We are building a 4-product ecommerce website.
We will use "Shopify Plus" and build custom page designs based on supplied files.
Please make note of the headless CMS and SKDs available for developing with Shopify Plus, they have a lot of tools and support for this. See here https://www.shopify.ca/plus/solutions/headless-commerce
The site will be bilingual (English and French)
The fulfilment and shipping for the products will be handles as follows:
- Fulfilment will be handled by a third party.
- We will be responsible for connecting Shopify to an edi/erp system via a 3rd party tool
- the 3rd party tool will be based on an offering by cannel ape. We will manage the connection setup while their software handles the data transmission from Shopify
