Online shopping has opened up a whole new world of opportunity for the digital consumer, and savvy web users are well aware that the web has the potential to expand these possibilities even further. Convenience may not be enough; shoppers want more choice. The Bootic API helps to add some variety.

Bootic is an online shopping service that offers a wider range of products to the consumer by sourcing and providing goods that may not be available in general retail stores.

Here's how it works:

  • The Sources (suppliers around the world) are able to sell their products internationally using the Bootic service, where they were not able to do so before. This means that consumers have access to a wider range of products that would not usually be available.
  • The Vendors (retailers) are locally based, independent sellers who use Bootic to create online storefronts to sell the products provided by The Sources.
  • The Shoppers (consumers) are provided with a safe, well-stocked marketplace filled with premium products from quality sources.
  • Bootic handles all transactions and product shipments, allowing vendors to focus on customer care.

The Bootic API provides access to various internal Bootic functions such as search engine methods, product information, user account, storefront and product management information. The API can interact with any product or application that can make an HTTP request and interpret JSON data. Calls include GET/POST with returns formatted in JSON. Developers can visit the Bootic website for more information.
