The connector between ApparelMagic and Le New Black allows you to create and update your data in one click. Our ApparelMagic full package includes 6 flows: Products, Prices, Images, Retailers, Inventory and Orders.
To facilitate the integration, it's possible to set up a frequency to exchange the data automatically with no manual action required. Contact your account manager to set up the automatic trigger. You still have the possibility to execute one of these tasks manually whenever you want.

Why I cannot export some orders ?
The common error when orders cannot be exported is that the reference is missing on the retailer profile. You may enter the retailer profile to add the missing information on Le New Black and ApparelMagic.
Afterwards, you have to change the Integration status of your order because when there is an error in the orders export, Le New Black will automatically block the order.
