3rd Party API Integration
Integrations / 3rd Party API
Khaos Control Cloud’s API offers an unrivalled level of functionality and flexibility via our RESTful API. Provided at no extra cost to all Khaos Control Cloud users, it allows you to integrate the following key eCommerce operations:
New and amended stock items are uploaded to your online store automatically from Khaos Control.
Inventory figures are sent to your ecommerce website the moment they change in the system.
Khaos Control automatically checks for new customer orders, instantly importing them into the system.
Once you've picked and packed an order in our system the API will tell your website/app.
It’s not always as simple as flicking a switch

Three of the most common obstacles when integrating your ecommerce website
- Suppliers change their APIs. This could be caused by a bug fix, an update, or even an overhaul. But if an API changes or stops working it will lead to problems for you and your business. Our technical team regularly update our API to avoid show-stopping issues and to ensure that your integration keeps on trucking.
- Sometimes companies use niche technology or coding languages, which can interfere with 3rd Party APIs. The Khaos Control Cloud team are a multi-talented bunch though and any long-forgotten, or brand spanking new, coding languages that come along will be swiftly dealt with and converted in order to work with our API.
- When building a new ecommerce Website, it can be easy for developers to overlook the integration piece. In our experience, it can also be easy for this element of a new ecommerce Website project to fall behind schedule. This problem can often take time to rectify, as you will be reliant on your web developer to complete their work. The key is to make sure that you’ve provided your web developer(s) with all of the information and contacts they need in order to complete the work and that you liaise with the regularly. The Khaos Control Team are always on hand to help with any questions that they might have and sort queries quickly and efficiently.
