We are trying to integrate Spruce (ECI) with a WooCommerce/WordPress site


We are a hardware store in Grand Rapids, MI and we are looking to sync our inventory levels from our ERP system to an e-Commerce store we are in the process of developing.

We are trying to integrate Spruce (ECI) with a WooCommerce/WordPress site.

Can you provide us with any information on an integrator for this?

Thank you,

Answer: –

We haven’t built Woocommerce integration with Spruce (ECI) yet.

But you may look around the following options if something works for you:

Option 1:
If we develop a new integration with Spruce (ECI) from the scratch, it will be a time-consuming affair. We usually take 3 – 4 months to build a new integration.

This also results in costly affair as we charge $3500 as one-time cost of integration.
On top of that, we also charge a monthly fee of $125 + $0.10/Order per Month on going Live.

Regarding solution, we use our cloud-based middleware SaaS platform called ‘Octopus’.
Octopus facilitates two-way integration – uploads inventory from POS to eCommerce stores and downloads web orders into POS system. The synchronization works automatically through various Schedulers.

Octopus also empowers you to sell on multiple online marketplaces (Amazon, Ebay, Farfetch, SmartEtailing, etc.) simultaneously.

Option 2:
If you have in-house team of Developers, we can share public API of Octopus and setup a Test environment for you. Using this API, your team can develop the integration between Spruce (ECI) and Octopus platform. Octopus is already integrated with Woocommerce and other marketplaces.

This option can help you saving $3500.

Option 3:
You may discuss with your POS partner and ask if they would be interested to build the integration with Octopus.
If they decide to develop this integration, it would be beneficial for them. They can offer Spruce (ECI) integration with various shopping carts (Magento, Shopify, BigCommerce, Woocommerce) and marketplaces (Amazon, Ebay, Farfetch, SmartEtailing, Fancy) in one go.

Please let me know your thoughts.
