Smiffy’s data integration with Opencart store
Smiffy’s, one of the UK’s largest fancy dress, Halloween and carnival manufacturing companies provide their retailers APIs for accessing Smiffy’s products with all options. An OpenCart Expert have recently integrated Smiffy’s data feeds with an OpenCart store of one of their retailers.
This allows live stock level updates for retailers’ store. Since Smiffy’s also provide API for order fulfilment, we can manage order placement on an OpenCart store by sending customer orders to Smiffy’s in real-time. We can also provide option for OpenCart store admin to track status of the orders placed via the Smiffy’s order fulfilment API.
By integrating OpenCart store with Smiffy’s data feeds, retailers can save a lot of time currently spent on manual order processing and products management on their store. Another advantage is to show actual stock levels for products.
Since Opencart framework is quite flexible in integrating with other stores, this can be done for any other store that provides APIs for accessing their products database.
