Iceshop launches a new add-on, an Icecat Shopify connector. This in addition to existing ones for Prestashop, Magento, and WooCommerce. These connectors not only link the most popular e-commerce platforms to PIM environments but also automate the import of Icecat product content. For example, product images, specifications, digital assets, and descriptions. All products are automatically enriched with product content on a daily base. Except for products for which a content lock is configured.
Why content integration?
A merchant needs content integration to connect its e-commerce site with its other online sales channels. And to connect back-end systems such as an ERP, or PIM with front-end systems such as a Point-Of-Sale system. A connector makes it possible to exchange information seamlessly between all such systems. As a result, an e-commerce business saves time, money, and makes fewer human errors as all manual tasks are automated.
For example, a retailer can keep track of the price. But, also how much inventory he has of each product in the ERP system. For example, if they sell a product online, the stock quantity needs to real-time adjusted. Without integration, one has to change inventory counts in both systems manually. But, with integration, inventory numbers are synchronized automatically.
What exactly do you want to achieve?
First, map out your goal. What exactly do I want to achieve? Before you build a website and everything that comes with it, it is good to first think about the following points: Who is the target group? What exactly do I want to achieve? Or sell? What options should be available? When did I reach my goal?
