I already have a web site — I just want to add a
shopping cart. Can I use ShopSite?

Absolutely. We can either produce page and product templates that fit in with the existing design of your website to create a new shopping cart add-on - or utilize ShopSite's versatile OrderAnywhere feature to simply add Add-To-Cart and Checkout buttons on your web site, wherever you want them placed.

What's the difference between the Shipping API and the Order API?

The Shipping API is triggered when customers add or remove items from the site's shopping cart, when an item quantity is adjusted, or when the order's destination zip code or country is changed. The API then automatically calculates or adjusts shipping fees, warns customers if an item needs special handling, and deals with other shipping contingencies according to the store's needs.

The Order API is triggered after the customer completes the entire checkout procedure. Depending on what the store requires, the Order API can then transmit the order to another system, assign serial numbers, send shipping information to a delivery company, update a database, as well as many other automatic tasks.

How does ShopSite's Inventory API work?

The Inventory API is triggered each time the customer adds an item to the site's shopping cart and when the order is finalized.

When an item is added to the cart, the API tells ShopSite if an item is available, out of stock or there isn't enough stock to fulfill the quantity ordered.

When the order is finalized, the API sends the quantity sold to the remote system so it can update quantity-on-hand. Top

My remote inventory system won't work with an API. Can I still update inventory automatically?

If your remote system has import and export features we can develop an interface to synchronize its inventory with ShopSite.

What do you need from me to develop an API
that will talk to an outside system?

Tell us what you need, how the ShopSite data relates to the oustside system (e.g. the ShopSite SKU correlates to the other system's Product Number). We'll also need the other system's documentation. Top

What is the process of working with @stuff?

We listen carefully to your objectives and needs and ask pertinent questions until we have a clear picture of what needs to be done. We then send you a detailed contract that describes what @stuff will deliver, what you need to provide to us so we can do the job, the timeline for those deliverables and a payment schedule. That way everyone knows what to expect and when to expect it. Top

How long will the job take?

The time needed to accomplish what you want done depends on the complexity of the job and the amount of work you require. @stuff will always provide a timeline with our proposal so you'll know when you can expect the job to be complete. Top

How much will it cost?

Again, the cost depends on the complexity of the project and how much work is required. After we review your ShopSite needs with you we'll include our fee in our detailed proposal. Top

I'm a ShopSite provider.
Will you work with my company or my client?

@stuff works with many other ShopSite providers. We will work as your subcontractor or directly with your client, whichever you prefer. Top

Once you develop an API or other ShopSite programming created
specifically for me, do I own the developed code?

Everything we develop for you is a "Work for Hire." That means copyright transfers to you after we receive the final payment. Our contract has complete details. Top
