because then when you change prices and so on you can show a reaction.
I understand this as being the major weakness in using Blinksale as an outside invoice management solution.
the 1 Owner - 2+ Magento stores situation
But, I still think that using Blinksale to manage the invoices from 2+ magento stores is a sweet solution.
Managing different stores with the same receiver of payments (1 Owner - 2+ Stores) needs a centralized way to list invoices and check payments.
And Blinksale can bring together Magento stores, old osComm, ZenCart, ... just any kind of web store, really.
the 1 Owner - 1 Store situation (periodical billing):
if you have periodicall billing, you’ll need some CRON job to call Magento every month, to send the invoice via email to the client.
Well, I don’t believe that Magento is designed to be called ‘command prompt’ style (as in crontab)… it can work, but I’m smelling cookies, sessions and auth issues. And this is to have the all process, automatic… hands-out.
I’m just saying that Blinksale was especially designed to handle invoices automaticlly, as Magento was especially designed to sell products in online stores. Some kind of web integration, would be really useful.
I’ve be looking at their API, and they do it with cURL calls, PUT/POST requests. (http://www.blinksale.com/api)
So it’s really fairly simple.
PS. I’m not affliated in anyway with Blinksale
