AutoSync API Integration allows you to provide visualization features for your store's visitors, including the following:

AutoSync "View on Vehicle" Feature

The "View on vehicle" feature allows your store visitors to view a selected "wheel" type product on a chosen vehicle. This includes the option to view the vehicle from three different viewing angles.

If the "View on vehicle" feature is enabled, your online store will provide the "View on vehicle" link:

  • on the page with a list of products for a specific vehicle;

  • on the details page of the respective "wheel" type product.

Note that for the link to be displayed, the following conditions must be met:

  • A vehicle must be selected (using the Year / Make / Model / Submodel filter).

  • Both the vehicle and the "wheel" type product imported from AutoSync must have specially formatted images that can be combined to produce the images of the product on the vehicle.

To enable the "View on vehicle" feature for your store website visitors:

  1. Enable the setting Enable "View on vehicle" button in the AutoSync API Integration add-on settings.

  2. Make sure the domain of your X-Cart online store has been added to the Allowed Domains list for the respective API key in AutoSync dashboard.

AutoSync Visualizer

The Visualizer is a facility that enables your store visitors to conveniently select wheel and tire products for their vehicle, including the ability to visualize the chosen products on their vehicle submodel.

Access to the Visualizer is implemented through a special page in your store:

https://your_store_domain/?target=auto_sync_visualizer

(Be sure to replace the "your_store_domain" part with the actual address of your X-Cart store.)

The page will be available to your store visitors via the "Visualizer" link in the store website header.

The Visualizer page enables your store website visitors to type in their vehicle model name using the search box or use the "Shop by vehicle" filter to select the vehicle model they require and thus get a list of wheel/tire products to choose from.

When a visitor views a product page in the AutoSync catalog via the Visualizer, they can use the Add to cart button provided on the page to navigate to your X-Cart store and buy the product. Clicking the Add to cart button redirects the buyer to the respective product page in your X-Cart store, where they can add the product to their shopping cart.

To enable the Visualizer for your store website visitors:

  1. Enable the setting Enable "AutoSync Visualizer" page in the AutoSync API Integration add-on settings.

  2. Sign in to AutoSync portal and open the page for your API key in the API > API Keys section.

  3. Ensure that the domain of your X-Cart online store has been added to the Allowed Domains list for the respective API key.

  4. Under Notify Request for Quote By, ensure that the option "WebForm" is enabled.

  5. Expand the CONFIGURE WEBFORM section.

  6. Adjust the settings in the CONFIGURE WEBFORM section.

    First, in the URL (Use HTTPS) box, specify the URL https://your_store_domain/?target=auto_sync_cart&action=redirect_to_product (Be sure to replace the "your_store_domain" part with the actual address of your X-Cart store.)

    Second, enable the Redirect to external URL to fill RFQ form setting.

    Third, set the Request Type to POST.

    Fourth, configure the Data Mapping settings as follows:

    • "tire_id": "TIRE_ID"

    • "wheel_id": "WHEEL_ID"

  7. Expand the VISUALIZER section.

  8. Adjust the settings in the VISUALIZER section.

    First, scroll down the page to the setting Limit Number of RFQ Products to 1 and adjust it to YES.

    Then, set the RFQ Action Label to "Add to cart".

  9. Save your changes by clicking the Save button.
