PrintNow API Overview
PrintNow APIs is a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) developed by PrintNow which allow communication with PrintNow Services and their integration to other services. Examples of these include Orders API, Online Editor API, or Enterprise API. Third-party platforms can use these APIs to take advantage of or extend the functionality of the existing services.
The PrintNow Order API allows PrintNow to be connected to any third-party solution to pull orders into and allows the third-party to push back tracking information and trigger shipping emails in PrintNow that will also change status to shipped. CSV, TXT, or XML can be made available on the server to pull all relevant order data like billing, shipping, product options, integration IDs, and pricing. Order details can be made available within standard order directory structure, all in one folder, or in drop folders you wish to assign your orders to move into automatically. The OrderId of the the order involved along with the LineId of the line item within the order will identify the print-ready PDF files that will be made available.
Online Editor API
The Online Editor API turns any Storefront e-commerce shopping cart you choose into a powerful web-to-print solution by integrating PrintNow’s HTML5 Online Editor technology to bring online designing and upload capabilities to your website and deliver print-ready PDF, JPG, and PNG files for production. We offer Magento, WordPress (Woocommerce), & Shopify plug-ins already integrated or choose other 3rd party shopping carts that have integration capabilities. Add “Customize Now” buttons to your product pages tied to template ID’s in the PrintNow system that will launch the HTML5 Online Editor. Users have full access to the the Editor’s features and can save projects to their accounts, view dynamic thumbnails matching their customizations, and optionally download proofs before checking out. Once the user places the order a PDF file will be pushed and available via FTP.
The Enterprise API is for custom development projects when you need more then the Order API and Online Editor API can offer you. PrintNow can work with your team to establish routines, protocols and tools for building software applications. We will help specify how software components should interact and provide the building blocks for the programmer to put together.
