Integrating Magento CE 2.x with Rapnet instant inventory
TransPacific Software has created an advanced full-stack framework for integrating Rapnet services into Magento 2.x
You need to have Rapnet login and Rapnet Instant inventory service account with Rapnet. Its costs around $1210/per year Click for More details
Rapnet has completely discontinued its DLS (Directory Listing Services) and replaced it with advanced Rapnet Instant web services. DLS allowed a user to download the full diamond data in CSV file format, which was heavy on resources.
Rapnet Instant Inventory services is a Restful web service, so all data is on Rapnet server. It can is pulled as required thus reducing the load on your eCommerce Server.
It consists of two parts
- Backend Magento Extension which pulls the data from Rapnet instant services in real-time.
- Front end UI which allows the complete customisation of looks and feel of the Diamond search engine in the front end.
Both of these are seamlessly integrated to create a full Rapnet integration module.
The biggest advantage it gives over ready-made widgets available on Magento market places is its front end is completely customisable as per the parent website design. It also integrates Rapnet diamonds as native Magento products so the user can not only buy the diamonds but also can add them in wishlist and compare
The integration is so seamless that unlike widgets (having iframes) user will never know that it is pulling diamonds from Rapnet database
The costing of integration starts from $1500 depending on what features you require. eg. only white diamonds or colour diamonds, filtering criterion, Video requirements, detail page Designs
