About this project
- Project Type Feature development
This was a referral project, from a previous client I had worked for. The project scope was rather complex. They ran a very large e-bay retailer, specializing in watercraft products, with an inventory of over 2000 products. They also owned a woo-commerce based website, where they wanted to offer the same products. Rather than having to build and maintain a list of their inventory separately, they wanted the ability to automate the process. This meant not only importing all 2000+ items from e-bay, but also synchronizing inventory between platforms. They also wanted to setup custom shipping fees based on product weight and shipping country, something woo-commerce does not facilitate out of the box. Finally, they also wanted to synchronize their woo-commerce installation with ShipStation, which is a 3rd party API that generates shipping labels, tracking information and shipment of orders. It was no easy task to achieve all of this, but we were able to achieve all of these tasks, which made the retailing process infinitely easier for the client.
