Data Syncing Using ERP

ERP Based Direct Data Sharing Now Available

The wait is finally over — seamless dropship integration in the form of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is finally here. The service is absolutely FREE  for Artisan Furniture customers.

ERP based data integration module connects your website or e-commerce accounts with our database. This includes product images and dimensions, product information, prices, stocks etc and is updated almost in real time. The integration will automatically cover any new products and information as well.

No more doubting whether your data is up to date, or worrying about accuracy. The future of dropship technology is here.

ERP currently works with the following,

  • Your website — ERP connects with your own website irrespective of the platform as long as you can provide us with a webhook. (Available now)
  • Shopify — As long as you have an account on Shopify (Available now)
  • Etsy — As long as you have an account on Etsy (Available by March 2022)
  • eBay — As long as you have an account on eBay (Available by March 2022)

The cons of ERP, as it currently stands now, are listed below.

  • Artisan Furniture cannot support you technologically on your side of your operations such as integrations on your end, development of the webhook, your system compatibilities, storage cost and management etc. These all need to set up by you, at your own cost and responsibility, to allow the ERP data flow to work.
  • In the unlikely event of multichannel partners like Shopify, Etsy and eBay declining our data syncing request, the flow of data would cease to work for that particular platform. This is unfortunately outside our control.
  • We are in the process of building a notification centre within ERP wherein any changes to the existing products will be automatically notified at your end. The system will show the products as “Not Synced” after changes unless you allow the data to be resynced.
  • All the information is shared as raw data and any beautification for your customers or website needs to be done at your end.
  • As is the case with new projects, please accept that some initial complications and bottlenecks may be present as we onboard customers into the ERP module. Rest assured that we will be handling all issues and streamlining the process as fast as we can. However, do note that the transition may not currently be completely smooth because this is a beta version. If you wish to directly use the finished version, you’re welcome to wait until early 2022 when we should have smoothened out any kinks and removed problems encountered in the beta version.

How the system works
  • Go to artisanflo.net
  • Type in your username & password. This would be the same as your trade account login details.
  • You’ll see three tabs on the top of the ERP page — Dashboard, Products and API Manager

Dashboard simply contains this guide and gives you an overview of the ERP process

API Manager is where the magic happens.

  • To start the sync process for Shopify, you need to enter the details of your Shopify account URL.
  • Then, the platform will prompt you to enter username and password details of your Shopify account.
  • Once connected, the products will automatically start syncing. The process may take a few hours to complete and you can see the progress for individual products under the Products
  • Products will be shown under “Draft” on your Shopify account. Once you convert the purchase prices to your selling prices, you may make them live and available for purchase.
  • To start the sync process for your website, you need to enter the webhook associated with your website.
  • The webhook will send a status code that lets your platform sync to ours.
  • Once connected, the products will automatically start syncing. The process may take a few hours to complete and you can see the progress for individual products under the Products
  • Products will be shown under “Draft” on your website. Once you convert the purchase prices to your selling prices, you may make them live and available for purchase.

Products lets you view all the products in the Artisan database.

  • You can view their stock level, estimated time of restocking, product dimensions, photos and other details.
  • Importantly, as soon as you sync your platforms with ERP on the API Manager page, the products will begin to sync automatically.
  • You can see the syncing progress for each product

Simple as that! You’ll now be completely synced with our servers and product information as well as stock information will be communicated almost at real time without needing manual intervention.
