All For Funds
The client runs a consignment business, using CrossPostIt to sell her items on a number of marketplaces. She wasn’t happy with the Storefront site offered and wanted her own custom eCommerce site.
Consignment is very different than standard commerce. Generally, you only have one of any given item. This presented unique challenges that had to be overcome. We weren’t worried, because we love conquering these types of challenges.
Work We Performed:
- CrossPostIt API Integration
- Custom Plugin Development
- Third-Party Plugin Customization
- Back-End Programming (PHP)
- Theme: OCIN
- Archived Post Status
- WP Lister (for eBay)
- Cart Stock Reducer
The Problem We Faced!
Oh boy, where do we begin? CrossPostIt (previously SellerVantage) offers an API, but the API wasn’t designed for what the client wanted to accomplish. Before we could begin development, we had to find solutions for many hurdles.
The first hurdle was how to pull data from CrossPostIt and create products within WooCommerce. However, the API didn’t provide all the critical data we needed. So we improvised!
We had to reach out to CrossPostIt and request adjustments to their API. Without the requested adjustments, there was no way to accomplish the client’s goals. Fortunately, CrossPostIt implemented the adjustments and we were in business!
