Managing Orders Using XML-files

You can use XML files to batch your work. It is convenient when you need to place multiple orders at once or when the Internet is intermittent. In this case, you can prepare the files offline and upload them to eTXT afterwards.

To create new orders using XML files, go to the order placement form: Orders widget > Create order. On the order placement page, click on the link Upload XML-package of orders.

Select the project folder, specify the XML file to upload and click the "Upload" button.

Your orders will be placed in the system.


Managing orders using XML files is only available for eTXT clients with a rating of 100 or more.
