The Zinc API enables users to place custom orders on various eCommerce marketplaces such as Amazon, AliExpress, etc. These orders are not limited to any restrictions that would normally be imposed on a customer. For instance, Amazon may place a limit on your account to order only a small amount of a certain product. Via the Zinc managed account, you can add funds through multiple mediums such as PayPal, Bitcoin, wire transfer, etc. With Zinc API, you can also place orders and determine a shipping duration which suits your exact needs.
