Data Transfer

Currently we support some push and pull methods to transfer your product data.

Pull

We download your product data files on a schedule. You just tell us from where and when.

Protocols

    • AWS S3
  • HTTPS
    • without credentials
    • with credentials via basic auth

      ​

Push

You upload your product data files whenever something updates to our S3 bucket. You just request a signed upload URL from our API and can then upload your file. You just need to make 2 simple HTTP calls for that.
Your files are encrypted and can not be accessed from the outside.
​
​

How it works

  1. 1.
    HTTP POST request to retrieve a signed upload URL.
    1. 1.
      Depending on wether you want to upload a full feed or update feed you need to set different body parameters.
    2. 2.
      You will get a key and an uploadUrl.
  2. 2.
    HTTP PUT request to the retrieved uploadUrl.
    1. 1.
      Don't forget to include the file in the HTTP body. :-)

Prices and stock levels can change very fast. To ensure that 8SELECT and the shop are in sync we recommend that you deliver one full export every 24 hours and an extra stock- price-update more often - up to every 15 minutes.
