Overview

The integration with Revel is a 2-Way interface in which Yellow Dog pulls code data from and pushes new and changed items to Revel Systems via their API and receives sales via Revel’s webhook ability.

Sync Approach

Yellow Dog's sync to push in new/edited items can be run at any interval, but will be scheduled at the top of each hour during business hours by default.

Requirements

Client

The client will need to request and sign up for an Integration Services with Revel. There is a $15/Month fee from Revel per integration. The client should reach out to their Account Rep to discuss details.

POS Partner

Revel will provide an API agreement to Yellow Dog. Once this agreement is signed, Revel will provide the API credentials for the client.

Additional Information

Limitations

  1. Revel POS is limited to a single barcode per item, 4 digits or greater. Yellow Dog's sync will push UPC1 if it is populated with a code longer than 4 digits; if UPC1 is not populated with a valid UPC, the Yellow Dog sync will push UPC2, UPC3, or SKU, whichever has a valid code first.

  2. Because of the way that Revel Systems receives images, we are unable to push images to Revel's API.

  3. After updating items in Yellow Dog and running the sync, a Refresh is required to update the Revel POS.

  4. After updating items, their placement on the Revel POS screens may change.

  5. Revel has specific limitations to the number of API calls that can be made to their API per day; this can cause delays with initial item pushes into Revel PO

  6. We can only push in items, not modifiers.
