Shopping Cart Software with an XML Web Services API

XML web services are the industry standard method of delivering data and application interfaces. They make it easy to transfer data back and forth while still keeping business rules and validation intact. AmeriCommerce has chosen to expose its entire platform through the secure and reliable mechanism of .NET XML Web Services. XML Web Services comprise not just pieces of the platform here and there where needed. Rather XML Web Service comprises the entire platform consistently and with a defined structure for getting to and updating the data that belongs to you. Add new records and XML Web Service runs through the same AmeriCommerce business rules that the Admin console uses.
