Integrating custom diamonds or Diamond supplier API to your Jewelry website
TransPacific Software gets regular requests from diamond traders and retailers to integrate custom diamond data or supplier Diamond API feed into their websites. Both Lab Grown Diamonds and Natural Diamonds can be integrated.
Here is a low down on how we do it.
Instead of pulling API from Rapnet or other P2P diamond exchanges, many diamond retailers with eCommerce stores would prefer to directly integrate the diamond stock feed from their suppliers.
TransPacific Software is working with almost all the Lab and natural diamond suppliers across the globe; for a comprehensive list of suppliers, please click here
Integration is done through Transpacific's "custom diamond integration plugin"Here is a detailed video walkthrough:
However, integrating supplier/in-house/custom diamond feed has a few restrictions:
1) Diamond data format:
The diamond data dump which will be received from suppliers; needs to be in CSV, excel or XML format. Further, this data format needs to be maintained by the supplier. For example: if the supplier swaps the price and carat column in the spreadsheet; the diamond insertion script will error out.
2) Rapnet instant inventory:
Custom diamond data insertion cannot be combined with Rapnet Instant inventory services. So the choice is between custom diamond feeds or Rapnet Instant Inventory feed. However, the custom diamond feed can be integrated with the IDEX Diamond data dump.
3) Video and Media
Many suppliers will provide a link to a diamond video which can be pulled from the supplier’s server. However, there is little control over these video feeds as they are on third-party servers.
TransPacific Software's custom diamond insertion module also has a built-in markup feature wherein markup can be applied as per the carat weight or blanket overall percentage..
5) Multiple suppliers:
Diamond feeds from Multiple suppliers can be integrated.
Custom diamond insertion modules can be made to work AUTO without any manual intervention through a cron job.The cron which consists of an automated script updates the data daily.
7) Log :
A detailed log will be created on how many diamonds get inserted /updated and deleted.
The cost of integrating such a module will start from $1800 onwards depending on the complexity of the project.
