Sales channel sdk

Everything you need to build rich commerce experiences

The Sales Channel SDK allows you to add commerce to any mobile app, marketplace, or website. You can connect your users to millions of products right where they are. Shopify handles the hard parts — like payments, shipping, taxes, inventory, analytics, and much more.

With this SDK, you can create Shopify apps that facilitate sales for a merchant’s chosen products. Your channel app is available for multiple merchants to install on their shop from the Shopify App Store.

Shopify has channel apps live for Facebook, Pinterest, and more, and you can develop your own channel app using the APIs and tools described here. In order to get started with the SDK, you will need to create a Shopify developer's account and fill out a request for access to the Sales Channel SDK. One of our developer advocates will contact you with more information on how to set up your app as a sales channel.

You can also make your channel app more powerful by leveraging the rest of the Shopify platform (e.g. use our Billing API to create usage-based charges for order commissions).
