Shopping cart integration for PIM software [Use Case]
PIM (Product information management) software depends on integration with shopping carts to automate most of its operations: retrieving every single piece of content from online shop: product names, descriptions, categories, graphics, prices, variants, stock levels, customers, etc.
When building product info management 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 PIM software covers:
- retrieve products lists along with prices images, descriptions, attributes, variants, categories, etc.
- send product info to marketplace listings on eBay, Etsy, Amazon
- add and update translated product info on webstores
- get and update customer info
- get store info like name, timezone, language, currency, country etc.
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.
