Yotpo Connector Template

At Alumio we have standard integrations available, allowing you to quickly connect two applications with each other. We have expanded this list of connector templates with Yotpo.

Yotpo is a service for gathering user-generated content, such as product reviews and Q&A widgets for the various products across a store. Using a service such as Yotpo allows a Merchant to smoothly setup a way to collect valuable user-generated content. In order for this service to work as intended, Yotpo requires that certain entities are synchronized from an e-commerce platform. Those entities are the orders and the products. The orders are used to send customers a review request email upon purchase, or after a set delay, depending on the configuration. Products are required to enable the powerful marketing tools Yotpo has to offer.

Instead of connecting an e-commerce platform with a module installed within your platform, merchants are encouraged to use the API to make these kind of transactions. The API serves as a contract between two parties in which agreements are made regarding the storage and transferal of data. Alumio utilizes these contracts to move data across these applications.

By using our standard integration you can setup a connection between the two applications without having to code and without ever having to deploy to production. Our connectors are comprehensively tested by a specialized testing company. By using this approach you are ensured of getting the correct data to the right place at the right time.

1) Let the API Datapoints be created via SAP Consultants

Risk of low quality & performance errors
If your team will create the data points in the API’s for a fully blown SAP B2B portal, for the first time, the risk of forgetting data fields, the wrong type / logic of creating webservices in a way they will not perform is enormous.    

Let's give you 1 example and insight:   In order to create a customer or so-called self-service portal in your B2B eCommerce, where customers can have a look to their current stats of orders and deliveries, or the history of orders, you need to create 2 separate webservice to make sure you are not over requesting the SAP API. You need to create a separate web service which only requests the header information (invoice number,  for only the latest 10 items, etc and 1 separate which request the detailed information of an invoice. rserd customer will look for a list of first and only will have a look to 1 order/ delivery. The API call of the headers is exceptionally light, and the request of detailed information is a bit heavier. By using 2 APIs call for this feature, you are preventing to request all the detailed information for every user, which will visit the self-service portal. This way if building the API’s is 98% lighter than requesting all detailed information for all orders by all users!

The risk of configuring your webservice in a way which will get a big load to your SAP is enormous. When requesting all products, B2B Prices, Orders or Invoices to your SAP using real-time calls via a wrong logic, it may cause serious  performance problems. It is  therefore extremely important to configure the webservice with the right logic, using a smart caching  mechanism, to not request data in real-time by using “call” requests to your  API webservices, however  use a push mechanism to prevent big load and performance issues

2) Use an off the shelf certified and proven SAP API Plugin
