control Panel is “not enough”. For example, StoneEdge allows you to consolidate order management across different sales channels: phone orders, fax orders, Internet orders, etc. It can also assist you in a scenario where you are running multiple Internet storefronts.

System Requirements

To use the StoneEdge with ProductCart you will need:

  • A valid StoneEdge license
  • A valid ProductCart license, and your store must be running version 3.1 or above.
  • The integration files. Contact ProductCart to obtain the latest files.

ProductCart Setup Instructions

To use StoneEdge with your ProductCart-powered store, follow these instructions.

Add the new files

  • Unzip the files that you obtained from StoneEdge, ProductCart, or your ProductCart reseller.
  • Locate the correct folder (Parent Paths Enabled or Parent Paths Disabled) based on your server settings.
  • Upload the files to their corresponding ProductCart folders. Remember that the “pcadmin” folder has very likely been renamed on your store. Therefore, make sure to rename it on your desktop before you begin the FTP transfer, or else your FTP software will create a new “pcadmin” folder on the Web server.

Update the database.

To update your store database, follow these steps:

  • Log into your ProductCart Control Panel
  • Replace the file name “menu.asp” in the browser address field with “upddb_STI.asp” and hit the “Enter” key on your keyboard.

Configure your StoneEdge settings

  • Log into your ProductCart Control Panel
  • Replace the file name “menu.asp” with “StoneEdgeManager.asp
    Bookmark this page in your browser so that you can quickly go back to it if you need to.
  • Fill out the required fields on the page:
    1. Turn on the service
    2. Enter a Cart ID/Username. It can be anything.
    3. Enter a Cart Password. It can be anything.
    4. Enter your Store Code: enter a numeric code to identify this store. This is used to handle a scenario in which you could have multiple ProductCart-powered storefronts and download orders into StoneEdge from all of them.
  • Write down the values used on this page because you will need them to setup your StoneEdge manager to communicate with ProductCart. The values must exactly match in the two applications for the two systems to communicate successfully.

StoneEdge Setup Instructions

Follow these instructions to configure your StoneEdge Order Manager so that it can exchange information with your ProductCart store.

    Note: If you are licensed to use only one type of shopping cart you do not see a drop down list: ProductCart is your default cart type.

  7. Enter your Cart Password. This is the password that you entered in the ProductCart Control Panel on the StoneEdge Manager page.

    2. Replace “productcart” with the name you have given to the ProductCart folder, in case you have renamed it.
