ERPLY POS system setup instructions

We have developed an Erply POS 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.

Start SetUp

To start using the Prestashop POS module, follow the steps listed below:

1. Prestashop POS system module installation

Copy the Erply POS module to the Prestashop 'Modules' folder. Log in to Prestashop administration panel and go to the 'Modules' page

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 POS allows 500 API requests in an hour. If that number is exceeded, an error message will show.

Prestashop POS module synchronisation details

This module performs a two-way synchronisation of the Erply POS 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 Prestashop POS 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).
