Commerce

In the last article we managed to set up all commerce types and additional modules to import the data from our csv files. Now we need to do this regularly in order to provide users with the latest updates from our remote Hotellinx server.

In the last article, we programmed a new module which created CSV files from data on a different server. Now, we need to migrate this data into our live-system. As first step we need to create a commerce store to which our products and product variations belong. Otherwise, they cannot be imported.

The task was to integrate an ERP system (more specific Hotel management system called Hotellinx) which is (and should always stay or be) a single source of truth (SSOT) for the products they have and administer. If you want to sell these products from another system like a webshop you need to transfer the data there to showcase your goods to customers. Another way of explaining that is to say the webshop is only to make a purchase but all the data is stored to the ERP system or SSOT.
