Data Feed Integration – DSDO, DOBA and Dropship Commerce

Case Study: Shopping Cart Product Feed Integration: CS-Cart

For this case study we are going to talk about how we took multiple product feeds and integrated them into a multi-location shopping cart system online.

Client: Pet Depot

Data Feed Format: e-DSS

Shopping Cart: CS-Cart

Scope of Work: Integrate various vendor product feeds (e.g. Lone Star) based on Pet Depot franchise location. Push/pull inventory and images on a daily basis. Import / Export orders on re-occuring basis. 

The project focused on three pieces for allowing drop shipping integration into CS-Cart:

  • Product Data Import and Updates by individual feed (including product images and deleting old images)
  • Regular Inventory Updates and logic on the shopping cart side to turn on or off products with zero inventory (or display out of stock to keep the urls for SEO)
  • Order Processing, Notifications, Fulfillment and Invoicing.
