BrightStores has a full suite of APIs that you’re easily able to integrate with outside systems, such as those that manage inventory, fulfillment, accounting and billing systems, order management, and more. Once that data is in your control, you’ll also be able to manipulate order data and store data programmatically.
What are API’s?
Wow, that’s a lot of new information! You may be asking yourself “So what are APIs”? And we’re here to help you understand. So let’s slow down and get into the details. API stands for Application Programming Interface, which simply means that an API is a sort of mediator between applications which allows them to communicate with one another. By using API’s, our team has been able to integrate the Bright Sites platform with hundreds of outside systems.
What API’s are available to me?
Can you connect them to a warehouse?
Now that you know all about APIs and your options, you may be wondering if you can use our APIs to connect to the warehouse. And the answer is yes! APIs are used primarily to integrate with order management systems specifically for order processing, fulfillment houses and warehouse systems for inventory management, and billing systems. So rest assured that your Online Stores can be fully integrated.
Do APIs make Stores more efficient?
Absolutely! When you enable APIs in your Client Stores, you can then take advantage of noticeably more intelligent systems. By automating your repetitive tasks within the Admin of the Store, it will undoubtedly save you time to do what matters most!
