Script” or “Query” typically refers to a piece of code or a set of instructions written in a scripting or query language to perform specific tasks or operations within the Linnworks system. These scripts or queries can be used to automate various aspects of your eCommerce business, such as order processing, inventory management, and data analysis




Script is usually written in a language like C# or JavaScript and can be used to create custom functions and automation rules. For example, you can write a script to automatically calculate shipping costs, update product prices, or send email notifications when specific conditions are met. Scripts are a powerful way to extend the functionality of Linnworks and tailor it to your specific business needs.


Query often refers to database queries, typically written in SQL (Structured Query Language). These queries are used to retrieve, update, or manipulate data stored in the Linnworks database. You can use queries to generate custom reports, extract specific data, or make bulk updates to your inventory or order information.
Both scripts and queries in Linnworks allow you to customize and optimize your eCommerce operations, making it a versatile platform for managing and growing your online business. However, it’s important to have some programming and database query knowledge or access to developers who can create and maintain these scripts and queries effectively.
