Octopus WooCommerce Integration

Question

I'm using Octopus for my point of sale system in my bike store.  Can you help me get Octopus integrated with my WooCommerce website?  I noticed you have what appears to be a very nice WooCommerce Integrator, and I'm hoping you can help.  Thank you.

 

Answer

Thank you for sending the link.  Yes, we’d be happy to work with you and Octopus to get this integration going with your website.  The following article describes your options around this integration:

I took a look at the Octopus website but could not find any information about an application programming interface (API) or import/export capabilities (however, I may have missed it).  However, I did notice that Octopus does have their own e-commerce solution.  Octopus looks like it also runs on an iPad which means they probably have an API.  If they do, then it would be fairly easy to get their API connected to our API.  If they don’t have an API, then we could always use Modern Retail's Inventory CSV/XML Uploader using FTP.  We have a variety of other methods that we’ve used over the years which we could use as well.

May I make a suggestion?  Could you please send an e-mail to your representative at Octopus and let them know you’re interested in getting their application integrated with WooCommerce?  If you copy me on the message, I’ll immediately reply asking to set up a meeting with Octopus.  Getting our developers to talk with their developers even for 30 minutes makes a huge difference and can really help to “jump start” the integration efforts.

Please let me know if you need anything else or would like to jump on a call before getting with Octopus.  Thank you.
