How to connect Demandware to API2Cart?

First, go to the Account Manager page (https://account.demandware.com/dw/account/Home), generate dw_client_id (Client Id) and dw_api_pass (Api Password).

Then, add permissions for API2Cart API, so that our API could retrieve data from the store. Go to your Admin panel: Administration > Open Commerce API Setting > Select type: Shop & Data > Select context: Global

Then, specify client application-specific configurations:

For Type Shop:
