Watch the Demo Video
Automatically link Magento and Vend
Fooman Connect provides a two way integration of product and inventory data between Xero and Vend (including stock levels).
Stay on top of your business by streamlining inventory management, and save hours of wasted time spent syncing data manually.
Fine grained options put the control in your hands
You control the import/export process. Choose to import/export automatically in real time (eg. on sale or on product change), to run on a schedule (eg. daily import/export), or to import/export manual.
Easy to use
Set up and control the export process all from your Magento backend - no separate logins or interfaces required.
Fooman Connect is easy to set up with our comprehensive user documentation and video set up guide.
All data transfers are protected by secure, high grade encryption.

What are the system requirements for running Fooman Connect: Vend?
To securely transfer your data, your php version must be able to support openssl. Most websites meet this requirement, but please ask your hosting company if in doubt.
Is Fooman Connect: Vend suitable for multiple store set ups?
Fooman Connect: Vend links your Magento store to one Vend outlet. If you have multiple Vend outlets, you can choose to connect your Magento store with the main outlet (eg. warehouse outlet), or an online outlet. If you are using a Magento multi store set up, Fooman Connect: Vend maps all websites to your chosen Vend outlet. It is not possible to manually exclude any websites from your multi store set up.
Can I use Fooman Connect: Vend as a one way integration (eg. only from Vend to Magento, or vice versa)?
Absolutely! When you configure Fooman Connect, you can choose to set up only the import or export function. You don't need to make use of the two way integration functionality if this doesn't suit your requirements.
Can I use Fooman Connect: Vend to set up a brand new Vend store?
Yes – you can quickly and easily export all products from your Magento store to Vend, which makes Fooman Connect: Vend ideal for setting up a brand new Vend store.
Why is Fooman Connect: Vend marked as a beta release?
Vend itself has not yet published a complete and stable API (application processing interface), which is used by Fooman Connect to integrate with your Vend store. This is the same situation for all Vend add ons and is nothing specific to Fooman Connect. Read more on the Vend website.
Are there any known conflicts between Fooman Connect: Vend and other Magento extensions?
There are no known conflicts.
Can I use the extension with Magento Enterprise?
No - the extension has not yet been fully tested with Magento Enterprise, so we don't recommend using it.
