Setting up SAP integration with WooCommerce is a reasonable request.  WooCommerce is now one of the most popular eCommerce platforms used around the globe.  Here, we’ll talk you through everything you need to know about SAP Integration.

What is SAP ERP?

For those of you unfamiliar with the term, SAP is a German software company known for creating enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. This type of software allows businesses to manage their operations effectively.

For the majority of companies running SAP, figuring out how you can integrate between SAP and their other business systems can pose a serious challenge.  SAP software is particularly complex, so you will need a good grasp of the available integration options in order to create a solid integration strategy.

How to Integrate WooCommerce with SAP?

Now that you have selected to use WooCommerce as your eCommerce platform, you will now need to integrate this to your back-end systems.  These include ERP software, CRM and POS.  How you choose to integrate SAP with the Magic xpi Integration Platform will completely depend on the version of WooCommerce you are using.  If you are running WooCommerce 2.6 or later you will find it super easy to integrate using the WordPress API itself.  Updating to WooCommerce 2.6 or later means that you can use the WordPress REST API.

The good news is that the Magic xpi Integration Platform works with all of the REST API version available. Whether WooCommerce or WordPress.  This platform has the ability to automate the RESTful Web services you offer via HTTP an JSON/.  This means you will be able to make full use of the CRUD options to create, read, update and delete.  The Magic platform simplifies the use of all the API capabilities and makes it super easy for you to transform data and link to your SAP.

When using the WordPress API, the default response format will be JSON.  Also, using the Magic xpi Integration Platform will automate the current WordPress API.  This will provide automated capabilities for a full range of WooCommerce features including:
