Company API

The company api is to make changes to your shops, view all orders in your shops and do all the things a company needs to do to manage their webshops.

Companies and shops

Every user can own multiple companies on Bakeronline. First they register an account on our website, and after that our support team creates a company for them via our private dashboard.

Once they have a company attached to their account, they will be able to create new shops for their company. By default their shop will be inactive and invisible on the website. The support team is the only one for now that can activate shops.

For development you can ask us to create a company and shops for your account to get started with creating your integration.

Categories

Products always have to be in a category, so you have to create a category first before you can create a product.

Categories are always assigned to a company and can be available in multiple shops of the same company. That makes it easy to share the same products in multiple webshops. You can create a new category and after that update the shop to add the category to that shop and sort them the way you want.

Category groups

Added in version 0.3.0

When a shop has a lot of categories, it might be better to group categories. You can set the category groups of a shop, to group categories together.

Products

Products can only be in one category at the same time, so you have to create it inside a category by setting the category_id property. You can make a product inactive to hide it in the webshop.

Price types

A product has a price type that defines the price calculations and the way consumers can order the product. More information about price types.

Option sets

Added in version 0.1.3

Option sets group options that can alter the price of a product. E.g. you can create an option set 'do you want your bread sliced', that may contain the options 'yes' and 'no (€0.10 discount)'.

You can add option sets for a company. They are shared between all the shops of a company and you can add them to multiple products by setting the option_set_ids property of a product. After creating an option set, you can create new options in the option set. Set the price_change property of an option if you want to alter the price when the consumer selected an option.

Uploading images

Since version 0.3.0 it is now possible to upload images for various entities:
