Does FoxyCart produce any type of packing slip that can be printed and sent with shipped physical goods? I see "transactions" listed under reports, but given my cart is not operational, I cannot determine what a "transaction report" looks like or how they might be used. Thanks.

    Brian, you can select "test" transactions under the transaction report to see the details of your transactions which you process while using a test gateway. From there, you can export those transactions if you like. We don't do many "back-end" processes when it comes to running a business because in our experience, most web-based ecommerce systems that have attempted such things have been less than excellent at it. Customer mailing lists, accounting, inventory tracking, fulfillment... There are just too many varieties of companies and ways of doing these things to have a "one size fits all" approach.

    The way we decided to serve our customers is with our XML Datafeed (http://wiki.foxycart.com/docs:datafeed) so that you can integrate (http://wiki.foxycart.com/integration) with just about anything. We've designed it from the ground up with developers and designers in mind so there is no duplication of data and you have complete flexibility.

    That being said, we've been in contact with companies like ShipWorks to see if we can build a partnership and solve everyone's needs correctly.

    As far as the business goes, how are you currently managing shipping labels, cycle stock calculations, forcasting, inventory management, and the like?

    I know of at least one or two developers that built a basic packing slip print-out thing... check here for an example:

    If creating such a script is beyond your abilities let us know and we can direct you to some affordable FoxyCart developer that can help you get what you want.
