WEBSITE + API INTEGRATION
Are you looking to integrate third-party functionality into your website? Can your website benefit from the use of external data? If you answered yes, then integrating your website with an outside API is something to consider. Not all functionality needs to be handled within your website. There are times when integrating your website with an outside entity increases what your customers can do on your website. This additional functionality makes your site more streamlined and efficient while also being easier for you and your customers to use.
The number of outside APIs is seemingly endless meaning the potential for your website is also. Some of the API integrations we consistently perform are:
- E-commerce: Connect with an API that checks a customer's credit or debit card to approve or deny onsite payment. Or consider PayPal API integration which allows you to use PayPal as your payment gateway.
- Social Media: Websites that want posts from social media to be displayed on the site itself, without a user having to go to the respective social media site to see the posts, are also able to do so. Allow for tweets to be displayed on your web page. Let users "like" certain things with their accounts using Facebook API integration. Embed a Flickr API to display pictures from a profile... the options for social media integration are many.
- Google Maps API Integration: Allow users to pull up your business' location or find your business based on a search for like products. Utilize the Google Maps API platform to enable customers to find your business.
- FedEx/UPS Tracking: Incorporate real-time shipping information and allow your customers to track the delivery of their order.
