Sellercloud API & Webservices Overview

Overview

The Sellercloud API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of protocols and tools that allows developers to access the data and functionality of the Sellercloud platform. This allows for integrations with other systems and the automation of various business processes such as inventory management, order fulfillment, and shipping. The API can be used to develop custom software applications that can interact with Sellercloud, allowing for greater flexibility and scalability in your e-commerce operations.

Webservice API Highlights

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

 
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.

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.
