Shopping Cart Integration for Multi-Channel Software [Use Case]

Published 10 June 2019 | Updated 10 June 2019 |

Multi-channel eCommerce software greatly depends on integration with shopping carts and marketplaces to automate most of its operations: getting information on products, orders, shipments, inventory levels, etc., organizing it into data feeds, and updating across all channels.

When building multi-channel 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 multi-channel software covers:

  • retrieve products lists along with prices, images, descriptions, attributes, variants, categories, etc.
  • create and update product listings and prices on multiple platforms
  • notify on order statuses
  • manage orders throughout all sales channels from a single place
  • control inventory stock levels and shipping
  • organize the data in detailed reports
 

However, the 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.
