- Supports product import from Erply to Prestashop, including product name, description, price, images etc
- When new order is received through Prestashop it is automatically imported to Erply
How to Set Up
We have developed an Erply module to synchronise Erply and Prestashop data. This module allows the import of Erply products and Prestashop products and sends Prestashop orders to Erply. This guide details the setup and use of the Erply module.
To start using the module, follow the steps listed below:
1. Erply module installation
Copy the Erply module to the Prestashop ‘Modules’ folder. Log in to Prestashop administration panel and go to the ‘Modules’ page
Scroll the page down to the ‘Tools’ block where the Erply module row can be found.
Click the Erply module ‘Install’ button, a ‘successful installation’ message appears on the top of the page.
2. Erply module setup
Scroll down to the Erply module row and click ‘>> Configure’ to setup and use this module.
On the module page type in your Erply user credentials and save them using the ‘Save’ button.
Before synchronising the products some settings can be made. Those settings can be made for any synchronisation direction (Erply->Prestashop, Prestashop->Erply).
Product categories are created automatically during the first product synchronisation and updated during the next synchronisation if more than 24 hours has passed from the last import. In order to force categories import (e.g., categories are deleted for testing purposes) select ‘Yes’ for ‘Force categories’ in the dropdown list. The ‘Amount’ field is used to set the number of products to synchronise. Leave it blank to synchronise all products.
The synchronisation process is divided in two parts, from Erply to Prestashop and from Prestashop to Erply, in order to make the module more flexible and let the user decide in which direction the synchronisation should be made.
To begin the product synchronisation click the ‘Start’ button for the required synchronisation direction. The module will synchronise categories and products. After the initial synchronisation use the ‘Start’ button if you wish to update existing categories/products or to synchronise newly added categories/products.
Keep in mind that Eply allows 500 API requests in an hour. If that number is exceeded, an error message will show.
In this case, return to the module page, wait for an hour and try to continue the synchronisation by clicking the ‘Start’ button.
3. Erply module synchronisation details
This module performs a two-way synchronisation of the Erply-Prestashop product categories and Erply-Prestashop products, so all Erply products appear in Prestashop and all Prestashop products appear in Erply.
In case of Erply->Prestashop synchronisation the fields are mapped as:
The module also imports product images.
The Erply module creates a new Erply order in the case of a new Prestashop order. When a Prestashop customer places an order on the checkout page, the module sends data to Erply and a new Erply order is created for future handling. It also creates new Erply customers and their addresses if they do not exist.
While creating a new Erply order the fields are mapped as:
To create a new Erply order, the module imports the products’ tax rates, order currency, product names, ordered amounts and prices to Erply.
This module includes a cron job which updates the Prestashop order status when it is paid in Erply. To enable the cron job, use the server’s crontab command (crontab filename).
1) Download the free standard connector:
ERPLY provides standard connector for free to all users, feel free to download and trial.
* Be advised, Prestashop is an ever-evolving product. For this reason many factors can easily cause issues/errors with the standard connector (such as Prestashop Version, varying configuration, user needs etc.) If standard connector is troublesome option 2 guarantees to provide what is needed.
* Standard Free connector support is not provided by ERPLY.
