I'm setting up a shop at https://shop.sleekanddestroy.com
to transition from Etsy and have more control over the whole shop. I've been using https://pickandship.com/
for my drop shipping. They've got an API and I'd love to hook it up instead of sending them manual order updates. My question is how difficult a job am I looking at, here? I know front-end development enough to knock a site together, but am pretty ignorant when it comes to API's.
Here's what I'm looking to have happen:
- Customer order information passed from FoxyShop to SFC once a customer transaction is confirmed
- Shipping status sent to the customer when their order is fulfilled
- Inventory updates reflected on the shop (when SFC ships an order, when SFC receives new stock, and when SFC processes a return)
- Warning messages sent to our shop email if either FoxyCart or SFC makes a change to their API's that impacts this setup
Is this something I can muddle through just reading the foxy.io api docs, or will I need to secure a professional developer to make sure this doesn't come back to bite me?
