Handling orders from resellers

Available in M2 extension version: 2.2.0 (March 2018)

Available in M1 extension version: 1.4.0 (May 2018)

If your Magento orders are generally placed by a reseller you will see all orders created against the reseller contact in Brightpearl. On the order recorded though, it will have the reseller as the billing name and address but the end customer as the delivery name and address.

One of the features of the Magento integration is that changes to customer details are recorded on the contact in Brightpearl, but in the case of a reseller, we don't generally want this to happen. To ensure the reseller details are maintained on the contact in Brightpearl, use the Export Order Interaction settings to configure the extension so that it doesn't update contact details:
