At Alumio we are always looking for ways to improve and expand our platform. One of those ways is through offering a set of standard integrations which can be used to connect popular systems out of the box. We are proud to announce the availability of our latest connector template which can be used to connect with Stamped.io.
Stamped.io allows merchants to collect user-generated content through the means of product reviews. Using these services merchants are enabled with the ability to expand their brand recognition and turn customers into fans. Stamped.io provides this service by collecting order data from an e-commerce system to send review requests after purchase.
To provide this service, Stamped.io collects orders from Magento through an extension. However, this does carry some risks for the merchant. When Magento releases an update, there is a reasonable chance that the module will no longer work properly because of changes to the platform. This can result in connection issues and problems in the data flow between the two systems.
For these reasons, merchants are encouraged to use the API. An API can be seen as a contract between two parties, in which agreements are made about how and where data from the platform can be accessed.
This connector template of Alumio use these APIs, or contracts, to make sure that all data moves from an e-commerce platform like Magento to Stamped.io in a safe, proper, and timely manner. Our connectors are comprehensively tested by a specialized testing company. This way, you are ensured that you keep momentum and never lose an opportunity to engage your customers in promoting your brand.
