Sam at Stylecreep needed a solution to sync stock levels between his Opencart site and ChannelAdvisor. With a successful online business through the Stylecreep website he wanted to expand the offering into the marketplaces.
Opencart does not have an API as standard but a 3rd party extension is available, working with the extension developer we were able to extend this API to suit our needs.
Stylecreep now has a fully integrated stock and product flow between the two systems. Products are created in Opencart along with all their “child” variations and the stock levels are kept in line.
In this particular integration we had to keep track of sales in Opencart and feed the stock back to ChannelAdvisor as a stock adjustment rather than an order, this was to ensure stock levels were accurate without syncing the orders across to ChannelAdvisor.
Just wanted to say thanks for getting the sync sorted and the additional bits and bobs you worked in too. All appears to be working well this afternoon.
For enquiries about integrating either ChannelAdvisor or Opencart please get in touch.
