Integrations with different shopping carts are heavily requested by many of our customers both old and new, so HubLogix is pleased to announce our integration with 3dcart! This marks our fourth integration with a major shopping cart!
With 3dcart, existing customers looking to expand to new store fronts have the option of working with a great, easy-to-use shopping cart platform with a ton of built-in features. It’s also an exciting time to start using 3dcart considering they have a new version being released pretty soon.
What does 3dcart + HubLogix entail?
With HubLogix, current 3dcart users have the ability to manage inventory and automate the more tedious aspects of their eCommerce experience. Once connected, HubLogix will automatically import your products from 3dcart. Then, you’ll be able to add suppliers who provide dropshipping or third-party fulfillment into HubLogix as vendors. After that, HubLogix will do the heavy lifting of keeping your store’s inventory information (such as quantity and SKU) in sync with that of your suppliers, or what we call “vendors” in HubLogix. With respect to orders, HubLogix gives you either the ability to manually send them to suppliers or take care of that for you auto-magically! 🙂
For our current users not on 3dcart looking to experiment with different storefronts to expand operations, you now have the option to experience 3dcart! No need to make a new account though; since HubLogix is now multichannel, you can use your existing inventory with any new storefront you set up on 3dcart. And we encourage you to do so! The team at 3dcart has worked thoughtfully to come up with a suite of built-in features to make setting up your store easily…and with HubLogix, you can put it on autopilot™! The link to our app in 3dcart will be available soon, but in the meantime you can signup here.
HubLogix is a platform for online retailers that don’t keep their own inventory, but instead rely on third-party vendors, drop-shippers, and fulfillment centers. The software integrates with the leading shopping cart platforms, like Shopify, Magento, and BigCommerce to seamlessly automate inventory management and order routing. With its easy self-service setup and affordable Pay as You Grow™ pricing, HubLogix users spend less time managing their online store, giving them more time to grow their business! Founded in 2011, HubLogix is backed by 500 Startups. HubLogix is headquartered in Atlanta, GA.
3dcart is one of the most well-established names in e-commerce platforms for SMBs. While supporting thousands of successful online stores, 3dcart is a customizable solution that’s easy to customize, offers real-time shipping solutions, as well as SEO and social/mobile commerce options. 3dcart was founded by Gonzalo Gil, who thought he would compile many of the commonly requested eCommerce features into a simple and affordable shopping cart.

We’re very excited to announce our first integration with inventory optimization software. Lokad Salescast makes it easy to decide which points in time to reorder products, as well as determine optimal quantities to order using its forecasting tech. By taking out the manual entry portion of the process, Lokad Salescast enables your store to optimize efficiently as it scales!
Much like our integration features for exporting items for certain shopping carts such as Shopify or BigCommerce, the ability to export to Lokad will also exist.
It’s a two step process, with very little extra work on your part after the initial setup!
First, in HubLogix, simply go to the “Vendors” tab and select “Vendor SKUs” from the navigation bar. Then, in the sidebar, press the “Show Options” link under the “Export Products” section of the sidebar.
The next step is to choose a date range that applies and select “Lokad Salescast” as the desired export format. With regards to date range, for higher accuracy, it’s better to use a range of 6 months or more.
After pressing the “Export” button, a link to the file (which will save as “Lokad_Items.csv”) will appear. It’s important to remember not to change this filename before importing it into Lokad.
Now, you must download the corresponding Orders export file for Lokad Salescast. To do so, go to the Orders tab. Similar to above, press the “Show options” link under the “Export Orders” section of the sidebar, select the same date range as above and select “Lokad Salescast” as the desired format once again. This time, the generated link will save as “Lokad_Orders.csv”.
It’s now time to complete the Lokad end of things. First, login to Lokad and select the “Files” tab. From there, you can upload the two files that have been exported to Lokad.
After the files have been uploaded, go back to the “Salescast” tab in Lokad. From there, simply adjust configuration settings as desired. When you are ready, you can hit “Start project” and Salescast will begin analyzing your order and product data.
And that’s it! After following the above steps, you’ll be ready to start using Lokad!
If you have any questions on preparing files for export to Lokad, feel free to contact our support team. If you have any questions specific to Lokad Salescast, you can reach out to them as well.

“This is a great opportunity for both companies,” says Josh Haynes, Director of Fulfillment for Alive. “Through HubLogix we are able to expand our offerings to a variety of shopping cart solutions, while they gain a trusted fulfillment center that they can refer to their clients.”

A few weeks ago, we rolled out automated Amazon FBA integration based on customer demand. Now that it’s been tested out in the wild, we want to get the word out about one of our most commonly requested features!
What is FBA, you ask? Well, Amazon’s famous for their near-superhuman logistics expertise, and with Fulfillment by Amazon, they’re letting smaller and niche retailers in on the magic. When you use FBA, you let Amazon stock your items and handle shipping and returns. When you receive an order, you send it to Amazon’s warehouses and they will ship it out. Your products can also be eligible for Amazon Super Saver Shipping and Amazon Prime benefits.
And now while Amazon efficiently takes care of your physical fulfillment woes, HubLogix can plug directly into it and automate the rest of your logistics, too. This means you can use Amazon FBA with all your online stores, whether that’s Shopify, Magento, BigCommerce, or 3dcart.
While you sit back and relax, HubLogix automates Amazon FBA integration in three easy steps:
Inventory HubLogix makes sure the inventory levels on all of your products in all of your stores are up-to-date and synced with your FBA inventory.
Order Routing Orders pouring in from all of your sales channels are directed to HubLogix, which takes these orders and automatically sends them to the Amazon’s warehouse.
Shipment Tracking The warehouse receives the orders and sends back tracking information. HubLogix automatically tracks the orders and notifies you when they’ve been shipped.
And thus, the order lifecyle is complete, all without you even lifting a finger!
If you’re an existing FBA customer and want to get directly integrated through HubLogix, just contact us at email@example.com and we’ll get you started right away. Try it out and tell us what you think!

Up to 33% of retailers use dropshipping as their primary method of fulfillment. On Amazon, 34% of the products sold are dropshipped.
This comes as no surprise to the team here at HubLogix. We work hard every day to improve the ecommerce experience for internet retailers, and dropshipping is a huge piece of that. We also know that when you dropship, finding a reliable, trustworthy supplier is imperative to your success.
That’s why when Honest Green contacted us with a partnership opportunity, we jumped at the chance.
Honest Green is the leading supplier of green products in the US. They have the largest selection of environmentally-conscious products out of any supplier, and they add hundreds of new ones every month. They also have a high-quality, descriptive product feed and responsively updated inventory to allow you to easily keep track of their extensive earth-friendly offerings.
As if that wasn’t already enough, they provide even more resources to help run online stores – from social media content to ready-made, categorized store inventories, they’re in tune with what retailers want. That’s why when they saw the features that HubLogix offers, they realized that they could further enhance their services and make their retailers’ lives easier.
By integrating directly with HubLogix, now any retailer on a leading shopping cart platform can quickly and easily extend their offerings with Honest Green’s excellent selection of quality green products. Not only that, Honest Green can now offer all of their customers the automated order management, inventory level syncing, and shipment tracking services that HubLogix provides.
The teams at HubLogix and Honest Green are excited be able to level the logistics playing field, and to help make dropshipping hassle-free. Together, we’re helping more retailers compete online.

Here at HubLogix, we are always working to make your dropshipping and fulfillment experience better. One of the most important concerns e-tailers have with outsourcing their fulfillment is finding a reliable logistics partner. This decision could mean the difference between a happy customer referring your business to their friends and an angry one who tweets about an awful experience. That’s why we have spent some time looking into great fulfillment solutions. To that end, we are excited to announce a promising new partnership: HubLogix and TAGG Logistics are teaming up to make order processing and inventory tracking easier than ever before.
TAGG Logistics is one of the nation’s most reliable and transparent third-party logistics providers. Their order fulfillment services are top-notch, from keeping inventory updated for you to custom packaging and prompt delivery. With facilities located in St. Louis, Missouri, and in Reno, Nevada, TAGG Logistics works closely with its clients to identify specific requirements and implement the most effective order fulfillment solutions.
We’re thrilled to be a partner with one of the premier e-fulfillment providers in the industry. Online retailing often requires several software platforms to seamlessly pass information back and forth. A critical part of this process is having TAGG’s warehouse management system (WMS) communicate with its client’s e-commerce platform to manage things like inventory levels, order flow, back orders, and returns processing. HubLogix will enable online retailers to more reliably put their store on autopilot by closely integrating its ecommerce software with TAGG’s warehouse management system, linking it to the e-tailer’s shopping cart.
“eCommerce fulfillment continues to be one of our fastest growing service segments,” said Tod Yazdi, Principal of TAGG Logistics. “Our clients are online retailers. We hold their inventory and ship their ecommerce orders directly to the consumer.” TAGG’s partnership with eCommub’s software platform will give our collective clients access to additional tools to manage inventory and online orders.
After many conversations about our partnership, both our team and TAGG’s agree that the best way to serve you is to work with you as a partner when providing fulfillment services. By outsourcing to a logistics expert like TAGG, your products get stored, distributed and fulfilled more efficiently, you will have fewer headaches and more time to devote to the core aspects of your business.
