Hi there. I'm curious if your extension for WooCommerce could help me with my shop. For a customer, I have to build a WooCommerce Shop including an integration of his POS “FileWorker.” FileWorker can offer an XML on a server and article images in a folder and needs orders in the same format (XML). Is it possible to use your program to integrate the XML with the products at least once a day automatically and create the orders as an XML also once a day? Thanks for your help and best regards.
Thank you for your interest in Modern Retail and our WooCommerce Integrator. Yes, this is exactly how it works with the exception of images. Let me explain.
We have something we call our CSV/XML Updater which allows you to send product catalog updates via FTP/SFTP. We can also create CSV/XML files of your orders which you can pick up from the same FTP site. As you send us updated files, we’ll parse the data and update WooCommerce accordingly. You can read about this CSV/XML Updater here:
In case you’re wondering how all this works with WooCommerce, you can read about it here:
This leads me to your question about images. We don’t yet support the sending of images over FTP; you will need to upload them directly in WooCommerce as explained above.
Regarding your question about the frequency, while once a day will certainly work, you’re welcome to send product updates as frequently as every 30 minutes and grab new orders every 30 minutes as well.
Please let me know if you have any more questions; I’d be happy to jump on a call with you. Thanks.
