Data Flow

Our catalogue can be downloaded manually (static flow: export CSV file including images links) or automatically (live stream: API integration, updated in real time).

Every item has the following information:
- Brand
- SKU/ID product
- Quantity available
- SRP (Suggested Retail Price)
- Discount
- Shipping timing
- Approximate weight
- Link with double images: an icon 120x120px and a high definition image (minimum size 200x300px, maximum 500x700px)
- EAN (European Article Number) code, if available

Here below are the main differences between our integration systems:




API INTEGRATION

It is a bidirectional data flow allowing to:
- read all items/products data base updated in real time
- automatically add single items in your basket and subsequently confirm all of them with a unique wholesale order to Supplier



This data flow integration system has been designed as a web service and it can be integrated with any software in JSON format, regardless of any language or operating system.



A complete guide for full integration is available at the following link: http://dev.dropshippingb2b.com/api/guide/en/



CSV EXPORT

In addition to automatic API integration system (web server), there is a CSV export file (Comma Separated Values) which allows you to download the catalog manually.

The system will update the catalog every two hours with this structure:Export Structure csv
After signing your chosen subscription, we will provide you User Name and Password to access to our product catalog.

By now you will have two ways to download the file

  1. Manually by connecting to  https://dropshippingb2b.com/export
  2. Automatically through a simple CURL call (for developer).

Note:CSV file has a field in the last column called "speed_shipping". This field indicates the product speed shipment.

In detail:

  • 0 - Slow shipment

This product is available from the official distributor: it takes up to 10 working days for this article and deliverability is not 100% garantuee. we strongly suggest resellers in dropshipping to do NOT integrate these products in their offers.

  • 1 - Standard shipment

This is a product stored in a different warehouse than the Logistic used for dropshipping (Delledonne s.r..l.): shipping takes average 3 - 5 working days and "order VS. delivery" ratio is around 95%. Beeing products of external partners, stock control is not completely in our hands, therefore in order to increase % of deliverability,we highly suggest to resellers in dropshipping mode to apply a filter "publish if QTY>X" , where "X" is STOCK value (column H in our CSV). By doing so, reseller will decide to reduce number of articles offered to his customers in order to increase deliverabilty ratio. 

  • 2 - Fast shipment

This product will be shipped within 24h. - not only: orders received by 12:00 AM can still be SHIPPED ON THE SAME DAY! Accurancy on these items is 100%

To resellers using external marketplaces  (Amazon, eBay, etc.) rather than their own websites, we suggest to cross column  M (id_supplier) and column P (speed_shipping) values, in order to achieve a better deliverabilty %.  We are at disposal to offer you suggestions on how to cross filter data based on each single customer needs.
