Using FTP

You can create an FTP client within your instance using the Salesforce B2C Commerce script class FTPClient. B2C Commerce also supports secure FTP (sFTP), which is recommended for moving files with sensitive information.

Using FTP to move data between merchant systems and B2C Commerce isn't secure, because the FTP connection isn't encrypted. FTP isn't recommended on staging or production systems, because the connection isn't PCI compliant, unless you write custom code to encrypt and decrypt the data before and after transfer.

Note: By default, the FTPclient get method uses the "ISO-8859-1" encoding. However, you can use an overloaded version of the method to specify UTF encoding instead.
