We can help you connect your Magento store with PriceMinister so that you can easily sell your products on it right from your Magento store catalog and manage your sales within Magento store. Integration of PriceMinister with your web store offers seamlessly compatible user experience between marketplace and your web store. The process we followed in the admin panel for the integration was done in three sections: products, sales and dispatch.
The Products section was used to select the products from the list of available products to export them to PriceMinister platform.
The Sales section gives the access to the new sales of the PriceMinister to the merchant so that he can have a view of all the orders and ship the orders once accepted.
The Dispatch section added is used to enter the shipping details and informing the buyer of the Tracking Number, Tracking URL and name of the transporter.
Magento-PriceMinister integration requires a proper connection to be established between both the platforms for an efficient synchronization as well as flawless, smooth and uncompromised performance. This whole process of integration with PriceMinister is really a complex process and the developers faced various challenges during the API implementation.
The products that are to be exported to PriceMinister are sent in an xml format which should not exceed 30MB. So to overcome it, an error is to be returned if the file size exceeds 30MB.
The limitation of PriceMinister is that it cannot receive more than 10 files in an hour. So a column was created in the database which returned error if more than 10 files were uploaded by the merchant in an hour.
The major challenge was not being able to use the sandbox account during the API integration process and complete integration was done live.
