Any API is our initiative to offer free connectivity to any system you use that supports a REST API. This might be CRM that you use for leads for you business and need to pull in as Customers when ready. Or it might be an online store that you need to get Customers and Orders from.
Our "REST for the rest" approach makes this simple. REST is a industry standard of sending formatted files as secure documents. This usually requires some coding to "format". Usually, this turns out to be a lot of coding.
Instead we use our familiar Import mapping, where you match what you want (web_store/qty_ordered) with where you want it (Big Business Order Qty). Easy-peasy.
Then, choose whether you want to click a button each time you want to run a batch, or click a checkbox to set to run automatically. That's it. Your Orders, or whatever you want to send or receive is automatically sent or received, perfectly each time.
