On October 1st, the new version of the Retailer API will be released.
Next to several improvements, the new API adds a Subscription API that sends updates to a webhook, and the ability to retrieve information about Promotions.
Promotions: creates the ability to list information about bol.com campaigns and promotions that are applicable to a partner’s products.
Partners use Promotions to increase the visibility of their products. To read more about Promotions in general, click here (in Dutch)
Subscriptions: with the Subscriptions API you can subscribe to changes on orders, creating the opportunity to pro-actively inform your partners about changes in orders and removes the need of polling for changes.
