|Using Shapeways as production backend (e.g., without any interaction with end customer) [message #67327] Thu, 02 May 2013 15:07 UTC
Currently, the Shapeways API seems to be aiming at automating uploads of models and putting it into a basket. However, we would like to have API functionality for ordering, paying and shipping as well. Actually, I thought the whole point of a Shapeway API would be allowing external parties to develop applications that use Shapeways as producer but providing a better user experience (that is, without using the Shapeways webinterface altogether).
Is there any chance on supporting the following features soon?
- Sign in without end customers having to login (with a shapeways account)
- Ordering automatically (using external app's payment account details)
- Defining shipment details (same or different for each model)
