First, let’s jump to the basics.
A plugin is a software add-on that is installed on a program, enhancing its capabilities. For example, if you wanted to watch a video on a website, you may need a plugin to do so. If the plugin is not installed, your browser will not understand how to play the video.
That being explained, this is the platform where you configure them.
This functionality serves to extend the Ordering API functionalities to anything you want without any restriction. Ordering allows these plugins to be developed in any programming language taking into account that it works through HTTP requests. The plugins can be uploaded to any server to be hosted.
With the plugins you can do almost anything you want, your imagination is the limit. This functionality is so powerful that for example, you can add endpoints using the URL of the plugin. Suppose that you want to add a new Endpoint for a "new thing", it is not necessary to contact the developers of the "Ordering API" to make the modification, instead, you can add this new functionality by taking advantage of the plugins.
