headless ebusiness api

powerful & flexible

overview

Enter the networked economy.

At the core of EBIZPLATFORM lives a REST API powerful enough to handle the most rigorous omni-channel ecommerce requirements.  API subscribers benefit from the flexibility of a API-based architecture combined with well-thought-out features and functionality – all accessible through a single endpoint.  Break away from the limitations of templated, cookie-cutter solutions which limit your ebusiness and sales.

As an added perk, our Unified Ecommerce API offers three different  levels of access to ensure your data and functionality are secure and used appropriately.

  1. Applications – full access to all API data and methods.  Perfect for ERP/back-office integrations and full-blown custom apps and headless ecommerce solutions.
  2. Partners – access to most data and methods but features such as pulling order history are limited to only orders placed by the partner.
  3. Content Subscribers – limited to only product data and content.  Lightning fast, always available and updated in real-time.  Great for powering direct to consumer websites.

We practice what we preach.  All of our ecommerce and product data as a service products and solutions are built upon our own API.

Typical System Integrations

An API-based approach creates limitless opportunities.

  • Order Management

    Exchange order, shipment and back order information with back office and ERP systems.  Automatically bring in new orders and alert customers and partners of changes.

  • Product Data Syndication

    Get new product data to market in real-time by connecting your partners to the REST API.  Control branding and standards by syndicating content and data directly from the source.

  • Partner Enablement

    Help partners market your products by pulling content and data directly from a single source of truth.  You make a change and they are advertising it immediately.

  • Custom Development

    Create new applications or entire web sites and portals by calling well-documented API methods.  Utilize the power of REST and oData to create completely custom solutions to meet exact use cases.

  • Instant Data Lookups

    Allow partners and stakeholders to connect direct to inventory and pricing data to ensure that everyone is playing from the same sheet of music. Accurate orders, every time.

  • 3rd Party Integration

    Extend the API into other platforms such as shopping carts and content management systems to overcome any shortcomings in their product data management and ecommerce.

Benefits of Unified Commerce

API-based solutions empower developers and innovators to grow your ebusiness.

  • Infinitely Flexible

    By decoupling presentation from logic and data, applications and integrations can be crafted to handle any use case. If the data exists it can be extended to anything including web sites, portals and IoT.

  • Connect Distributed Systems

    Avoid the pitfall of maintaining multiple silos of data by connecting them. ERPs, accounting systems and inventory systems talking through the API is ecommerce Nirvana.

  • Developer Friendly

    Unleash agencies, developers and integrators to use any technology that suits them. JSON has become the language of unified commerce and accepted universally.

  • Scalable and Viral

    Create as many applications and implementations as needed from a single, repeatable endpoint. Extend your data to multiple partners and developers and differentiate your brand.
