dJAX provides expert integration using Shopify API, SDKs and Notification frameworks. a general challenge that is faced by eCommerce websites is that when the site grows beyond capabilities of the default Shopify features it becomes increasingly difficult to handle operations. Once the store attains that particular level of it will become a mandatory requirement to to integrate with different applications that provide the required services. Like shipping providers, SMS gateways, products, customers and other systems. Integration with the required functionalities without any hassle for consistent growth in the e-commerce operation. Shopify’s API implements JSON to manipulate each API resource in isolation, providing a RESTful interface, and dJAX implements API to integrate a third-party application with the web shop. The Shopify App Store is great if a reliable application can be found that does exactly what is required, however, if the users have a different requirement or want to do something slightly different there is a need to need to develop a custom app and dJAX are the experts in developing it for meeting business requirements.
Being a managed eCommerce platform with numerous APIs, the integration can improve the efficiency of operation related to the store growth and performance. The development cost and time would have been a lot more than what is now for stores on the platform. API integration saves a great time and development cost for ecommerce stores.
In the case of incorporating data manually and for building functions from scratch, there is an increased probability of coding errors that may take a lot of effort and time to check and address. This is where API integration helps in delivering better shopping experience by allowing access to data and features.
Effective API integration with the required features helps eCommerce stores to get access to the leading analytics engines and intelligent services based on latest technologies like artificial intelligence and Machine Learning. Thanks to sophisticated APIs for analytics and data-driven decision-making tools, eCommerce stores can be more equipped for decision making and strategy. dJAX handles exporting the eCommerce data to Google BigQuery and it can be also be visualized in Data Studio.
There are five key integration points available with the platform for customized solutions. In most cases, you will end up using a combination of them to achieve the desired outcome.
This is the key integration point that allows to access all data within a store and create or modify a restricted set of data, and in 99% of the backend, integrations will be the core of the solution. The Shopify API is RESTful – which means that most other systems are able to communicate easily with the Shopify API.
These are real-time notifications that can be sent from the to external systems to notify that an action has occurred e.g. a new order has been made, or a new customer been created. This is a very effective mechanism for real-time updates e.g. executing real-time order fulfilment or keeping customer data up to date in an external CRM.
This is a relatively new library that allows embedding the store on another website e.g. WordPress blog. The WordPress Shopify plugin that has been released within the last couple of weeks uses this SDK. Previously, the alternative to this was to redirect back to Shopify using the cart and line item properties.
This is similar to the JS SDK in terms of functionality and is available natively for both iOS and Android. Do any mobile integration with Shopify from a user perspective this is the library to use.
This integration allows to use own hosted payment page and gateway to accept payments from customers, which is useful if you are using a gateway that has not been included into the current Shopify platform.
This integration reduces manual processing time and human error, and at volumes of hundreds or thousands of orders per day can be a very effective time saver for online store and improve customer service levels.
This is a more unique piece dJAX did a few years ago to integrate the recurring payment gateway with a paid annual membership, and then updating prices of products in the store based on the membership level purchased (i.e. pricing tiers).
This is a scenario similar to the third-party logistics integration. This workflow can be used to follow up customers that may want to repurchase from you and is ideal for selling products that can be continually reused without requiring significant variation (e.g. nappies, washing powder or other consumable products).
