New RESTful API for 3dcart

3dcart’s new 7.0 platform released with a plethora of new features and upgrades, including our new, incredibly efficient RESTful API. With REST API, store owners will have the ability to accept and return data in XML or JSON. This popularly requested update allows for merchants versed in web development to easily build widgets or various applications on 3dcart.

For those not familiar with API (Application Programming Interface), its basic function is to retrieve, create and/or edit your store’s database using code rather than your web browser. Customers, customer groups, distributors, products, categories, manufacturers and orders are a few examples of popularly accessed data via this method.

Our REST API is designed to have predictable, resource oriented URLS and to use HTTP response codes to indicate API errors. We use built-in HTTP features, like HTTP verbs, which can be understood by off-the-shelf HTTP clients. As mentioned, JSON or XML will be returned in all responses from the API, including errors.

3dcart, in our aim to provide innovative, exciting updates to our platform and infrastructure, is proud to offer developers worldwide with a third-party-friendly API. Whether you’re looking to build applications, perform tasks such as listings or simply looking to update orders, customers and/or products, REST API is your solution to efficiently accessing the information you require.

Gain Access to a Personal Webmaster with 3dcart’s myWebmaster Service

webmaster blog Gain Access to a Personal Webmaster with 3dcart’s myWebmaster Service

3dcart has always strived to offer the industry’s best technical support, which is why we’ve taken measures through the years to ensure that our customer satisfaction never falls below 95%. But even with access to the best, most knowledgeable technical support, merchants are still regularly faced with tasks and issues that while burdensome and sometimes challenging, are not within the scope of technical support’s expertise.

Nonetheless, the last thing we want is to leave our merchants out to dry, which is why we’ve implemented a new service to bridge the gap between our free 24x7x365 technical support and expensive third-party solutions. 3dcart’s myWebMaster Service is the first eCommerce program to offer online merchants access to a personal webmaster – an expert ready and capable to solve issues and requests related to design, SEO, products, shipping and more.

Running an online store takes an incredible amount of time, resources and energy. With 3dcart’s newest service, we aim to alleviate merchants of responsibilities associated with day-to-day store upkeep. With access to a personal webmaster, merchants can focus their time and efforts where it really matters – on improving and growing their business.

3dcart’s myWebmaster Service offers two plans, Personal and Dedicated. The Personal plan allows for five hours of service per month, with merchants limited to one job request at a time. Dedicated, which caters to more demanding businesses, offers twenty hours of service per month, with three job requests permitted simultaneously. While job time can vary from one task to the next, the majority will take between 1.5 to 2 hours. Furthermore, task completion time is also dependent on the selected plan. For Personal subscribers, a request may take 3-5 business days for completion, while dedicated delivers fixes in 1-3 business days.

Whether you’re looking for a webmaster to change your store’s font colors, set up 301 redirects, create a promotion or set up your email account & rules, 3dcart’s personal webmasters have got you covered. Scrape a little off your plate and gain some peace of mind with eCommerce’s first personal webmaster service.

Personal myWebmaster Service is available for $249.99/month and Dedicated myWebmaster Service is available for $499.99/month.

Grow and Expand with 3dcart’s Amazon and eBay Integrations

Running an online store means taking advantage of the various avenues that will expand your customer base and increase revenue. At 3dcart, we know that better than anyone, which is why we made integration with eBay and Amazon a top priority. With 3dcart, online retailers everywhere are able to better compete with larger online brands, expand their market with higher product visibility, and consequently better cater to their customers via multiple sales channels.

With 3dcart’s eBay integration, retailers are able to take products directly from their 3dcart store and list them on eBay. Whether you’re looking to create an “auction” or “buy-it-now” listing, 3dcart allows you the flexibility to conveniently manage your eBay listings directly from your Online Store Manager. Furthermore, orders from eBay can also be found within your admin, allowing for easy order processing, inventory control, and management.

Additional features of the eBay integration include return policy settings, item specific setup rules (i.e. item condition), buyer and shipping location blockings and/or control, and the ability to pull category structures into 3dcart for continuity. Special integrations such as “eBay Motors” can also be accommodated within the format and platform.

3dcart’s Amazon Integration similarly allows you to import your Amazon Seller Central orders directly into your 3dcart store for reporting and centralization, saving Amazon Sellers valuable time and energy. This integration allows for convenient, centralized order management from one advantageous interface. It’s important to note that the Amazon integration does not allow for retailers to list items from their store to Amazon (or vice/versa). However, Amazon Sellers will find their workload considerably lessened with the advantages and convenience of the 3dcart Amazon Order Integration.

We at 3dcart are always looking for ways to better streamline and centralize eCommerce channels. Whether you’re looking to integrate with eBay, Amazon, or both, integration via 3dcart is an optimal way to strengthen your business while providing you with the tools to easily manage and process orders. Why log into two or three separate sites when everything can be managed from one central location? Stay ahead of the industry’s trends and expand your market today by integrating with eBay and/or Amazon.
