Services APIΒΆ

Shuup provides a service API which is based on polymorphic models. Currently Shuup provides two implementations of these services: payment methods and shipping methods, but the API allows implementing other kind of services too.

From the Services API point of view a service is something that may conditionally generate some new lines for a basket. Also various aspects of these services can be customized:

Each service should have a service provider and service choice, which is selected from a list of service choices specified by the service provider.

Behavior of a service can be customized with behavior components. Each behavior component may limit availability of the service, or (conditionally) add costs to it, or affect service delivery time (which in case of shipping methods is the shipping time, but could have other meaning for other kinds of services). It is possible to assign several behavior components to a service.
