I would like to be able to add items to cart on
Half.com bypassing listing page. Is that possible? I am using API to search for items so I have ItemID and available quantity. I would like to compile a list of things a user wants to buy on my site and checkout on
half.com bypassing the listing page. Could be just URL redirect with [half.com_cart_url]?itemID=123&quantity=2 Or even better yet [half.com_cart_url]?item(0).ID=123&item(0).quantity=2&item(1).ID=123&item(1).quantity=2... etc
@ifedotov1 No, there is no
half.com API for this. The only way a
half.com order can be placed is manually by the user. The
half.com API list is very small compared to
ebay.com and there is no parity between them.
@drshock thank you for the answer. Just to clarify, i realize that there is no API way to do this, I was looking for a way to have "Add to cart" button on my site rather then on
half.com site that the user would click and it would redirect user to
half.com cart and populate it from what he/she selected on my site. Even better if I could redirect them with multiple items, so the user selects what they want to purchase from specialized search results that I get from
half.com on my site.
Do you know if "pr" is an affiliate id? Seems to be half's product ID. It might not be necessary. The itemId would be the seller listing. You'd have to wrap that link in affiliate code using the the link generator custom url option. If you pursue this, realize that this interface could change and you'd have to adapt. You'll also have to verify that the affiliate link forwards correctly and counts the clicks. Behavior may also change based on the users' login state. If you pursue the multiple item cart idea, you should probably run it by EPN to get it approved since you are applying multiple items off a single click. But I'd expect it to be OK if everything is above board.
