Hi, I have a customer looking to integrate an eCommerce website with SambaPOS Point of Sale. They are looking to use either Opencart or WooCommerce. Is this something you could accomplish?
If you haven't heard of SambaPOS before, here's a little excerpt from their website:
SambaPOS is a Free Restaurant POS Software. It runs on your PC and supports most POS components such as touch screens, tablets and thermal printers. SambaPOS is actively running on thousands of restaurants from more than 50 countries. It is translated to 18 languages, and we have more than 1000 downloads each month. Fully optimized for fast and easy production usage. Very flexible to fit to your business ideas.
As you can see they are a completely open source point of sale system for the restaurant industry. Please let me know if you can help me and my client. Thank you.
We would love to help you get your WooCommerce website integrated with SambaPOS (sorry we don’t support Opencart today). The following article describes your options around this integration:
I took a look at the SambaPOS website but could not find any information about an application programming interface (API) or import/export capabilities (however, I may have missed it). If SambaPOS has an API, then it would be fairly easy to get their API connected to our Middleware/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 also try.
I suspect you’re also interested in how the integration works from the WooCommerce side, so please read:
You’ll find we’re experts at POS and ERP integrations; it’s something we've been doing for over a decade and have amassed a great deal of knowledge and technology. Here are just some of the articles we could share with you:
- Avoid Overselling (Allocation) - Absolutely a brilliant feature!
- Difference Engine
- 100% Inventory Accuracy
- Connecting Disparate Systems
- Integrating Existing Products
You’ll love our WooCommerce Integrator Dashboard, which gives you an overview of the status of your integration.
May I make a suggestion? Could you please e-mail your representative at SambaPOS and let them know you’re interested in getting SambaPOS integrated with your website? If you copy me on the message, I’ll immediately reply asking to set up a meeting with SambaPOS. 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 SambaPOS. Thank you.
