Now, when you know some key facts about Pikengo, we can focus on choosing the Magento 2 Pikengo connector.
How to Choose Magento 2 Pickengo Connector
You may face several issues while choosing a Magento 2 Pikengo connector. First of all, the selected tool may be designed to move data in one direction only. If it seems that it is enough for most integrations, you are mistaken. The new functionality may be added soon, so you will have to install an additional extension or do a part of work manuPikengo ally. In case of a supplementary module, the costs of integration increase. At the same time, the consumption of resources rise.
Moreover, we don’t recommend you to use two-way connectors if they don’t work with multiple integrations. A platform-oriented tool may be more precisely configured for a particular integration, but it will never help you with the synchronization of multiple systems together. You will face more problems with each new integration. The cost of being multichannel will rise dramatically, connectors will consume lots of resources, and the probability of conflicts will be significantly increased. Luckily, you can solve the problem with the help of a universal import/export solution, such as the Improved Import Export Magento 2 extension. Why do we recommend this module?
First of all, because it offers the ability to turn your Magento 2 store into a central hub and the control room for all integrations. With the help of the extension, you will easily move data to and from Magento 2 connecting it with any third-party system. To make the integration more user-friendly, we’ve equipped the module with the following features:
Flexible Import and Export Profiles. Our extension allows creating separate data flows to and from Magento 2. Thus, if you don’t need import functionality, you can create an export profile only. All profiles support cron so that any custom schedule of updates can be created. The extension offers predefined update intervals. Besides, you can run every profile manually before the update.
Multiple Connection Formats. In addition to the default CSV and a wide-spread XML, the Improved Import Export Magento 2 extension also supports TXT, Google Sheets, and API connection with external platforms. No competitors offer such broad selection of import/export formats.
Multiple Import/Export Sources. With the Improved Import & Export Magento 2 extension, you can easily transfer data files via different sources. First of all, it is a local server. If this option is not helpful in the integration, you can easily rely on a remote server or a cloud storage. Besides, file import via URL is possible as well.
Mapping. To solve the conflicts of data structures and different attributes, the Improved Import Export Magento 2 extension offers the user-friendly mapping functionality. Every profile includes a mapping grid that allows matching Magento 2 attributes to custom attributes in the most seamless manner. Forever forget about manual data file editing. Moreover, the module offers mapping presets – fixed mapping schemes for various integration that can be applied within just a few clicks.
