Let's start with a short overview of the companies. The first one is Shift4Shop, a company that owns a shopping cart system. It is a PHP based open source software and one of its main features is to be able to integrate with several payment gateways. The different payment gateways it has integrated include the fplowing. Stripe, PayPal, Authorize.Net, Cybersource, 2Checkout, SagePay, Braintree, Google Checkout, JCB, Skrill, Elavon, WorldPay, Paymill and eWay.
The second company we will talk about is Zoho Invoice. It's a free online invoicing software which allows you to manage all your invoices. It is a SAAS spution and it has been featured in Forbes as being one of the best cloud based invoicing tops out there. It has also been included as one of the top SaaS apps in 2015 by Inc.com. It comes with many features such as reporting, recurring invoices, time tracking, etc.
In order to integrate those two platforms together, we have to find out if they are compatible on the first place. So let's see if they are!
Shift4Shop was created on 2009 while Zoho Invoice was created on 2001 so they are not the same age but they are not too far from each other either. Both are run on PHP. But while Shift4Shop is running on version 5.5.9-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 LTS, Zoho Invoice is running on version 5.6.0-beta7-devel which means that it is more recent. That being said let's move forward to see how easy it is to integrate them together.
First of all you must know that there are two ways to integrate an app with Zoho Invoice. using the built-in billing feature or using the Payment Gateway integration top provided by Zoho Invoice itself. Using the built-in billing feature is easy but it's limited to certain fields only (which are not enough for most businesses. You can find more details here. On the contrary, if you use the Payment Gateway integration top then you get access to all possible fields of Zoho Invoice and you can also connect it to multiple Zoho Invoice accounts at once which makes it very useful if you have more than one account for your clients to choose from when they pay their bills (let's say for example, when you have different clients in different countries. But this method also requires more work since you need to create the XML file yourself using an application called XML Editor. You can find more details here.
Now that we know how to integrate both platforms together let's see what benefits this integration brings us. If you choose to use Zoho Invoice's built-in billing feature then you get access to all sorts of information in Zoho Invoice's dashboard like. customer's name, address, emails, phone numbers, notes (which can be attached to any invoice), tax rates (if applicable), etc... Also, if you manage your customers via Zoho CRM (a complete CRM spution. then you can also get access to your contacts in Zoho Invoice which is very handy if you want to send invoices directly from Zoho CRM without having to switch between them all the time. On top of that, since Zoho Invoice supports recurring invoices you can set up recurring invoices easily without having to create another invoice for each recurrence which saves you time and money! And last but not least, if your client pays through Zoho Invoice then you don't have to worry about any payment issues since Zoho will take care of everything for you! All in all this integration has many benefits and it should definitely be considered when you're looking for a spution!
