ERPLY – Prestashop Inventory Module

We are happy to publish an updated Prestashop inventory module to synchronize products and orders between Erply and Prestashop (version As the module is still in beta, please contact us at and we’ll give you the access and setup instructions.

This module allows two-way synchronization of categories, products and customer groups. Also one way (from Prestashop to Erply) synchronization of customers, customer addresses, orders and order history. This guide details the setup and use of the Erply module.

1.   Erply – Prestashop Inventory Connector setup

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

To begin the synchronization choose the synchronization direction (from Presta to ERPLY, from ERPLY to Presta or both ways) and click the ‘Start’ button.

After the initial synchronization use the ‘Start’ button if you wish to update existing data.

Keep in mind that Erply 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 synchronization by clicking the ‘Start’ button.


To enable automatic synchronization cron_all.php from module folder should be added to server’s crontab.

1.3.   Erply module synchronization details

This module performs a two-way synchronization of the Erply – Prestashop product categories, Erply – Prestashop customer groups and Erply – Prestashop product, so all Erply products and customers appear in Prestashop and all Prestashop products and customers appear in Erply.

In case of Erply -> Prestashop synchronization the fields are mapped as:

1.3.1.                 Category/product group synchronization

Erply PrestaShop
parentGroupID id_parent
name Name
showInWebshop Active


1.3.2.                 Product synchronisation

Erply PrestaShop
displayedInWebshop Active
name Name
added reduction_from

groupID id_category
groupID id_category_default
vatrate id_tax_rules_group (local id is matched by vatrate value)
vatrate id_tax (local id is matched by vatrate value)
price Price
netWeight Weight
brandName id_manufacturer (New manufacturer is added if not found)
supplierName id_supplier (New supplier is added if missing)
supplierName supplier_name
warehouses (sum of “free” field for all warehouses) Quantity is added to product

1.3.3.                 Customer groups synchronization

Erply PrestaShop

The module also imports product images only from Erply to Prestashop.

Also, the synchronization module allows you to perform a one-way synchronization of the Prestashop -> Erply customers, customer address, orders and order history, so all Prestashop customers, customer addresses, orders and order histories appear in Erply.

In case of Prestashop -> Erply synchronization the fields are mapped as:

1.3.4.                 Customers synchronization

Erply PrestaShop
firstName Firstname
lastName Lastname
email Email
birthday Birthday


1.3.5.                 Customer address synchronisation

Erply PrestaShop

1.3.7.                 Order history synchronization

All updated orders are synchronized with Erply. If the order is deleted from Prestashop it is deleted from Erply also. If the order is paid invoiceState is updated to “READY” with saveSalesDocument update method.

If the order is paid new payment is synced to Erply with field mapping:

Erply PrestaShop
