Topic: english language domain create a product api problem
sanielsnow Posted: Sunday, September 23, 2012 8:11:35 AM
I am having a weird issue with some of the products using the create a product api.

http://www.zazzle.com/api/create/at-xxxxx?rf=xxxxx&ax=linkover&pd=xxxxx&fwd=productpage&ed=true&coveriamge=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FZ3Sbf.jpg

This link will go to the zazzle template builder, but "Insert Your Image Here" shows up on the pillow instead of the logo. If I change the domain to one of the non-english international zazzle sites, it works fine. ex:

http://www.zazzle.com/api/create/at-xxxxx?rf=xxxxx&ax=linkover&pd=xxxxx&fwd=productpage&ed=true&coveriamge=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FZ3Sbf.jpg

com.au, co.uk, and ca all produce the same result as the first link. This only happens to some of the products. The tshirts work fine. Any ideas?

****Update : If I change fwd=productpage to fwd=designtool the opposite products work. ie, pillow works but not the tshirts. This is consitent with all of the domains...hmmmmm.

Can you explain how you are dynamically adding the qr code to the product image and having it show up on qrcnow site before the user is sent to zazzle.com?

I am having the same issue as above. The image pulled from my server does not show up. Except, I am using the posted url:

http://www.zazzle.com/svc/getlinkdialoginfo?pd=PRODUCT_ID

with the parameters added. ie

http://www.zazzle.com/svc/getlinkdialoginfo?pd=xxxxxxxx&at=xxxxxxxxx&image1=http%3A%2F%2Fxxxxxxx.com%2Fzaz%2Ftestimage.jpg

where xxx.com is a declared domain

Great thanks! that is what I thought was probably happening. It is a shame that the zazzle api is not more advanced.

Cheers!

Yes, you can do as you describe. Your code can dynamically generate an image on your server with user input. You can then send it to zazzle to create the product or products. You do not have to be logged into zazzle to do this.



How? Your explanation below is not for me, right? What I am looking to do can be seen on urban dictionary.com to some extent. When you type a word to appear on a product, then click on a product, it sends you too a custom page that is processing the submitted text through a php script. The word appears on the product, THEN you are sent to the usual custom product API destination. I am interested in what happens to the product thumbnails before the "THEN." So theoretically, I could populate the thumbnails of an external store dynamically. But I see no reference to this in the API. Or is this some kind of trickery?

Does that make sense?
