Partner Integration Process
There are various stages to completing a platform partnership integration, however they all fall within four elements. These elements are the fundamentals that allow a retailer to sell easily on Fruugo via the partnership integration. The four elements are:
- Product Inventory Feed
- Stock Status API
- Order Management API
It is using these four elements that will provide the retailer with the maximum functionality for selling on Fruugo, however depending on the nature of the platform partnership the integration may only complete 2 or 3 of these elements. For a multi-channel dispatch platform may not cover the inventory feed, or a feed management agency may not cover order management.
