Custom vs. Plug n' Play Integration with Shopify

Custom or plug n' play integration? Learn the differences and the benefits of working with NuORDER to help you integrate eCommerce platforms like Shopify.

Integrations are the cornerstone of your business. They make all of your essential software work together seamlessly to streamline your workflow and ultimately help you reach more customers. But integrating with other software can be difficult. 

In this blog, we cover the ins and outs of why a custom integration is the right choice for your brand to integrate your other B2B tools seamlessly with eCommerce platforms like Shopify. 

What is a custom integration?

Simply put, a custom integration means building a custom software solution that is specific to your exact use case when needing to shuffle data from one database to another.

Differences between a plug n’ play integration vs a custom integration

An alternative integration type to consider is plug-and-play, an idea that integration will be handled and completed without intervention, in other words, your software will integrate as soon as they are connected. 

While plug n' play may be touted as the newest, fastest mode of software integrations, it’s a bit misleading. Integrations still require some code writing at both ends to export and import data and without a skilled team of specialists necessary to resolve any integration issues, you are at a disadvantage. 

The advantage of the custom integration approach is that a specialized team can do custom mapping based on your setup with your eCommerce platforms like Shopify. This will reduce support issues postlaunch. The last thing you want is to be prepping for market and find that the integration isn’t working as expected.
