Sports South provides Firearms & Accessories, Hunting & Outdoors, and LEO & First Responders inventory. They have approximately 35,000 products in their product feed (the product count changes in real-time). The features of their feed include a full list of their product lines, detailed descriptions with images, electronic ordering, and dropshipping.
The first step in getting the Sports South data feed set up on your website is to reach out to their IT department via email with your account number and let them know that you'd like to utilize their data feed for inventory access as well as automatic ordering. You will contact your Sports South Sales Rep with this information. They will then respond with an Order Fulfillment Agreement form that you will have to fill out and return. Once you’re approved, you will use your Sports South Fulfillment Account Number and Password as the credentials you enter into the admin panel of your website.
