To optimise the benefits of Shopify tags, our development team has enhanced our support for Shopify. This included streamlining our product fetch logic to enable better management of import setups, speed up new integrations and reduce the number of requests required to collect pertinent information from Shopify.
We already have several customers taking advantage of the features Shopify tags enable, including long-term client Green Snow.
“On one occasion Green Snow was dealing with a client’s subscription orders and needed to put to identify if an order was the first from a new customer or a repeat order from an existing one,” says Zac. “We used a tag against the order to denote which it was. This data was then saved against the order within our WMS, allowing the client to apply business logic to their courier selection.”
On another occasion, a client needed a third party system to process and make changes to a Shopify order before it was received by OrderFlow.
“Normally this kind of processing would be handled with Shopify states, however they couldn’t in this situation because the states were already managed by their payment gateway,” explains Zac. “Instead a ‘ReadyForDispatch’ tag was added to orders once they were ready to be processed.”
These are just a couple of examples that highlight how the flexibility of Shopify tags is complemented by the flexibility of the OrderFlow WMS. If you’re a Shopify user and your current fulfilment processes are struggling to meet the demands of your Shopify site, then please get in touch!
