I've an ERP software which is used by car spare parts dealers. The dealers who are using our software are running their e-commerce websites which are built on the shopify platform. It’s desired to build a seamless integration between both the systems which will leverage the dealers to share the inventory between both the systems. Today, the dealers manually create their products in their Shopify store and they have to update the inventory manually in both systems. I'm looking for an automated way of pushing the inventory from our software to the shopify store without any hassle.
From what you're describing, using webhooks would be a good starting point. It is a system used to sync Shopify with you system and notify about changes in the Shopify platform to another system. Here's a link with more in-depth information about webhooks: https://shopify.dev/apps/webhooks.
