Vend Overview

With the Vend API, you can streamline your customer experience and build
customer loyalty by leveraging customer data, product information and stock
control.

The Vend API can help you create custom checkout experiences for customers that
improve the convenience and speed of their shopping experience. For example,
you can integrate your store’s website with the Vend API to enable customers
the ability to purchase goods directly from your website. You can also power
loyalty programs through the Vend API, allowing customers to earn and redeem
rewards points on purchases.

In addition to connecting customers to your store, the Vend API can also be
used to help streamline product management and stock control. You can use the
Vend API to provide customers information about product availability, pricing,
and delivery options as well as helping you manage stock levels and reordering.

The opportunities are endless with Vend API, here are some examples of products
you can create:

  • Custom checkout experiences
  • Loyalty programs
  • Product catalogs
  • Stock control
  • Reordering automation
  • Delivery options
  • Payment integration
  • Faster checkout process
  • Real-time product updates
