Integrate POS and eCommerce using Public API

24Seven Commerce, the California based eCommerce solutions provider, has released the API (application program interface) which will allow third parties to integrate both web and desktop-based Point-of-Sale systems, various eCommerce shopping carts and leading marketplaces with each other.  Using the API, the software developers can write their own code to sync the inventory and web sales orders between a POS and multiple online sales channels.

“We have been very successful at building a SaaS model to integrate industry major POS systems with various well-known shopping carts and marketplaces to automate inventory and sales synchronization.  These applications are fully integrated via Octopus Channel Manager that acts as a middleware to enable merchants to sell at multiple platforms at the same time” explains the Co-Founder and COO of 24Seven Commerce. “We feel it is now time to extend the same set of solutions towards 3rd party developers, to help them develop their own integrations” he further added.

Presently, 24Seven Commerce is offering ready-to-use integrations between Point-of-Sale Systems such as – Retail Pro v8/v9/Prism, Microsoft RMS, Retail Hero, Keystroke, TallySoft, Erply, Vend, Lightspeed Retail, Windwards System5, and Shopping Carts such as – Magento, Shopify, Bigcommerce, Woocommerce, and Nopcommerce.  The company has also developed and launched two-way POS integrations with leading marketplaces Walmart, Amazon and eBay, and niche marketplaces such as fancy.com, Farfetch and SmartEtailing.

“We are keen to support the development of a community of application developers, start-ups and point-of-sale providers that will help grow eCommerce worldwide rapidly”, comments Sales and Marketing Head of the company.  “Such an ecosystem will provide vital support to small & medium merchants and retailers who want to take their businesses online using in-house resources and invest less in technology and infrastructure,” he said further.

The API can be integrated with shopping carts, marketplaces, point-of-sale systems, and mobile apps, and 3rd party developers can learn more about it at https://www.24sevencommerce.com/24seven-channel-api.html

In order to begin with, the application developers will need a sandbox account on Octopus Channel Manager.  The company, 24Seven Commerce, offers app developers sandbox account through its Technology Partner Program.  The company will also provide support to 3rd party developers in building the integrations.

24Seven Commerce is the first player in the South and Latin America, Middle East, South-East Asia Pacific, and African region to open up its API and is committed to foster a dynamic eCommerce ecosystem where teams and individuals could build integrations on top of Octopus channel’s API.
