Shopping Cart Integration for Marketing Automation Software [Use Case]

Published 16 May 2019 | Updated 21 May 2019 |

Marketing automation software depends on integration with shopping carts to automate most of its operations: retrieving every single piece of content from online store: products and orders, customer contacts, coupons, etc.

When building marketing automation software, you need to ensure it can accurately retrieve, process, and add this information. This involves developing dozens of connections, including those with shopping platforms that merchants run their stores on.

Integration with shopping carts and marketplaces powers the majority of features and processes that every marketing automation system covers:

  • retrieve products lists along with prices images, descriptions, attributes, variants, categories, etc.
  • send emails featuring new items, discounts and special prices
  • notify on order statuses
  • import contacts from stores and build segmented lists
  • spot and track cart abandoners, website visitors, and successful purchases
  • generate smart e-mail statistics
 

BUT integration can be harder than you think. And API2Cart does the hardest part of it for you. API2Cart makes integration with multiple shopping carts and marketplaces so much easier, faster and cheaper.
