View/Insert/Update Products

Refer to the specific instructions in our CMS, in the API/EDI area under shopping carts, setup, accounting interfaces.

The interface is very simple to connect with, no oAuth, just a simple API/FTP password provided in the URL. 

All these interfaces will update by Product Code, and this is expected to be a unique code in the system

Tip: You can import new images by using a URL for your image source... (the image file import happens shortly after you upload the CSV file) Or you can simply use a root relative URI for referencing local files. 

Bulk Updates (CSV Format)

You can upload a file in multipart POST upload format containing files as form parameters. This emulates the same functionality as our web based CSV importer, but you can automate this via your own application or cron job. Please export test data from our system first to ensure you are working with the right column names and formats.
