As I understand it, the roadblock to inventory auto-updating is Webflow allowing editing of a live CMS item via the API. This would make a difference in many use cases, and integrations, just one of which being e-commerce and inventory control.
Have a read of this thread, Nathan has updated it to say that they are scoping live editing of CMS items: Publishing collection data and removing OAuth integration
In very brief terms the way Foxy works with Webflow is:
- Create and manage the product, descriptions, prices, variants, images within Webflow CMS
- At present, add a manual toggle for in stock/out of stock
- Embed Foxy cart and checkout code
- Foxy’s add to cart takes the product data and creates the transaction ready to checkout.
Inventory functionality would mean Foxy could then feed through back to the CMS and update stock levels.
As I understand it Foxy’s integration is ready, once Webflow enable live editing via API.
I haven’t utilised a user database system so far, so essentially customers checkout as a guest each time (Foxy does saves the receipts/transactions for each store). However, Foxy does allow for creating a password so a customer can save and edit their payment/contact details.
Hope that’s useful
