General information

If you update your availability / price display in the online shop in real-time, a direct connection of your online systems to ITscope makes sense.

The ideal case therefore provides that only the specification of the existing login / password combination (eg for the onlineshop) is necessary for the retrieval of realtime prices and availability.

If your online system requires a special Web Service Account or similar, ITscope users should receive it.

Important: ITscope obtained no information on accounts nor carried price or availability schedules.

All communication takes place exclusively between the client and your (web) server.

The following variants are possible:

Type of connection particularities
XML interface We need appropriate test access and the official interface documentation
HTTP interface Please tell us the format of the HTTP / GET request
