A Guide for eCommerce Partners on Enabling Seamless Integration between your client websites and the Sauce platform.

If you've noticed that requests from AddSauce have been blocked on your eCommerce platform, you're not alone. We've found that our servers are sometimes blocked by partner websites, which affects our ability to fetch crucial product data and imagery. This blockage appears to be based on the nature of our request, rather than the frequency. Thankfully, the solution is relatively straightforward: whitelisting AddSauce on your server.

Why Whitelist AddSauce?

By whitelisting AddSauce, you'll enable a seamless flow of product data and imagery between our platforms. This ensures that shared or syndicated information remains up-to-date, benefiting both parties and ultimately providing a better experience for end-users.

Identifying AddSauce Requests

To assist in whitelisting, it's important to know how to identify requests coming from AddSauce. Our User-Agent string is as follows:

USER_AGENT = 'Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_7) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/537.36 (

Steps to Whitelist AddSauce

1. Locate Your Firewall or Server Settings:
Access the settings where IP addresses or User-Agents can be whitelisted.

2. Add the User-Agent String:
Insert AddSauce's User-Agent string into the whitelist section. This will allow our servers to crawl your site for the required data.

3. Apply Changes:
Save or apply these settings changes, which should take effect immediately or after your server's next scheduled update.

4. Confirm and Test:
Once the changes are in place, it's a good idea to confirm by allowing a few test requests from AddSauce. This will ensure that the whitelisting has been successful.

Final Thoughts

Whitelisting AddSauce on your server is a straightforward process but essential for smooth data integration. If you encounter any difficulties or have additional questions about the whitelisting process, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

By facilitating this integration, we can both enjoy the benefits of timely and accurate data sharing, leading to improved operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.
