Is there an API to get the product to the Sierra Trading Post shopping cart ?
I am writing a small web mashup and I was able to parse the JSON to HTML. Once the users clicks and selects a product they like, how can I move the item to Sierra Trading shopping cart ?

Tariq, There’s not an API to add items to cart yet. The primary API developer and I discussed cart manipulation via the API this morning and it may be possible to add some basic cart-adding features in the next week or two. These features would not include any user account access or transactional capabilities, they would just allow you to add a specific sku/quantity to their cart so when the user lands on our site, they can immediately transact.
Until those features are complete, the best way to handle this now is to use the “WebUrl” field on a product. Note that if you have your API key attached to an affiliate account you should use “AffiliateWebUrl” to set the affiliate tracking.
Hopefully this answers your question. Feedback and questions like this directly affect how we prioritize our API development so thanks for posting!
