Singapore, 21st August 2017 - Previously only available to our Enterprise package users — established companies looking to custom-build their marketplace — Arcadier has now made full API access available in its Growth ($199) and Scale ($399) packages.
With the addition of API access, users can customize the look and feel of their marketplace, build a mobile application for their marketplace, and integrate external applications to power new features on their site. It allows developers to build on Arcadier’s existing templates while retaining the flexibility of APIs. Examples of functions that can be added through the API platform are loyalty point accumulators, retargeting ads, email collection pop ups, and much more.
The addition of full API access to Arcadier’s Growth and Scale packages caters to entrepreneurs who feel that the standard features on offer suffice but are looking to add some customisation, or organizations that are looking for marketplace builders that are more customizable and comprehensive, yet still cost-effective.
Arcadier’s APIs are based on RESTful, which uses robust Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) technology as REST leverages less bandwidth, making it more optimal for internet usage. To use APIs to customize a marketplace, adequate technical expertise is needed. Arcadier recommends that users consult with their in-house developer or one of Arcadier’s full-stack developer partners. If you are a developer, you can have access to our API sandbox here and see our API list here.

Powering more than 2000 online marketplaces in 96 countries, Arcadier offers marketplace solutions for entrepreneurs and businesses of varying sizes, needs and geographical locations.
