What can I do with APIs?
Using Arcadier’s APIs, you can take your marketplace to the next level. From integrating with external software platforms to building a marketplace mobile application rapidly, Arcadier’s APIs enables you to control all user, item and order data within your marketplace. You can create unique marketplace flows like recommending items to users during search, creating additional payment or order statuses or even building your own custom marketplace experience on a completely new front-end. Typically, we would recommend that you work with an Expert Partner on Arcadier to deploy these customisations for you! For more information on our APIs, check out api.arcadier.com
What can I do with the HTML and CSS Custom Code Input?
These two tools (HTML & CSS) allow you to make edits to the visual elements on your marketplace web pages. Using the HTML tool, you can also attach HTML-script based widgets into your marketplace; examples include Facebook pixels and chat bots. All HTML code goes into the <head>section of all user pages on your marketplace.
Using the CSS tool, you can change existing fonts, colours, utilise new shapes with your images and adjust the design for different screen sizes as well. Think of these tools as manipulating the look and layout of your page elements. You can learn more about Custom Codes here.

How is Arcadier Enterprise different?
Arcadier Enterprise is meant for larger businesses where they have very specific customisation or hostingrequirements. Arcadier Enterprise is a headless ecommercewhere you can fully re-design your marketplace front-end and perform complex integrations to your marketplace.
Though as our SCALE product tier provides APIs for customisation, there maybe some complex customisation that would not be able to be performed as it is still part of our standardised product offering. Do contact us if you have any questions on our SCALE product tier and its capabilities to suit your marketplace talioring needs.
