Dear Visitors and Customers,
We regret to have to inform you, but we will no longer be offering our integration services with InkSoft and its API. After more than 2 years of working with the platform, we have come to the conclusion that the API will never be fully opened up as it should and it will never be fully operational. We have been blamed for the missing elements in our integration service, but it’s simply not true. The API itself is not complete and is missing the data to even import and integrate with all necessary data.
To this date, we have not yet found a SINGLE InkSoft user to be able to fully utilize the API completely. Even ShirtMonster.com’s member data is not API based. It is a direct InkSoft member’s login page masked with an InkSoft IP address with their own sub-domain. In fact, even if ShirtMonster.com wanted to change their design, they cannot because the theme used to design the header/footer of that area is no longer accessible by any user. All of the InkSoft internal themes, except for one, have been removed. Even that last theme, “Starter,” will eventually be terminated, which means whatever changes you make there, you will never be able to go back and edit it in the future when it’s removed. That also means NO ONE will ever be able to do what ShirtMonster.com did 3 years ago.
The InkSoft API 2.0 had an early release earlier in the year, but was officially in beta as of August 4, 2017. As of December 15, 2017, The API 2.0 is still defective and unstable enough to be operational. With its introduction, it also means the API 1.0 will eventually go away. That means all API 1.0 integrated sites will have to upgrade to the 2.0. With all things considered, we can no longer support the InkSoft API and its defective and incomplete components.
Additionally, we have discovered many other websites utilizing the InkSoft API, but are also facing similar issues as we do. Our plugin may save you $15,000 in development costs, but even that is not enough when you consider the fact that we could never fully complete it with missing data. If InkSoft can one day rectify their issues and provide a complete API, we may re-consider and continue offering support for the InkSoft integration service again. Until then, our decision is made.
Using our skills, experience and the WordPress plugin we built, we are able to import and integrate your InkSoft micro-stores, fundraisers, products, designs, images and other data with WooCommerce. That means your brand new website will load faster, be fully customized and rock’n some hardcore SEO.

The Only InkSoft WordPress Plugin
Until now, there has been no such plugin, program or service capable of easily merging your InkSoft stores and products with WordPress to give you more power and control like “Plug Into IS”. Our plugin and service was made specifically for this and especially for you!
Why Choose Us
From the first time you import a store, you’ll be able to schedule what days of the week (even everyday) and specific times to sync additional products added to your InkSoft account. You can schedule to sync twice a day if you need that.
Once your site is setup, you’ll be able to manually import any data that InkSoft allows us to access. That includes products, categories, users, clip arts and custom designs. With the manual option, you can import specific items that are not yet present in your WordPress website.
Now that your InkSoft store is imported into WordPress, your products can be managed via WooCommerce. You can even add on more products or manage all product settings such as tax, weight, quantity, stock, colors and other variations.
When orders are processed via WooCommerce on your new website, the orders are also sent to your InkSoft account as a backup automatically. This is especially useful for store owners who currently or in the future want to use InkSoft’s automated order processing service.
Our plugin now automatically hides any microstore products from the main “Shop” or “Products” page so only blank products will be displayed. The blank products will then also all have their ‘add to cart’ removed so only pre-designed products from microstores will have these buttons. You can also modify the design/color of the [Customize] and [Select Color] buttons.
This is something I’m sure every Inksoft customer has wanted since they realized the limitations of Inksoft’s web design features.
For the first time in a LONG time, I feel my site is now ready to compete with the “Big Dogs” and with being a small business… that’s very, very imperative.
We could not be happier with the look of our brand new website, it has just the right amount bells and whistles while keeping a very sleek and contemporary look.
I cannot speak highly enough of their services. I recommend anyone using InkSoft consider getting an integration service with PlugIntoIS. You’ll be very happy you did.
