Westcan Product API Documentation

Examples

Westcan’s Product API is granted on a by-approval basis to Westcan Dealers or Affiliates who wish to integrate our product library. The API uses authentication headers which use your key and secret, and must be called via HTTPS.

The following includes base call examples using PHP (CURL) or jQuery / Ajax..:

PHP/CURL Example:
function product_api($query){

$key = 'PROVIDEDKEY';
$secret = 'PROVIDEDSECRET';
$url = 'APIURLHERE';

$endpoint = $url.'?'
.http_build_query($query);
$curl = curl_init();

curl_setopt_array($curl, array(
CURLOPT_URL => $endpoint,
CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
CURLOPT_ENCODING => "",
CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS => 10,
CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 30,
CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION => CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_1,
CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST => "GET",
CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array(
"authorization: Basic ". base64_encode($key.":".$secret),
"cache-control: no-cache"
),
));
$response = curl_exec($curl);

$err = curl_error($curl);
curl_close($curl);

if ($err) {
return "cURL Error #:" . $err;
} else {
return $response;
}
}
JavaScript ( jQuery / Ajax ) Example
function product_api(params){

var key = 'PROVIDEDKEY';
var secret = 'PROVIDEDSECRET';
var url = 'APIURL';

var query = $.param( params );
geturl = url+'?'+query;

$.ajax
({
type: "GET",
url: geturl,
dataType: 'json',
beforeSend: function (xhr) {
xhr.setRequestHeader ("Authorization", "Basic " + btoa(key + ":" + secret)); },
async: false,
data: '{}',
success: function (data){
//if data.status = success do something
//if data.status = error do something else
},
error: function() {
//if fatal error do something
}
});
