Introduction to Shopify APIs
Get familiar with how Shopify APIs work:
Work with Shopify APIs
Build commerce experiences and branded custom storefronts using Shopify’s APIs.
At the core of Shopify is the Admin API, available through GraphQL and REST. It provides data on products, customers, orders, inventory, fulfillment, and more.
Build custom shopping experiences with the Storefront API. Take your store to where your customers are whether that’s a website, app or video game.
Scale your business with the Partner API. When you use the Partner API, you can access the data found in your Partner Dashboard to automate front and back-office operations.
Payments Apps API
Use the Payments Apps API to manage merchant account data including payments, refunds, and more.
Deliver large-scale solutions for Shopify Plus retailers
Automate complex workflows for Shopify Plus merchants with Flow. When you integrate with Shopify Flow, merchants can add functionality from your app or service to automated workflows.
Build merchant-branded themes
Shopify stores use themes coded in the Liquid templating language to control their look and feel.
- Liquid: Build or customize Shopify themes using the Liquid template language.
- Ajax API: Add dynamic elements to Shopify online stores with a lightweight JSON API for product data, recommendations, and shopping cart management.
- Section Rendering API: This API allows you to update page content by fetching only partial elements of a page instead of reloading it entirely.
