Build a sales channel

The Sales Channel SDK lets you build rich commerce experiences into any mobile app, marketplace, or website. You can use it to connect your users with millions of products from Shopify merchants. Shopify handles the hard parts, like payments, shipping, taxes, inventory, and analytics.

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

Some examples of existing sales channel apps are Facebook, Pinterest, and more. You can develop your own sales channel using the APIs and tools described here. You can also make your sales channel app more powerful by leveraging the rest of the Shopify platform (for example, by using our Billing API to create usage-based charges for order commissions).
