Integration and efficiency is the buzzword that all small business owners and aspiring online store/eCommerce entrepreneurs are looking for in 2022. Any advantage you can gain in an increasingly crowded online space is critical.
We’ll cover the following “do’s and don’ts” to getting your Sage 200 Evolution WooCommerce Integration right, first time:
Choosing which platform to use for your Sage 200 Evolution to WooCommerce sync can be challenging as there are many different platforms out there, and each one requires you, the merchant, to have a certain set of in-house skills or resources.
There’s no point in setting up a WooCommerce to Sage 200 Evolution data sync if there’s still manual labor involved (i.e the sync doesn’t cater for ALL the information to be sent between platforms). The Sync between Sage 200 Evolution and WooCommerce needs to cater for all the information so that data updates and order updates can be automated.
Product information needs to be comprehensive, so all the SKU details like stock, price, tax rates, product descriptions and more need to push to WooCommerce from Sage 200 Evolution.
Orders generated on WooCommerce need to be raised in Sage 200 Evolution with the right information so the merchant doesn’t need to log into Sage 200 and then also WooCommerce in order to fulfill the order. Order information like customer contact info, SKU items & quantities, discounts if applicable, delivery and billing addresses.
Remember, to automate the Sage 200 Evolution Sync with WooCommerce will be critical to free up time and nip data inaccuracies in the bud once and for all.
You’re in the middle of Black Friday or a long weekend, with orders flying in through your online store, the last thing you need is for the sync between Sage 200 Evolution and WooCommerce to break, meaning the stock and price won’t update on your website and customers pay for an item you no longer have stock of.
Choosing a platform that’s well supported and robust is critical to ensure the above doesn’t occur. Storehub.io has an easy-to-use interface as well as transparent reporting/logs whereby you can see exactly where the sync failure is, and what data caused it so you can repair it quickly.
Storehub.io has a range of tutorial videos to complement the easy to use dashboard, so you can manage the sync between Sage 200 Evolution and WooCommerce easily, without any specialised skills or resources. Storehub also offers live web chat support and telephonic support too.
Any merchant running a WooCommerce store needs to be backing up their WooCommerce store on a daily basis. As it’s built on open-source software, it’s particularly vulnerable to hacks and data corruption.
If your website goes down for 2 weeks while it gets rebuilt, the Sage 200 Evolution and WooCommerce sync will no longer matter as there’s no store to sync to. Storehub.io offers website backup & security packages to ensure, in the event of your site going down, we can recover the store within the hour.
