Today, eCommerce industry is unthinkable without email marketing automation. It has been winning back customers, recovering lost revenues and nurturing relationships with clients since the very beginning of eCommerce.
For running the functions above email marketing automation software needs to use various data from stores like customers, orders, product descriptions, etc. As all information from the online shops is stored on shopping carts’ databases, email marketing automation software needs to integrate with shopping platforms.
However, getting connected with platforms always involves tons of tech work to do, let alone maintaining all these connections. Instead, API2Cart offers you one API to get connected with more than 40+ shopping carts and marketplaces such as Lightspeed, 3dCart, OpenCart, Cs-Cart, Salesforce Commerce Cloud, etc at once via just one API.
