Default Can I integrate a REST API into the store backend?

Hi there,

We currently use a REST API that serves data from a very large database.
We would like to power a store website with this data.

I would just like to know, how hard is it to get products via an API and use the results to populate the store?

Thanks

We have a lot of experience in doing this. We can do this via an API or we can also use our framework product to help with this if you have a file export of some sort:

Feel free to drop us an email with more details to see if we can help out.

Thanks,

Carrie

Hey!

Thanks for sharing!
Is it possible to get a free trial? I'd like to test it a bit before purchasing.
Or should I contact the Helpdesk?

Hi Michael,

You are welcome to drop us an email sales AT bcsengineering.com

We don't offer free trials for the product though as someone could easily use it once or twice as a trial and then get the job done. But you're welcome to email us and we can provide more details.

Thanks,

Carrie

Hi Alister,

Could you, please, clarify whether you already have an X-Cart-based store and, if yes, what version?

Because if you do not or it is X-Cart 5 you can consider using its own REST API module.

The module is free, so you are welcome to test it as much as you need. Here is the documentation for it.
