Build a custom storefront

The Shopify API supports custom storefronts that let merchants sell anywhere, even outside of Shopify. You can use the JavaScript Buy SDK to add a streamlined payment experience to any website, or use the Mobile Buy SDK to surface a Shopify store's products and checkout using native mobile GUI elements powered by Shopify's commerce tools.
