Purpose and scope
Your customers will reap more benefits from using your Aphix WebShop if they have an account. Having an account provides them with a WebShop dashboard from where they can quickly carry out many tasks, such as storing delivery and billing addresses, viewing online order history, storing favourites and building orders for future use.
Creating WebShop accounts is simple and fast.
In Aphix WebShop:
for B2B trade customers, your customers can automatically set up their WebShop account provided you have well-maintained customer contacts in your ERP
for all other customers, your customers can create a web account from the Login/Register page in your WebShop
In Aphix Management Interface:
for all customers, create and import a spreadsheet with your customer details (username and password)
This feature guide explains what you and your B2B and B2C customers do to create a WebShop account.
It defines integration points for supported ERP.
We are constantly extending integration between Aphix Digital Platform and its suite of products and your ERP.
We integrate with Intact V/X-Line, Intact iQ and SAP Business One to:

We currently do not integrate our B2B automatic account creation feature with Sage 200.
