Recently, we migrated to bol.com’s new rich content push-API. Bol.com, the multi-billion euro e-commerce giant in the Benelux, uses Icecat product content already for many years. And, is also one of the initiators of the Icecat Toy Data Model.

The use of the new bol.com API gives its use of the Icecat Free Vendor Central an extra dimension. Given that the Free Vendor Central allows brands to publish and improve their product content via this Icecat PIM. Free of charge. As a result, Icecat supplies bol.com’s catalog is directly with quality content. Which in turn is key to consumer purchases.

Syndication to authorized resellers like Bol.com

Icecat Free Vendor Central is a supplier portal that leading retailers use to directly on-board their vendor’s product content. Here, brand representatives can easily create an account and enter the product information that they want to publish directly on bol.com. The product data is not only used by bol.com, but also by other retail participants of the Free Vendor Central Program. At the same time, a vendor can restrict the syndication of its content to authorized resellers only.
