Admin API reference

The Admin API lets you build apps and other integrations for the Shopify admin.

If you want to create Shopify-powered storefronts for platforms outside of the Shopify admin, including websites, mobile apps, and game development engines, then see the Storefront API instead.

Use our featured APIs to quickly integrate sophisticated Shopify functionality into your app:

  • Application proxies - Display data on a Shopify store page from an outside location.

  • Charging users for your app - Create and issue charges to store owners purchasing your app.

  • Carrier service - Register a new carrier service with a list of applicable shipping rates.

  • Fulfillment service - Register, edit, and delete new fulfillment services.

  • Liquid - Load dynamic content on storefronts with our liquid template language.

  • Multipass SHOPIFY PLUS - Manage your Shopify customers across multiple applications.

  • Script Tags - Load remote JavaScript into a shop's storefront and order status pages.

  • Webhooks - Retrieve and store data based on certain events in Shopify.
