We have a Shopify store where we sell both through dropshipping and with products purchased and stocked. Looking ahead, we want to expand our dropshipping operations and have a seamless system. Currently, with the few partners we work with, we exchange order data on an FTP server.
In order to automate order data synchronization, we are either looking for an app or to develop an api.
Ex, for a specific case, a supplier we want to synchronize with has their own Shopify store + a plugged logistic partner.
We have 2 solutions :
- Connect with their existing Shopify store, so every order placed on our store is synchronized with their existing database.
- Connect with their logistics partner.
What would you recommend, and how could we do so ?
Hi Alexis, I hope you're having a great day! Thank you for sharing your current situation. It's fantastic that you're looking to expand your dropshipping operations and streamline your processes.
The solutions you mentioned are indeed viable options; however, there could be other possibilities worth considering (like custom integration with supplier APIs, centralized order management system.etc.). Anyway, before making any concrete recommendations, we need to have a more in-depth conversation to understand better the current state of things, your specific needs, challenges, and long-term goals.
Feel free to contact me at your convenience to have a more in-depth conversation.
