This quick guide will show you how to easily import relevant product information from Icecat into your webshop. A lot of product data-sheets (PDSs) are provided for free by Icecat’s sponsoring brands.
In order to access Open Icecat, you will need a username and password, provided by Icecat. If you don’t have these, please register online for Open Icecat. The Open Icecat catalog is free and contains millions of product data-sheets.
Tip: During the registration you need to choose for the URL or Data (XML, JSON) version. If you want to make use of XML or JSON, make sure you choose the “Open Icecat Data” subscription. You can always change this afterwards, or create a second subscription for the URL (links to hosted data-sheets) download format.
If you need a higher product data coverage, you will need to upgrade to Full Icecat. You can make your request via our contact page or through your account pages.
