Example Sales Integration

If you want to create Sales Orders in Vinsight, here is an example of the data you will want to POST to our API.

It is more data that strictly necessary to create an Order but also includes data to make a better user experience eg see the order url from the system the order originated in.

Here is a fairly minimum POST:

POST https://app.vinsight.net/SalesOrders

        "ContactNum": 41,
        "InvoiceDate": "2022-08-25T00:00:00+14:00",
        "OrderReference": "Your preferred Square Invoice Ref",
        "Categories": "source:Square;channel:POS;",
        "DateRequired": "",
        "DeliveryName": "Bobby Brown",
        "DeliveryAddress": "",
        "DeliverySuburb": "",
        "DeliveryCity": "",
        "DeliveryRegion": "NSW",
        "DeliveryPostCode": "",
        "DeliveryCountry": "Australia",
        "DeliveryEmail": "",
        "DeliveryPhone": "",
        "DeliveryInstructions": "",
        "CurrencyNum": 1,
        "PaymentTermDescription": "",
        "DatePaymentDue": "",
        "DatePaid": "",
        "Comments": "",
        "CurrencyRate": 1,
        "DivisionNum": 1,
        "Items": [{
                "Description": null,
                "Quantity": 1,
                "UnitOfMeasureCode": "12x750ml",
                "UnitPrice": 192,
                "Discount": 0,
                "SalesTaxRateValue": 0.10,
                "SalesTaxRateNum": 1,
                "PriceDescription": null,
                "CurrencyNum": 1,
                "StockItemNum": 1,
                "Sort": 0
        "Aliases": [{
                //Vinsight Type
                "EntityType": "SalesOrder",
                "Domain": "Square",
                //Square Merchant Id
                "SubDomain": "2RNAQEEXAMPLE",
                //Square Type
                "DomainEntityType": "Order",
                //Square Order Id
                "DomainEntityId": "807269269574",
                //Square Order Display Num or orderreference if any
                "DomainEntityCode": "#1003",
                //url to Square order
                "DomainEntityUrl": "https://my-store.myshopify.com/admin/orders/123456789",
                //Sqaure datemodified or similar
                "DomainData": "{\"UpdatedAt\":\"2022-01-13T22:20:06-05:00\"}"

NB: Remember to remove the comment lines from the above example as json does not allow comments.

You will need to pre-lookup and cache on your server (or create the references for) the following data:

  • ContactNum:  eg GET /Contacts.json?$filter=ContactCode eq ‘Bob Brown’ OR Email eq ‘abc@example.com’&$select=ContactNum,ContactCode,FirstName,LastName,Email
  • CurrencyNum: eg  GET /Currencies.json?$filter=CurrencyCode eq ‘AUD’&$select=EntryNum,CurrencyCode
  • DivisionNum: GET /Divisions.json?$filter=DivisionCode eq ‘Wine’&$select=EntryNum,DivisionCode
  • SalesTaxRateNum: GET /TaxRates.json?$filter=Code eq ‘GST’&$select=EntryNum,Code
    //Get many items matching either their code or alias codes from other systems by making an array of strings to match and search both the Contact Code and any “Aliases” that are configured for those codes
  • StockItemNum: /StockItems.json?$filter=contains(new[’15ABC-PinotGris-1.5L’,’15CHEFGH’],StockItemCode) or Aliases/Any(EntityType eq ‘SalesOrder’ and contains(new[’15ABC-PinotGris-1.5L’,’15CHEFGH’],DomainEntityCode))&$select=StockItemNum,StockItemCode

You can test both POST and GETs in our API page:  https://app.vinsight.net/ApiRequests?view-mode=create
