  1. Secure Ordering Processing via API - Allows Completely Custom and Client-hosted Order Forms

    Improving on the existing API by allowing API calls to process orders securely would open up a lot of possibilities for merchants. Here are a few advantages that I can think of:

    - Custom order forms/interfaces can be created and controlled by merchant's developers, in unique and creative ways that more suit a client's specific sales process needs.

    - Because the order form could be developed in the client's web application language of choice (PHP, Rails, etc), order processing can be more easily integrated directly with other applications that might be dependent on billing such as content management systems, forums,…

        • Improved / Update API Documentation

          It would be most useful if you can tell us what some of the possible values of certain field can be eg statuses so we can code to catch exceptions and know what else to look out for as orders come in.

          Your sample codes are excellent and is a great base to build upon. I've since built (c#) entities (entity graph) to match up to your xml responses, but it would be great if you can document the possible nodes that may or may not appear during difference circumstances. eg if an order is recurring or has taxes if…

          • Allow Postback Urls

            When an order occurs I'd love to 'post' a notification into my third party tracking system. Ideally there would be a global 'postback' url as well as product specific postback urls. When setting up a postback url I should be able to specify if I want the order parameters posted to that url or not.

            • api access to bundles

              The API provides methods for viewing products but no method for viewing a bundle and no way to add an image to the bundle definition. Please add bundle access to the API.

              • Access to Custom Fields via API

                I spoke with support, this is not supported at all. There is almost no point in setting up custom fields if we can't access them via the API when a new order is recieved at least. Is this in the works? if not, please vote to have this feature... its a big show stopper!

                • Make Product Inventory Levels Available via the API

                  It would be extremely nice to be able to dynamically update product availability... "2 of 11 remaining" or "Only 1 left!" or (more importantly) "Sold Out".

                  • add product category id and category name to product api

                    When obtaining the list of products via the XML api, it's missing the product category(s) associated with the product. Both the category ID's and names are needed unless you add a category api in which case we could pass back the ID and get the name.

                    • API Listener fires when recurring billing fails

                      We have a membership site with over 10k users. Right now suspending accounts is a nightmare because we have to manually suspend accounts whose recurring billing failed for the month. Can you add or give us the option to send failed orders through the API so that we can have automated billing?

                      • integrate the shopping cart with fulfillment center's order import API.

                        We host the shopping cart; however, my fulfillment center proces the orders and ship out the order when they collect the funds. I need to automate the order import process with any fulfillment center via API. This eliminates the manual process of order imports.

                          • API ability to READ multiple products in - not just one at a time!

                            Using your API, I can get both a list of all product IDs, and separately, all the attributes of a single product given the product ID.

                            In order to integrate with our CMS and have the CMS auto-create nodes based on the products we have for sale, we need an XML result that has every product's details.

                            Is it possible to get a result like this?

                            For instance, a call like:

                            https://www.mcssl.com/API/70223/Products/ALL?key=MY_SECRET_KEY_CODE

                            With the product ID being a "show all" kind of command, so that the XML tree has a node for every product, and with each node, all the…

                                    That way we can gather more info to go whereever we want it plugged into like another application, database etc.

                                      Please allow easier integration with Leadpages. Perhaps make a html only webform so we can use in leadpages. Currently it does not integrate well.

                                      • Expose AdTracker data via the API for Reporting system integration

                                        Hi,
                                        any chance the AdTracker data can be exposed via the API so our reporting system can integrate better with your system?

                                        Thanks

                                        • API {ProductInfo} flag for whether Sale Price is active based on Date Effective Range

                                          When I check "Use Sale Price" on a product, any website grabbing ProductInfo details via the API on that product has no way of knowing if that sale is still active or not, based on the Date Effective Range I set.

                                          The only bits of info we can glean from the API results regarding a Sale Prices are:

                                          (when it is NOT checked)

                                          <UseSalePrice>false</UseSalePrice>
                                          <SalePrice/>

                                          (when it IS checked)

                                          <UseSalePrice>true</UseSalePrice>
                                          <SalePrice>10.00</SalePrice>

                                          (when it IS checked but the "End Date" has passed):

                                          <UseSalePrice>true</UseSalePrice>
                                          <SalePrice>10.00</SalePrice>

                                          As you can see, no difference on the last two.

                                          I propose changing the value of <UseSalePrice/>…
