Why choose to upgrade to Full Icecat?
February 17, 2017
We advise users to start their implementations with free Open Icecat. Next, if the technical interfaces are satisfactory, and the business requires it, we advise to look into upgrading to Full Icecat, accessing Icecat’s complete database with multimedia product data.
What are the main advantages of Full Icecat?
The main advantages of Full Icecat are:
- Having access to the complete database of Full Icecat with all 10,000s of brands. Not just the Open Icecat brands that sponsor their product information. If you don’t see the brand logo on the Icecat website, the brand’s product data is only available in Full Icecat.
- Your complete catalog can be covered by Full Icecat with its millions of product-data-sheets in some 50 languages.
- Coverage guarantees for the stock products of mainstream distributors
- Access to catalogs spanning all major categories: Computing & Electronics, Telecom, Office supplies, Do It Yourself, Toys, Fast Moving Consumer Goods, Fashion, Health & Beauty, and many others.
- Additional service levels can be agreed upon for editor support and data standardization to cover the gaps in your portfolio.
- Your company’s own brands can be fully supported.
- Technical support for integrating Icecat in your ebusiness infrastructures.
- Fully compatible with the technical interfaces and data model of Open Icecat
Is the technical interface of Full Icecat the same?
Yes. The data model and interfaces of Open Icecat and Full Icecat are fully compatible. So switching from Open to Full Icecat is easy and requires almost no development. Changing access URLs and adding authentication to access the Full Icecat database are the main differences.
