Explore documentation for the STORM e-commerce platform, intended for application and integration developers.
STORM is a complete e-commerce platform with three APIs for different purposes. A shopping site or an app is built with STORM API. A supplier integration or an ERP system integration is built with STORM Connect. A product feed to price comparison sites and partners can be retrieved by STORM Query. Your data is managed and monitored in STORM Admin.
STORM API enables rapid development of frontend applications such as shopping sites and mobile apps.

Product feeds for external search engines can be retrieved through an export API. Continue reading if you are a frontend developer.
