XML integration or XML support is the transfer of product information, stock information, order or member information of your site to other e-commerce site by converting them into XML.

XML support allows you to display the product information provided by your supplier on your e-commerce site as if it were your own products. When your supplier updates the prices or stocks of the products, there will be an update on the site you have displayed.
Data is presented in several ways in XML integration.

2. XML file can be created when a request comes from the other party.
3. It is dynamically presented one by one when requested by using web IPs or web services. The most important point in XML support is product price and stocks. According to the variability of this information, it is determined how many times a day will be updated.
