Published 2 December 2020 | Updated 3 December 2020 | Natalia Kovalchuk

As an app builder software provider, you need to know how to get e-stores’ coupons properly and also be able to add and delete them from your clients’ shops. This is because eCommerce shop owners are quite dependent on coupons, especially when they want to increase their sales during holidays or right before they are expecting new stock of products and want to get rid of the old inventory.

Of course, the market for app builder software providers is growing at an astounding pace. As more and more gadgets are connected to the Internet and have smart features, mobile shopping has gone mainstream. As a result, eCommerce shop owners are looking for partners who can design their own mobile apps or perform smart integrations between their website and various eCommerce tools and features.

Because new app development and mobile commerce solutions are growing by the day, staying competitive involves getting an edge in your niche. The easiest way to do that is by integrating your service with the most common eCommerce shopping platforms out there.

Why App Development Solutions Need Integration with eCommerce Platforms?

Due to mobile devices' growth and the expansion of mobile commerce systems, most eCommerce shop owners had to adjust their strategy and change their focus towards a mobile-first selling strategy. To establish a connection with their customers and leverage technology's real power, they want to invest in developing mobile apps.

As a mobile app development solution provider, your job is to create bespoke apps that enable your clients to grow their profits. Integrating your services with shopping platforms used by your clients gives you a specific range of benefits. First, you gain access to a more significant market share since you’ll be able to serve more of your customers. Second, you can expand the functionality range of your app and enjoy better tech.

Next on, integrating your app development solution with the most common eCommerce platforms out there enables you to retrieve the store data within seconds and sync your clients’ apps with their web stores.

This ensures that all customer data, product info, inventory, or order data is accessible to your clients and that they can manipulate the data to grow their e-stores further. For you, the eCommerce platforms your customers use are highly important since they store all the data connected with the stores. This also includes e-store coupons, which are a proven way to boost sales and increase customer satisfaction.

How to Develop the Connection with Multiple Shopping Platforms?

Of course, integrating your software with eCommerce platforms is not an easy task, but one that is quite challenging. Obtaining access to databases stored on various platforms takes time as it is a highly complicated technical process. To top it all, you need to find just the right developers for the job and pay them hefty salaries.

All in all, this is a lengthy process that involves constant maintenance of already developed integrations. The solution to all these integration challenges is the use of API2Cart. This is a modern unified API that enables mobile app building solution providers to connect directly to 40+ shopping platforms at once. It means that you won’t need to develop a connection with each shopping platform separately. All you’ll need to do is to integrate with API2Cart. After that, you’ll get access to the data from Magento, Shopify, PrestaShop, WooCommerce, and the other supported platforms.

The integration process using API2Cart is less time consuming than in-house integration development. It also allows you to quickly synchronize your clients' apps and their web stores with the data related to products, inventory, clients, coupons, etc. You can then use that data to offer insightful analytics to your customers.

API2Cart’s Methods That Allow to Get, Add and Delete e-Stores' Coupons

All app builder software providers that want to get an edge on the market and use API2Cart solution should be aware of the API methods that allow them to manage all the needed e-stores data. Besides a wide range of API methods that we offer to retrieve and manage the data on products, orders, customers, etc., we also provide methods that allow you to get, add, and delete e-store coupons with ease.

There are three main methods that can be used to perform these operations:

  • cart.coupon.list: this is the standard method to get a list of coupons available on the site at a certain moment. This method is supported for multiple shopping platforms. An example of its response you can see below:
  • overflow
    
    {
        "coupons_count":1,
        "coupon":[
