Admin API

Audience
This document is intended for developers who are familiar with SOAP and how to contact a SOAP service. If you are unfamiliar with SOAP we recommend you contact a developer that can assist you as our support staff cannot help with SOAP related issues.

About adminAPI
The adminAPI is a SOAP-based interface that can be used to view or modify certain settings in the merchants shopping cart administration area. This is useful for web hosting companies that would like to more seamlessly integrate the shopping cart into their platforms.

Before You Begin
You will need to contact CartManager to enable adminAPI access for your application. To enable access we will need the following information:
  1. Your application/company name that we will display to the user
  2. A URL to your privacy policies
  3. A URL to post information to once the user authorizes your application
  4. A URL to direct the customer back to if they decide to decline authorization
  5. OPTIONAL: a reseller username within the CartManager system. This will be used if the merchant is new to the CartManager system.

Once we receive this information we will give you an RUNAME that can be used within the API.

The Merchant
The merchant must authorize your application before you can access their information. Direct the merchant to this URL so that they can authorize your application:
https://www.cartmanager.net/cgi-bin/adminAPI.cgi?runame=RUNAME
Make sure to replace RUNAME with the one provided by CartManager
