Custom Site Integration:BidWicket.com 3rd Party Integration Help
This document explains how to interface your existing store into a BidWicket.com store. This is only for software developers that have custom software already developed, it is not needed for normal users. Once loaded your inventory will be seen on the BidWicket.com network of sites and easily exported to eBay stores. You can load orders back into your system and make the whole process seamless and drive from a single inventory. You need to create a store account to access the connection options. Create a store then login and store related menu options will appear.
We highly recommend you view the 3rd Party Integration Help Videos before proceeding.
If you don't require real time inventory control there is a simple way to import your entire inventory via CSV file. You generate this file at a url and the system picks it up several times a day. Select Store->Store Connect->Csv Import for details on the csv import option.
