Flexibility is crucial in modern ecommerce platforms, stores need to utilize technology to address business needs that may not be available out-of-the-box. Comrogen’s plugin system makes adding new features and functionality extremely easy and intuitive by eliminating the need to modify core source and making sure upgrades to newer version do not break plug-in functionality.
The plugin system works at three levels: web services (api), back-end, and front-end. This means you can create plug-ins that work at the customer facing side (website e.g. Google Analytics), or have plug-ins that work mostly for administration related tasks (such as integration with Quickbooks). Plugins may also work at the automation level such as daily synchronization with a point-of-sale system (web services) to ensure accurate pricing and inventory).
Plugins may also utilize core system components such as the import/export Data Exchange System where you can download plugin information (csv/xml/json) and the Permissions System where access to plugin functionality may be restricted to qualified roles.
Maintaining and managing plugins is a breeze, they can installed from the admin console and uninstalled without requirng any development just as if you were installing an app on a smartphone.
Comrogen’s API allows third party applications to communicate and perform updates to and from your website. Comrogen’s API is based on the RESTful design, this methodology is one of the simplest yet most powerful methods of communicating information on the internet; think of it as a web site made to talk to other websites and applications.
Comrogen’s RESTful Api supports responses in JSON and XML, it also supports updates via HTTP POST, PUT, PATCH, and other HTTP Methods used in REST. The API makes integration a breeze with third party applications that also rely on a REST method of communication; but is flexible enough that it can adapt to other communication methods such as SOAP.
Comrogen’s API is dynamic and expandable; as you expand your system with plugins, the API will gain new rules and outputs that allow it to handle new operations. E.g.. the eBay plugin (coming soon) grants the system abilities to communicate with eBay to synchronize order, inventory, shipping, and customer information. These new options are added automatically when you install the plugin, the API does not need to be modified or re-compiled which means your source code remains intact. The API may be managed by the Comrogen administration site, where admins can set permissions, automate tasks, and configure notifications of operations and task completions.
