SellerCloud API & Webservices Overview

Webservice API Highlights



SellerCloud has a comprehensive API (application program interface) for managing inventory and orders; enabling third party developers to develop custom applications that can integrate with SellerCloud.
 
A few examples of applications built by SellerCloud that are already using this API are:
 
We have used these integration tools to also integrate third party software such as:
Activate
Magic Infosystem

Using the web service:
A directory of web services is located at developer.sellercloud.com
SellerCloud web service supports SOAP. In order to work with it, you should add a web reference to your Visual C#/VB.NET project. A suggested web reference is “SC” (as used in this documentation). The same code provided here is written in VB.NET.

Creating a web service instance
After you’ve added the web reference to your project, you can create a web service instance and download or update order information.
Remember that all web service methods require authentication: you have to specify your SellerCloud/CoreWebAdmin email and password in an AuthHeader. Any authentication-related exceptions are thrown by the service when you call a method.
It is also suggested to set a timeout value of 5 minutes to give room for any time-consuming operations.

   Dim sellerCloud As New SC.SCService
   sellerCloud.Timeout = 5 * 60 * 1000 // 5 minutes in milliseconds
   sellerCloud.AuthHeaderValue = New SC.AuthHeader
   sellerCloud.AuthHeaderValue.UserName = "user@email.com"
   sellerCloud.AuthHeaderValue.Password = "password

Please see the attached document for more detailed information about how to use the SellerCloud webservices.
