Why integrate Monstock to Prestashop ?
Any company owning an online shop and several digital tools to manage all the aspects (inventory, invoicing, accounting, etc.) needs to have an overview of all the data related to the orders in order to optimize the management. The Monstock / Prestashop integration allows you to centralize and synchronize these informations between the two platforms.
In order to manage the amount of orders from your e-commerce shop, you will be able to benefit from a high-performance connection of your information systems to quickly and securely manage tour orders and related data. You will thus automate the synchronization of flows and data of your customers thanks to the simple and instantaneous connection of the two solutions.
Prestashop is a CMS (Content Management System). This is a simple tool of creation and management of online store. This an opensource application that you become fully owner of, which allows you to adjust the solution to your needs by integrating the necessary tools for its proper management.
As Monstock, Prestashop is a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution, so you will not have to purchase any hardware or install any software in order to set up the integration.
Prestashop allows you to manage your product catalog in different shops at the same time, and with different prices. The integration with Monstock allows you to link all these stores and their orders in a single solution, for more simplicity and automation. You can thus manage the stocks of your different stores in complete safety, while avoiding inventory errors that could be detrimental to you.
How does it work ?
No module or application installation is required to set up your integration, everything is done thanks to the application's web service. Its deployment is quick and easy (find out How to integrate Prestashop with Monstock).
The integration sets up a two-way synchronization of products, equipment, orders, customers and categories which works as follows :
Product catalog :
The synchronization of products and equipment is bi-directional between Prestashop and Monstock. A product created in Monstock will be automatically added to Prestashop with all its information (price, stock level, dimensions, etc.) and vice versa. This saves you time and prevents errors in the information on product and equipment sheets.
Also in the event of updating a product sheet from Monstock or Prestashop, synchronization will update the two platforms instantly to have identical information in both solutions.
Customer orders :
When a sales order is placed from your online store, it is immediately sent to Monstock thanks to the connection between the two solutions. The status of the order is thus updated in real time. An order validated from Prestashop will therefore result in a "validated" order to be prepared in Monstock. Once its preparation has been validated in Monstock, the information is then fed back to Prestashop to allow you to notify your customers of the status of their order in real time.
As soon as an order is received in Monstock, the inevntory is impacted and as soon as the preparation is carried out, the status of the inventory is updated in Monstock and in real time in the e-commerce solution.
When a new customer is created in your online store, the bi-directional synchronization allows you to get your customer's file with all their data (contact details, etc.) in both solutions, with an update in real time.
The product categories created in Monstock are automatically synchronized with Prestashop : you do not need to sort your product catalog again from Monstock or Prestashop once the categories have been created in one of the two solutions.
