From now on it is possible to use Channable’s order connection with any custom eCommerce platform. Our Channable API enables you to retrieve all orders in real-time from your connected marketplaces (APIs), which will save you time and effort.
However, there are certain things you need to consider before choosing the Channable API.
Uses for the Channable API
- retrieving all orders from marketplaces
- automatic order updates for when orders have been shipped
- automatic addition of track and trace codes
- stock synchronization of individual items directly in the marketplaces
Restrictions of the Channable API
It is not possible to import products into Channable with the Channable API as it is not a plugin (use XML-, CSV-, TXT-files or Google Spreadsheets for the import). Furthermore, it will not update the stock of products within the Channable tool (this is the same for general order connections)
Who is the Channable API a solution for?
The Channable API can be handy for people who use custom made eCommerce platforms. Nevertheless, bare in mind that implementing the Channable API requires advanced technical knowledge and will take some time. It does not have a plug and play functionality. You need to set aside time for the development process in order to connect to the Channable API.
We hope that this article helped you understand the usage, the pros and the cons of the Channable API.
